Heeler Pregnancy

This forum is for dog lovers seeking everyday advice and suggestions on health-related issues. Remember, however, that advice on a public forum simply can't be a substitute for proper medical attention. Only your vet can say assuredly what is best for your dog.

It could be that she isnt going to have that many or they are still up in her ribs and havnt dropped yet.


Ok i have a question for you.... Why are you allowing her to have puppies when she is only a year old? That is way too young for a dog to be having puppies. Especially for a larger breed dog. There is no way that your dog has had all of the propery health testing yet. Im not sure if you aware or not but there are already enough unwanted and most of the time unhealthy pups born everyday. Why would you want to contribute to that?Im not trying to be mean or sound rude , but it bothers me when people try to breed there dog and abviously know nothing about breeding.
Im not the only one that will feel this way, so dont be surprised if others have opinions like this.

Oh thank goodness. Like i said im sorry if i sound rude. You see i help do alot of fostering and rescuing dogs. So it really breks my heart when people breed there dog for no reason with no knowledge on breeding or health screening. I applaud you for taking her to the vet and wanting to spay her after.applause
Alot of times the puppies will stay up in the ribs and wont drop into the stomach until a few days or so. Then go right into the birth canal. Good luck and hope all goes well.

So why wasn't either of your dogs spayed or neutered before this happened? Was this a planned litter?

Percy-

Glad to hear you are getting spayed after this litter...it significantly drops your risks for cancers!

I wouldn't worry too much about how "big" she is....it all depends on how many are in there, how big of a dog she is, how far into the pregnancy she really is, and since its her first litter she may only have a few pups...(I think you said five...) Im not sure how big these pups are when they are born but they might still be up further and maybe she hasn't dropped them down yet to start the delivery process. Good Luck! Glad to hear these cuties all have homes too! applause

I am glad you are planning to get her spayed, but she doesn't really look like a Blue Heeler. shrug

Hey, she could be almost 2 years old pups, remember, dogster shows the age at the last birthday, so for example up until today I was "1" year old, but today I turned 2, now I show that I am 2 years old on my page, but yesterday I was "1". Soooo if she is almost 2, she may not be as young as it seems when you look at the age.

Congrats sweetie on your litter, glad you are getting spayed after, being a pawrent is a lot of work, and really tolls on a dawgs body.

I agree with Jelly Bean. Let's not jump all over Percy's Mom here. Accidents happen sometimes - let's give her the benefit of the doubt It sounds very much like she's trying to be responsible by having her dog thoroughly checked by a vet. Remember - Dogster does not allow pack mentality.

Good luck with the litter! If the vet says she's fine, then don't worry yourself about it. hug

Best wishes for Mama & the pups wishes



Shadow,
She does look like a blue heeler, maybe not one you've seen before, but markings & even some color variation is common.
