Question C-sections

Are they safe? How long does mom have to stay after its performed? Do Vets allow you to stay while its performed?

It's one of the risks that every breeder has to take; it is financially straining, emotionally straining (as the female could die, it's not common but it is always a possibility), and all of the time that will have to be spent bottle feeding.

As far as I know, the owner can stay, and the female should probably stay for at least 24 hours, like with most serious surgeries.

I just read about the possibility of bringing your girl in to get a c-section =( I'm sorry. I wish you & her the absolute best. You should definitely call your vet and go over all of your questions with him/her, different vets have different policies and I think a lot depends on how the surgery goes.

not trying to hijack the thread just wanted to know... if the dog has a c section does that mean it won't nurse the puppies? if so why? just wondering cause of the bottle feeding comment

A section costs around here 800-1000 but that would be for a Boxer size dog so might be cheaper for a chi.

BTW its not wise to breed her again if she has to have a section.

C-sections cost about $400 and my vets let me bring her home about 1/2 after she wakes up. Dogs can still nurse the puppies, but its just that they may not want to. Especially if they arent in labour when they need a section. If they have one or two before the section is needed then you should be fine. Without that they really have no idea where the puppies came from or whos they are. C-sections are very routine surgeries and complications are rare, but there is always that risk. Let just hope you won't need to go that route.

I have a question ? I am not into the whole breeding thing but being and working in the animal field for over 12 years I do know that some breeds are high risk for giving birth such as bulldogs,pugs, and usually require C-sections. Now, I have also heard of breeders of bitches that have had a hard time giving birth spaying them during the C-section after a first litter to prevent further breeding and further complications in the future. Is that common practice and best for the bitch?

Yes it is somewhat common. Especially if the uterus is infected. It doesn't take much time to spay them once they are already in there for a c-section.

I believe if females can't be bred and whelp naturally than they shouldn't be bred.

Well hopefully my Female will avoid the section all together and deliver a healthy litter of pups and she will do it effortless!

(I'm saying my prayers!)
