She just had puppies in May and she is due again in October? That is really not good for her at all.
Why do you think I need to get her spayed after this??????The number in each litter can definitely vary a lot. I do think you should get her spayed after this, though.
I was keeping them apart, we have a finished basement, and I was trying to get her out, but again I was cooking breakfast on that sun. morning, just like i will today, but the bacon was burning and stopped for just a sec. to get the bacon out of the pan, went to look for her and there they was. I will just have to be more careful, I know it is my fault. I blame myself. But I do want to breed them from time to time. But NO, IBecause this is her 2nd pregnancy in a short amount of time and because you have an unneutered male. If you don't get her spayed, how will you make sure this doesn't happen again?
Thank you for the good advice to the question that I asked about, and not for going into all the other stuff. For dealing with the here and now. You know I'm just worried about getting her thru this birth. I just want to know if she might have more pups, See if she would go into labor, and have two pups, well quess what, I'm going to think she is done and over, but what if she would have more, and she has just quit her labor, and need medical attention. That is what I'm concern about right now!!!! Again, Thanks for the good advice!!!!!:wavey:Understand that even xraying on day 56 does not ensure an accurate count. My feeling is that there may be between 2 and 4 pups. I would wait till she whelps and once her labor stops take her then and have her xrayed to be sure there are no more pups still left.
And there is never any rhyme or reason for the number of pups from one litter to the next. There are too many factors that affect that number.
