A two year old female duck was presented to the Referral Veterinary Polyclinic, VGO, IVRI, Izatnagar, U.P. with history of Egg bound and oviduct prolapse for past 6 hrs (i.e. 6 o’clock in the early morning). Close examination revealed necrosed area of the lower part of oviduct protruded from the vent and retained egg inside the prolapsed mass. Prolapsed mass was washed with 0.1% potassium permanganate solution. Lignocaine 2% gel was applied over the prolapsed part. The retained egg was gently removed through the cloacal orifice. Ice cold pack was applied over the prolapsed area along with purse string suture pattern around the circumference of the vent, allowing the egg to fit through.

Keywords: Duck, Egg bound, Cloaca, Vent, Potassium permanganate, Lignocaine
