Background: Ventral hernias are commonly diagnosed is ewes and other animals, which are likely to occur during pregnancy, due to the increased abdominal content. Hernias in pregnant animals might contain the uterus with dead or live foetus inside. Caesarean section and ovariohysterectomy can be indicated to solve these cases. In case of unilateral ovariohysterectomy, fertility of the animal can be preserved.
