Parturitions with caesarean sections, digital manipulation or medical treatment and parturitions without complications of 393 bitches, belonging to the breeds Dachshund (n = 249), French bulldog (n = 34), Bernese mountain dog (n = 83) and Boxer (n = 27) were investigated. The development and predisposing factors of dystocia and the breeding environment were evaluated by means of an interview of afflicted breeders and veterinarians. Dystocia maybe induced by dietary mistakes, hence it is of particulary importance to balance self-cooked diets for pregnant bitches.
