What is involved in inducing labor in cats?

I would like to induce the labor of my cat

Your cat's doctor would have to handle this. A human should never try to induce a cat's labor. A cat can delay labor and delivery if she wants to.The kittens will come when nature is ready.

I don't believe that inducing labor is a good idea. There are complications that can occur if labor occurs prematurely. You should consult your veterinarian if there is a good reason for inducing labor.

A qualified veterinarian would be necessary to induce labor in a cat. The same hormones that induce labor in humans work just as well in cats. But these are not available to the general public.

You should never induce the labor of a cat without the recommendation of a vet. Unless your cat is already in labor but is having trouble getting the kittens out you should let her have the kittens naturally.

I do not think that, that is possible for you but youccan see the vet and see what they have to say


Answer by  Vllad45 (1886)

You do not want to do this unless the cat is very, very over due and you know this for a face. It is unsafe and if not done by a vet may result in the death of some or all of the litter and likely the mother as well.
