    Hi,
    Could someone tell me the costs of a c section for a frenchbull dog. I can't seem to find it anywhere just rough estimates.
    I would appreciate it

    Thank you very much

    Your best bet is to ring round local vets.

    Mines were always out of hours vet but coming up 2 years ago in August was £1300 for french bulldog and almost 1 year ago £1550 for boston terrier. Do not know prices for normal hours vets as mine would never let me book them in for sections. This is part of the reason I no longer breed. Good luck. Hopefully your girl will self whelp.

    There's probably no set price because they don't know until they get in there how difficult it may be; how long/complicated the anaesthetic may be which will be in part down to soft palate/breathing issues the bitch might have. Then how long spent getting the puppies out and reviving them - that will depend to some extent on how many pups there are. Removing any stuck ones, repairing any damage, treating any infections if a pup has died inside.

    Will vary depending on area…would have thought it would have been considered prior to mating…

    Perhaps that's what OP is doing; it is their first post after all. There's no reason to suppose the bitch HAS already been mated. Possibly best to hold back on the judgement until we have the facts.

    My dog has been mated, I was seeing how much it can cost if I was to breed her.

    Did you mean to say that? Or that she hasn't been mated?

    In that case, you also should be thinking of the cost of all the tests she should have before mating.

    I see someone has replied on your other thread.

    The other thing to consider is whether she is worthy of breeding from. What characteristics does she have that will improve the breed? Does she have open nostrils for example. Has she been shown and done well.
