Main Content

There are situations when it may be safer for the bitch and/or the puppies to plan a scheduled c-section, or one that we plan during the daytime office hours. 

Examples include:

  • Brachycephalic breeds (ex: Bulldog, Pug, etc.)
  • Bitch with certain illnesses (ex: Diabetes)
  • Dam with known reproductive anatomic problems (narrow pelvis)
  • Bitch known from previous litters to have uterine inertia
  • Extremely large number of puppies in uterus or singletons

Even when we plan to do a scheduled c-section, we need to be very careful not to take the puppies too soon, but to wait until they are fully mature.  We use collaborative information including the calculated expected due date, temperature patterns, progesterone numbers, and gut motility/fetal heartrates from ultrasound to determine the exact c-section date we are comfortable with on ALL of our scheduled deliveries.
