|"Jewel, they CAN get swollen bellys with false pregnancy... I have had that happen several times."
Ain't that the truth
Did breed Flo the one time in my thankfully short lived and premature breeder career, for while the stud's owner was sending me potential applicants, I was busy living in the terrorizing (and under contemplated) premise of placing puppies with strangers and sorely regretting my decision.
At any rate, not only did she look pregnant enough for me to buy it, but the vet thought she was preggers also and so apparently did SHE as she gutted by daybed into a nest.
Two days later, I arrived home and she was laying in a pool of....sorry, there's no nice way to say this...pool of pus and she was in full blown pyometra. We rushed her in for surgery but her breathing was erratic under anesthesia so she went to a center where she was placed on extensive antibiotic therapy.
QUITE an adventure, but there was no one in the mix....not the breeder, not me the owner, not the vet, not Flo herself, who didn't believe a pregnancy was going on. But in the end, I was quite elated that she wasn't!
