Planned C-Section

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.

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "I cannot stress how awesome the entire staff is at Animal Hospital of Woodstock. We are new patients of this office and I’ve been going through random drama with my cat and his food allergies. Any time I call with a “crisis” the staff is warm and understanding all while being prompt with advice or instructions. If you are looking for a new vet I highly recommend this office. Thanks to Dr. Chris for taking such good care and concern with Watkins!"

  • "Thank you for your evening hours! We ran into a problem with our dog at 6:30 PM (he had something caught in his throat) and we were able to run over to our regular Vet clinic and get care. Dr. Chris was great and a big help! He even checked up on us the next morning. We've been clients for a long time, and really appreciate all of you!!"

  • "I needed to take my black lab to Animal Hospital of Woodstock for a echocardiogram and they were fabulous.. they brought me back to the room, brought a bowl of water for my dog, and just made us feel right at home. Staff and Drs were very friendly. I would highly recommend going here!"
