Financial benefits:

Despite pregnancy and delivery being a natural process that most animals handle well on their own, complications can happen in dogs and cats. The need for a C-section is a real concern in many animals specially some that are bred with sub optimal anatomic structures (brachycephalic, tiny breeds, in breeding, mixed breeds, overweight animals, etc). The average current C-section cost in our area is above $2,000. Without this emergency procedure the fetuses as well as the mother can be at risk of death. Pyometra (infection of the uterus) is life threatening and requires emergency and complicated surgery and treatment. In many cases it can be fatal even when surgery is performed. The average cost of pyometra treatment is currently about $2,000 – $5,000. Let’s not forget the cost of unwanted litters, potential injuries from roaming pets, pain and cost of cancers, and the emotional toll of having to surrender your pet to shelters due to the inability of being able to care for them.
