Took in a basset who is pregnant. Have mom and dad. Have her in the whelping box. got all my vet info and have READ READ READ. Xrays taken past Tues. told 7-14 days. her temps today is floating from 98.8-99.5. She will not eat and will not get out of whelping box. Just noticed jelly like discharge and shes breathing fast and heavy. Assume we are getting close to action. I am not leaveing her side. vet told me to call w/ any issues just wondered from exp. people if my thinking is right.
Yep yep yep sounds like shes pretty close to dropping. Just had my first litter 2 nights ago. the panting was about an hour before the first one appeared/ I know everyones different but that was how ours went. then she presented a sac with amneotic fluid that bulged for about an hour, It broke and we had to stimulate her labor with a little of help but we had a beautiful boy within the next hour. Did the xray tell you how many pupsshe was expecting?
We are having 9...the person we got the mom/dad form didnt want them and we took them prego and all. never done this but couldnt see her in the pund or just left alone. She just lays in her box and is breathing hard. Had jelly like mucus discharge and temp has gone from 100.3 last night to 99.8-98.5 back to 99.8 and almost time to retake. im excited but nervous.
When Cinnamon went into heat she was very very quiet about it. She did not have a whelping box. She never wanted one. She wanted me near her I guess. She cuddled up on a blanket that was next to me in the computer room. I did not even notice she was in labor until looked down and she was looking at me and all of a sudden her head went straight up and she tensed. It lasted only a few seconds. I sat down next to her and she seemed normal. Then while I was petting her... she did it again and I noticed her stomach was tense when it happened. I figured it out quick she was in labor. Good luck with the puppies!!!! Congrats
We have 5 little girls and 2 big boys. We lost 2. She stopped contracting and we called the vet. We did as told and when we got her there he gave her some meds to help her but it was too late. All the other pups are doing fine. THANKS to you all who passed kind words.Mom is doing well i pick her up in an hr.
