Caesarean Section

A Caesarian Section is the surgical delivery of a fetus through the abdominal and uterine walls. The need for a caesarian can either be predictable, in the case of breeding animals with a history of problem deliveries, or unpredictable. Dystocia (abnormal or difficult delivery) can sometimes lead to the necessity for a caesarian. In making the decision to breed ones Pet, the possibility of a Caesarian Section should always be considered as one of the potential complications.
