Given the societal emphasis placed on the deliberate breeding of purebred animals, the practitioner today is faced with issues relative to successful parturition in these animals. Today, the serious hobby breeder expects to use planned breeding management to result in a high conception and pregnancy rate and survival rates of offspring that may exceed published parameters. These clients may elect to schedule cesarean section to maximize puppy survival and assure that they have access to quality veterinary care. Using a combination of hormone assays, temperature changes in the dam and carefully timed and documented breeding management, a cesarean section can be planned. Emergency cesarean sections will still be required for the bitch that experiences dystocia or a medical condition that warrants intervention. Timed cesarean section results in a favorable medical outcome for the dam and litter and a better financial outcome for the owner.
