Two years old Awassi ewe was brought by the owner to the clinic of the College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Mosul and he claimed that his animal had dystocia 12 hours ago. Fetal fluid was escaped since 3 hours ago. On clinical examination, the ewe was at term, as denoted by mammary changes and relaxed edematous vulva. The ewe was in a standing position and restlessness due to abdominal discomfort, without any abdominal contractions. Vaginal examination indicated that the cervix was dilated about 1 finger and the fetal membranes ruptured. No any medications were previously given to the ewe in the near past.
