Most animals give birth without any complications. However, mothers occasionally need help with delivery. When a natural delivery doesn’t go well, we will perform a caesarian section. English Bulldogs need to have a c-section.
During a c-section, the mother is given an anesthetic. An incision is then made along her abdomen and through the uterus to retrieve unborn puppies or kittens. In some situations, we may recommend that the mother be spayed during this procedure, usually to prevent future problems of this nature.
