Abortion in animals is a controversial topic and one that is not taken lightly. Veterinarians perform abortions in animals when it is medically necessary or for the safety and welfare of the animal or the herd. The procedure is considered a last resort and is only done when there is no other option. Abortions can be performed before or after the animal is pregnant, depending on the individual situation. The decision to perform an abortion is a difficult one and should only be done under the guidance of a qualified veterinarian. It is important to ensure the safety and well-being of the animal before making such a decision.
