Anybody ever had to get a c-section done on a dog? My Cookie dog just had 5 pups. One pup died inside and she was not able to push it out. She's at the Vet now having a c-section done to remove it ($1500). Is this unusually high? She's at a 24hr. emergency clinic. I'm sure it's more expensive because it's Sunday, but it still seems too high. Had to get it done though. Also, one of the pup's had the umbilicle cord chewed off too close and lost too much fluid and didn't make it. Ever seen that happen? Not having the best of luck so far this year.
