Canine obstetrics: decision making when to do a c-section
Primary uterine inertia is the most common cause of dystocia in dogs and when combined with the highly variable pregnancy length (58 to 72 days from mating to whelping) causes significant confusion in managing ‘the overdue bitch’. Appreciating the normal reproductive biology including when and how diagnostic tests should be applied improves clinical decision-making and facilitates improved outcome in cases of potential dystocia.
