The ability of female goats to conceive and bear kids following clinical peste des petits ruminants (PPR) was investigated in 18 does of the west African dwarf breed that recovered from an attack of PPR. The time interval it took for each doe to conceive post-recovery was calculated by subtracting the mean gestation period of goats (152 days) from the interval between date of recovery and date of kidding post-PPR disease. Ten of the does (55.6%) conceived earlier than 38 days, post-recovery. Six does (i.e. 33.3%) conceived at periods between 38 days and 57 days post-recovery. In two does (11.11%), pregnancy occurred later than 57 days post-recovery.
