A case of uterine prolapse in a 2-year-old Pointer bitch, which is an uncommon occurrence, is described. The bitch was presented with a history of recent parturition, with delivery of a huge dead puppy. Everted mass was discoloured, oedematous. There were some necrotic areas on the everted tissue. The bitch was presented in good physical condition. Ovariohysterectomy was performed as a purpose of treatment. During laparotomy, it was found that both of uterine horns were invaginated in to the uterine body and cervix uteri.
