In this video we discuss what to do if your pregnant pet is experiencing complications like pain or bleeding during labour and delivery. We also discuss what it means to be a responsible pet breeder, and some important things to keep in mind before breeding pets. We also discuss the responsibilities and medical costs required of pet ownership, and recommend that pet owners become informed of and prepared for these obligations prior to getting a pet.
