northwoodsGSD That's the exact same position of the stuck pup that caused our emergency c-section.
Not that I can say how often that particular position causes a c-section vs a diff. position. That was my only dealing with a c-section.

BlackthornGSD Usually they don't get suck across the cervix, though.

Xeph Nancy, no. Only 3 of 5 survived. They are all healthy and well. Owner and mother are exhausted. Bubbles is being a GREAT mother! She whelped the first two on her own luckily, so chances of complications from the C section were significantly reduced.

The owner didn't even have oxy, and I don't think she would have risked it anyway. Glad she went with her instincts

wolfstraum you see that pup whose spine is curled?????? THAT IS WHY I NEVER GIVE OXYTOCIN WITHOUT AN X-RAY!!! Good for her for going to the vet instead of giving oxy.....Glad everyone is OK!

NancyJ Did they all survive?

Xeph The owner was on and off the phone with me all day. She got concerned when there was no puppy for 5 hours. I had consulted with people more knowledgeable than I, and none of them seemed alarmed by the break.

She took the bitch in just to get an x ray and see how many were left in her, and the breech puppy surprised everybody

FG, yes, it was Bubbles
