Aborting a Dog Pregnancy

It's a common question: can dogs have an abortion and how much does it cost? The answer is yes, dogs can have an abortion. The cost of the procedure will depend on the veterinarian and the type of abortion being performed.

Many people don't realize that dogs can get pregnant and have abortions just like humans. There are many reasons why someone might want to abort a pregnancy in their dog. Maybe the dog isn't old enough and the owner doesn't want to deal with puppies, or maybe the dog has health problems that could be passed down to the puppies. Whatever the reason, there are a few things to keep in mind if you're considering aborting an unwanted pregnancy in your dog.

First, it's important to make sure that your dog is actually pregnant before you go through with an abortion. This can be done by taking your dog to the vet for a blood test or ultrasound. Once you're sure that your dog is pregnant, you need to decide what type of abortion you want.

What is the cost of a dog abortion?

If your dog had an accidental mating within the first 15 days of her heat cycle, the costs of abortion may range from $45 to $175, depending on where you live. Drug-induced methods are around $100 to $700. Unscrupulous sellers may try to sell you a cheap dog abortion, but make sure that you get your veterinarian's best referral before going forward with any procedure or surgery.

How to avoid a dog abortion?

There are two types of preventative measures to avoid an abortion in the first place; Neutering and Spaying. Spaying refers to the removal of the reproductive organs of female dogs and cats, while neutering is the removal of the testicles in male dogs and cats. 

According to the ASPCA, “About half of all U.S. dogs are owned by people who want to keep their dogs sterilized.”

What are the risks?

While abortion is a relatively safe procedure in dogs, there are still some risks associated with it. The most common complication is infection, which can occur if the abortion is not performed properly. Other risks include retained placenta, damage to the uterus, and blood loss. In rare cases, abortion can also lead to death. Therefore, it is important to consult with a veterinarian before deciding to abort a pregnancy in dogs.

How long does it take for my dog to recover from an abortion?

Your dog will need to be checked by a veterinarian for approval of the procedure. If everything is ok, then  she should be back to her regular activities in a week or two.
