I have 2 Pitt Bulls. The female is 2 weeks pregnant. It happend wheni was on a business trip. ANyways, she just had 10 puppies in her first heat like 7 months ago. I cant have it happen again. Is there such thing as an Abortion for dogs? I dont want the puppies to die?
Yes, there is an abortion option. I do believe in order to have the pups aborted, she would also have to be spayed. You have to weigh the risks of both. It's not in your dogs best interest to have pups again, after she just produced a litter. If she is indeed pregnant again, I would highly suggest an abort/spay immediately.
We had Maggie's puppies aborted when she was spayed. she was only 7 months old, we had the appointment, and surprise she went into heat 2 days before the appointment, so we went ahead and made another one, well, I guess Max got lucky cause when we took her in that morning the vet said she was pregnant. He also told us unless we were dead set on pups that we should abort, because she was to young and so small, we could run a risk of an emergency c-section, so I told him to go ahead, we had already made the decision not to breed them. It was no problem, he just took the babies while spaying her, I didn't even ask how many she had. It would make me to sad. I know I did the right thing. Max was neutered the same day, He acted worse than she did about things. Typical Male!
It is to my understanding that being spayed for a dog is equivalent to having a hysterectomy for a human. An abortion is just that...getting rid of unwanted that could cause potential damage to her well being in the long run. I would assume that they would take the puppies first and then do the spay so it can't happen again. It would be best to just find out from your vet if there is a gestation limit. I've heard of it done as late as the last quarter of gestation. But every state would have it's own limits.

our male got around our female when she was in heat (by accident) and she ended up having pups but she just had pups 7months when she got pregnant they and her turned out fine, i don't know i think that if it was your fault that they tied i don't believe in killing them...inoccent puppies just go ahead with the litter and then get her spayed, more risks involve having an "abortion" my opinion
The female Pitt I am talking about had a litter of ten at 10 months old! She is now a year and a half. So she just got thru that litter. Everything went well. I dont want to do it again. I am in the Navy. I have to go back or I go to jail. I have no options. I would love to keep them. I hate killing as well. The most she could be is 2 weeks along, maybe less. So i think it is the right thing to do. I am happy to hear other peoples thoughts. I have 8 Pitt Bulls that are very friendly, even with each other. All of them are under 4 years old. I take them when kowbod wants them. There are to many as it is. I dont need to add to the amount. If anyone is enterested in a pitt let me know. located in california.
P-I-T. I think your decision to abort and spay is the best one. If the others you own are not altered as well, you may be able to find a place that can do all of them and give you a discount. I don't know where in Cali you are located, but in the San Francisco Bay area, there is an incredible pit bull rescue called Badrap that may be able to send you in the right direction for cheap s/n for all of them. http://www.badrap.org
