A non-descript doe was presented with the complaint of excessive bilateral abdominal distension and with unknown breeding history. Ultrasound examination revealed excessive anechoic area in uterus along with two fetuses. On caesarean section, dropsy of amnion was observed and one normal fetus co-twin with “bulldog” anasarcous fetus was removed.
