  • Friend found a pregnant dog and I have another question?

    Ok so I asked not to long ago about this little dog that my friend found. yesterday her temp was in the 99's all day but then last night it wen back up to 100.1 and 100.2. when I talked to my vet on thursday he said that when it was consistently below 100 she would have her pups within 12 to 24 hours. her temp was in the 99's for at least 24 hours and now its 100.1. I don't want to bug my vet if this is a stupid question which I know sounds stupid but he has helped me out so much with this little dog mostly for free and I don't want to take advantage of that. should I expect puppies soon or do I still have some time? I don't know her due date she was pregnant when we found her.

  • My dog is pregnant, I need a little help?

    Alright so my friend found a pregnant dog about a month ago, we don't know when her due date is, we didn't even know she was pregnant until about a week after we found her when I took her to the vet just to have her looked over. Today she started producing milk and her temp dropped to 98.6. I have done this before but it has been awhile. How long after the milk comes in will she have her pups usually? I need to know so I can take work off. I already have everything I need for her (and then some) but I don't want to take the chance of leaving her alone while I go to work and for her to go into labor alone it makes me nervous. Also she has a clear discharge coming out of her. Its been so long since I have helped a dog give birth. My vet also told me to let him know when she goes into labor so he can be ready if anything goes wrong. Even tho I have only had her for almost a month I love this little dog and don't want anything to happen to her. Any information you have would be helpful thank you.

  • My dog has a retained placenta?

    So my long haired chihuahua had a litter of 4 puppies yesterday morning she did great with the first three the last one she struggled with. the placenta of the 4th got stuck while she was pushing the puppy out I sat and waited to see if it would come out. I ran out of the room for about two minutes leaving my dog and her pups with my helper so they wouldn't be alone when I got back into the room my helper told me that she ( my dog) ate the placenta. Well I was feeling around on her tummy today just making sure everything was ok and I felt something odd it almost felt like there was another puppy in there. I took her to the vet right after I found it and he said it was a retained placenta. he gave her a shot to prevent infection and said that her body would break it down. He did not tell me how long it would take to break it down and now of course it is past office hours so I cant call. Does any one know how long it will take for her to break it down?
