Well, just as the title says – this is a fairly cut and dried video of a French Bulldog (Butters, to be exact) under going a cesarean section.
The surgery was performed by Dr. Curtin, DVM, at Hanover Veterinary Clinic in Hanover, Ontario. For the more medically minded of you, the tissue repair that you see during the early part of the surgery is a repair on an umbilical hernia that seemed to ‘pop up’ while Butters was pregnant.
This section resulted in three healthy puppies, all of whom, along with mom, are doing well. There’s no volume not just because it’s always fairly chaotic during a section, but also because there was audible sound of the receptionist out front taking calls and talking to patients, and I didn’t want to compromise anyone’s privacy.
The video is after the cut, and if you have a squeamish stomach, you might want to just skip right to the end and see the happy baby puppies.
