Dystocia in Dogs


Dystocia describes difficult labor and delivery. Although most female dogs deliver their puppies without any problems, some do have difficult deliveries. This may be due to a number of causes including large fetus size, small pelvic size in the dam, malposition of the fetus, uterine inertia, or breed.

Important Note: Most pet insurance companies exclude claims related to breeding and delivery so make sure you understand specific company exclusions before purchasing a plan for a breeding dog.
