How Much Does a Dog C Section Cost?

It is known that not all dog breeds can deliver their puppies naturally, and because some of the smaller breeds have pelvic canals that are just too small to handle the size of the pups for a natural birth, a c-section can become a necessity.

Like its human counterpart, the procedure is done near to the end of the full gestation period so the puppies will have the chance to survive.  This procedure also helps the mother survive as opposed to taking the chance of dying while giving birth.
