We studied the distribution of reproductive cases presented at the University of Ibadan Veterinary Teaching Hospital, Nigeria for 15 years (1995 to 2009). Records of presented cases were sourced from the case files and subjected to descriptive analysis. The recorded reproduction cases were distributed by the reproductive condition, species, breed, sex and year of occurrence. Dystocia>pregnancy diagnosis>mastitis>transmissible venereal tumor>metritis were the most frequently presented conditions while 68.6 and 18.1% of the presented animals were of the canine (mostly German shepherd) and caprine (mostly West African dwarf) species respectively. 83.7% of these presented animals were female and high frequency of cases were recorded in the in the year 2000 and above. These results were discussed and it was concluded that the presentation of animals with reproductive conditions are dependent on clients’ awareness of Veterinary services, economic status and managemental practices as well as the sex and socioeconomic potential of the patients.
