She is about 1 yr old. She gave birth to the first one and my wife had to clean it up she does not seam to want to care the first nor give birth to the others. I have no experience in dog birth I got the dog when she was pregnant because the family could not keep her. Does this usually take time for the next and will she start caring for the pups soon. I dont know what to do any he;p would be great. Thanks
John let us know how things go, please don't run away from this forum, there is great stuff here!
I sure do hope the mod sees the second post and puts a 24 hr ban on her(coming for another thread about rescue!)The response was rude and apparently they didn't read the entire post, he got the dog when she was already pregenant, that should make him your friend in rescue, not someone you attack. It really should of been handled more kindly. I wonder how many people are scared off of this sight for attacks like that????? You ask a question and people jump down your throat! This is a place to learn and we should help teach without the judgement!!
You will need to be sure these kids stay warm & get no drafts. Chi's are very delecate, especially the puppies. She will start trying to wean them around 3 - 4 weeks & you will need to be supplement feeding them with puppy gruel. You also have to make sure they don't go to long without eating as their glucose levels drop (especially at nite ) & can cause seizures & even death.
Please let us know how you made out at the vets.
Just incase she ended up needing a C-section, here is some possible financial help if needed.
Sue thank you for sharing the info on medical funding problems. I know it can be hard to come up with money when expenses are in the thousands. I was faced with it once and thank god for the fact that I was getting married, I used all the money for my dogs care.
Kind of off topic just asking about what another person had said.
I thought that after the dog bled the second time she would be ok to breed... Thats just what I had heard and being that shes one year old she could have already had the second blood flow since they come in heat about every 6 months.
