Hello, I have a great dane who was bred July 12-15. She stayed at the same place with the male throughout that time period. We took her in to the vet and know she has at least 7 puppies. How do i know when she will deliver? I have been taking her temp and it goes up and down and she has already lost interest in food. Any ideas for me??? Please let me know. thx
We just delivered 9 great danes on the 6th of August, this is how the temperature for our was.for the last few days her temp was between 100.8 and 99.1 it was up and down for 3 or 4 days. Her temp was 100.1 at 9:45pm on the 4th. It went down to 98.7 on the 5th at 5:22am. This was the only time that it was below 99.1. She started to deliver at 10:57pm the same day it dropped below 99.
There was about 1 hour between most of the deliveries, except puppies 3 and 4 they came only 18 minutes apart. Our vet said to expect 8 so when we had 8 we thought it was over. Strangely the ninth puppy was born at 11:43am the next morning almost 12 hours after the 1st and about 6 hours after the 8th. Our babies are doing great at 5 weeks as of yesterday.
