Veterinary C-Section Byron Center

Nothing’s more important to you than your pet’s health, especially if your pet is pregnant. Prepare for that day with the help of our veterinarians at Blue Lake Animal Hospital. We specialize in an array of pet reproductive needs, including veterinary C-sections. Byron Center pet owners can depend on us for emergency care services and assistance when their pet is delivering. Here’s what you should know. 

What to Expect During a C-Section

When your pet is ready to give birth, it’s an exciting time. There are a few things that need to be done to ensure your pet’s safety and health throughout the process. In some situations, a C-section, or cesarean section, may be necessary. Essentially, this is a surgery done to remove the newborn animal from the womb. 

C-sections are generally used in circumstances where natural birth proves too difficult or dangerous. This provides a safer alternative for your pet. Most animals recover quickly after the procedure, so it’s a great option to discuss with our veterinarians in advance of your pet’s delivery. 

Our Reproductive Health Services

Blue Lake Animal Hospital helps your pet feel its best throughout its reproductive years. We have a wide variety of services that promote longevity and fertility in your pet. We offer: 

  • Breeding Advice. We can help you determine the best time to breed your pet. Our in-house progesterone services are used to pinpoint ovulation and peak fertility time periods. There are many other factors to breeding your pet that need to be considered. We are happy to discuss these variables as well. 
  • Neonatal Care. There are instances in which newborn puppies or kittens are not doing as well as they should be. Our team is trained to help provide for their specific needs. 
  • Fertility Exams. We can assist with male and female fertility needs. We do regular exams to check for abnormalities, as well as determine the best course of treatment. 
  • Artificial Insemination. This is a feasible option when a natural mate is not possible nor preferred. For some dogs, this may be the safest breeding option, so discuss with our vets to learn more. 

In addition to these services, we also perform genetic testing, pregnancy care and more.
