Why do a Cesarean?
- The puppies are not deliverable, because of various reasons, including puppy size, pelvic size and shape, or even a pup in a bad position may make the call for a fast C-section in order to save the litter.
- Uterine Inertia – Any signs of fetal distress may make you want to quickly consider a C-section. Not all labor leads to a natural birth. Some signs of fetal stress include black, red or green discharge, which often means the placenta has detached, or there is fetal discharge (both can indicate problems).
A C-section should never be performed BEFORE the dam’s overdue date, it is always best to wait till labor starts, OR the temperature drops below 99°F and stays down. Timing a C-section is EXTREMELY important for puppy survival.
Always remember, a C-section can be a good thing, and be VERY rewarding to you and your vet.
