Cesarean Section with or without Ovariohysterectomy

 A cesarean (C-section) is a surgical procedure in which unborn puppies are surgically removed from the mother dog’s uterus. It is performed when an animal is having problems while delivering the newborns and is typically an emergency surgery. For certain breeds prone to difficult births, such as English bulldogs, a cesarean may be planned.

Sometimes, the dog can also be spayed following the surgical removal of the puppies. This prevents future pregnancies and eliminates the risk of future cesarean surgeries.
