Abstract: Hydrometra is one of the main reasons for infertility in goats, which is also known as pseudo-pregnancy. A primiparous non-descriptive indigenous doe of one and a half years old; with a distended abdomen was brought to the Shahedul Alam Quadery Teaching Veterinary Hospital (SAQTVH), Chattogram Veterinary and Animal Sciences University (CVASU), with a history of breeding five months and fourteen days earlier. No fetal tissues or palpable mass was felt during the per-vaginal examination or ventral abdominal palpation. Fetal structures and placentomes were not present. All the vital parameters were within the normal range. Ultrasound examination revealed hydrometra which is characterized by anechoic fluid filling the entire uterus; divided by thin hyperechoic trabeculae. A single dose of 250 μg of Prostenol® Inj. (Cloprostenol- Synthetic Prostaglandin F2) were administered intramuscularly (IM). Three days following the initial Prostenol® injection dosage, uterine fluid drainage was seen, and the animal recovered without difficulty.
