Dog C-Section Pictures

You may remember that the day after Thanksgiving I was quite chuffed to do a scheduled c-section on a bulldog. Here are some before and after photos.

This is me, presenting the enormous Y-shaped uterus after I pulled it out of the abdomen. It is stuffed with 6 big puppies.









This photo is a little blurry because it's an action shot, me pulling one of the pups from the warm, wet uterus into the cold, bright world.









6 weeks later I had the pleasure of seeing the pups again for their first vaccinations. They were all fat and beautiful. Unfortunately, I couldn't manage a picture of all 6 in one view.













Like Sausages!

I have to ask: how big is a nulliparous dog uterus to begin with? Is it the size (diameter) of your pinkie finger? Bigger? Smaller? I'm not surprised that they're Y-shaped. We humans are a little odd!
