No time is more critical than when your pet is preparing to give birth. As a pet owner, your mission is to make sure your pet’s delivery goes smoothly. There are certain health risks associated with birth, especially for French bulldogs. Due to the pups’ cranial size and structure, many mother French bulldogs are unable to give birth naturally and require a C-section. Blue Lake Animal Hospital recognizes the stress you are under. Our experienced veterinary team is familiar with French bulldogs and their specific needs. To learn more about what to expect during a French bulldog C-section, Caledonia pet owners can give us a call.
Everyone can recognize the iconic French Bulldog. Adorable, smart and full of personality, these dogs are very popular among pet owners as cherished companions. Every pet owner wants their furry friend to recieve the best care throughout its life, and pregnancy is an especially important time. If your Frenchie is ready to give birth, one thing you should know is that many of these dogs experience complications during natural birth. Bulldog puppies often have to be delivered via C-section due to the differences in physical structure between pup and mother. The big heads and wide chests do not fit through the birth canal naturally, so you’ll want to prepare.
When a French Bulldog enters labor, there’s a high chance that the puppies may get stuck in the birth canal. This poses a threat to both the mother’s and puppies’ lives, making prompt medical assistance necessary. Blue Lake Animal Hospital routinely performs C-sections on French Bulldogs, so contact us right away if you believe it is time for your pet to give birth.
Natural birth is not recommended for mother French Bulldogs. Owners should anticipate bringing their pet over to our office to ensure its safety. Cesarean section deliveries reduce the probability of many complications for several reasons. First, a C-section ensures that all puppies have been safely delivered. The procedure also helps avoid whelping fatigue. If there are more than two puppies, the mother will likely undergo lots of physical stress during birth. Since Frenchie pups are more difficult to whelp, having to do so multiple times is very hard on the mother.

They got our bunny in right away as she was in pain. They were great and knew how to handle. She's still somewhat new to us so it was comforting to know we came to the right place.
I had to bring my new rabbit here. They were very friendly on the phone and in person. I have already scheduled another appointment at this location. I recommend this place!
