She'll probably wind up pregnant. Shes only ten months old, so she will be a year old when she has puppies. A very immature female and they make the worst mothers.
I will say taht you can have the litter aborted, but everyone screams and flails when that is suggested. You can take her in tommarow and ask the vet to administer the mismate shot.
I suggest you get some info books on whelping, hand raising pups, and discuss scheduling a c-section with your vet. Doxies are not always the easiest breeds to whelp and an immature dog can be quite the nightmare.
Find your local emergency vet as well.
Beyond that, remove your female from your male. Breeding every single day is not healthy. Keep them seperated for the next three weeks and use that time to hone your skills on whelping now that you have caused your immature, undeveloped bitch to become pregnant.
I can't belive the flood of people just letting hteir bitches wander around in full flaming season to be pounced upon by any male.
Not trying to sound judgemental or mean, but, why didn't you seperate her from your male. She is still a baby. Ten months old is ridiculous for her to get pregnant. I would have her spayed as soon as you can and hopefully by some miracle she is not pregnant.
I had a chihuahua and she was breed at that age she was a yr old when she had the puppy she only had one.But like everyone says on here I should have not let her and now I realize that.They were right .She did have the puppy but we had to help with her having it and also we had to make her feed it because she did not know what to do at first. Eventually she got the hang of it and did good but I would not recommmend her having them either I was very scared for mine too. good luck
Along the same lines as Icy, puppys/kittens have unplanned litters all the time. While it taxes the mom a bit, taking away from the nutrients that they need themselves to complete growing, it doesn't NECISSARILY harm them otherwise.
Considering the breed, it very well can harm them. We're not talking about el generic mutt, we're talking about a small very selectivly deformed breed of dog.
I also have two cats born from a 6 month old mother who was found dead with more kittens impacted inside of her, one stuck, and not all her adult teeth themselves. Both of those cats have problems, one of the 3 that made it died of heart failure at 3 weeks of age, all three are below adverge size (4lb) and the list of issues they where born with goes on and on and on.
I know, but there is a risk any time any animal (including people in under-developed countries or even ours) gets pregnant and gives birth. Not too long ago, while I was whining about how difficult of a time I had breeding pug several years back, someone one I met went on to brag on how thier pug got bred at 7 months, whelped NINE puppies at 9 months and raised them all by herself--no help even!
My mouth dropped. It does just really depend on the individual bitch. Of course there are more risks if the bitch is not mature or too old.
It is not that you can not make noise, it is that you do not want hte male to attempt to withdraw early and harm himself, or the female to turn or bolt taking the male who is tied by the phallas with her.
This is why it is best to be there with them and make sure you have control of the situation in the perfect world.
Hello...Looks like everyone is giving the advice I was going to give. Well again, a bitch should never be bred on her first heat. This could cause so many problems. The pups could be under-developed and she could have problems whelping etc etc. If they tied, go to your vet and abort the pregnancy. I hope everything works out for the best and keep us update. Thanks!
I called some vets and they all said not get them spayed, because they are both the male and female are purebred dashchund and the vets want us to let her have the puppies and if we abort the puppies there is a slight chance she might die... they told us to buy a breeding book and puppy food
OMG that is BS. Don't get your dogs spayed because they are purebred is so so...whats the word....Oh yeah stupid. You need to see a different vet no doubt. And I have never heard of a dog dieing from an abortion. I have heard many rescues say they do this with pregnant rescue and they come out fine. That is such a load of BS. You need to see a different vet period.
I wouldn't spay while your dog is pregnant-no vet would do that-but if you let her have the litter I would have her spayed afterward. My vet doesn't offer a mismate shot, I asked them. There are probably some risks with that, same as if you let your dog have her pups, and there are risks with practically any procedure,spay surgery included. Most of the time though dogs come through spay/neuter surgery fine-of course neutering is far less invasive than spaying. If you are really scared for your dog, you coud neuter the male and not let your female outside without you if you don't fix her..... However I think you should do whatever you think is best for your dog.
My italian greyhound is scheduled for spay surgery this coming weekend. I know she'll be ok because her vet is very very good.
