All calculations of the bitch’s due date should be made from the LH surge. Estimation of due date from breeding dates is very inaccurate due to multiple factors: variability in the length and timing of the receptive period; variation in the interval of mating to the LH surge; the length of time that sperm may be viable in the bitch’s reproductive tract (2–10 days); delayed oocyte maturation; time interval from breeding to oocyte fertilization; and the fertile lifespan of the oocytes.

Fetal membranes can either be manually removed or left in place during surgery depending on the surgeon’s preference. If the cervix is closed prior to delivery, it may be prudent to remove the fetal membranes; however, if the cervix is open, then either choice is acceptable. Some surgeons will remove the fetal membranes if they are not too tightly adhered. Others will remove them with gentle traction regardless of degree of attachment. In cases where the cervix is not open, it generally will relax within 24 hours of delivery.
