Update 27 - 10 -10

Came down this morning to see fluid all over the kitchen floor BUT velvet wasn’t in labour and her temperature was normal. Decided the best thing was to take her to the vets given the spotting earlier. When I got her there we suddenly had a bag appear with a yellowish discharge coming out of her that did not look the normal puppy bag given the very red veins in it.

See video clip of it - Later explained by the vet as being caused by the very bad uterus infection.

The vet at one point thought it was her bladder coming out of her urethra which on closer examination he decided must be a puppy bag but still no labour. C-section later and it turns out she had a really bad uterus infection which was so bad it prevented contractions and was in effect causing her to abort them all at this late stage (DAY 58) fortunately all six pups are out and so far doing ok although she doesn’t as yet appear to have full milk so we are topping up with Welpi just enough to keep them going but not enough to stop them still trying to get milk from Mum.

4 x bitches – 2 x dogs – (3 chocolate dapples and 3 chocolates)

The one thing that gets me in all this is I’ve had Velvet to the vets three times for them to check her out so you would have thought this would have been spotted much sooner. Fortunately I got her to the vets very quickly other wise we would have lost all the pups! It was very much initially what you would expect with a normal pregnancy so you could easily have expected the pups to have come out as normal during the day just I had a gut feel it was very wrong.

(Day 6 - It's been hard work with little sleep as two pups have had to be hand fed and on more than one occasion we thought we were going to loose them as their body weights were down to 50% of birth weight but finally we look to getting there in that they are all now feeding from mum)

(Day 1 - new pups after c-section)

Update 27/10/10: Came down Wednesday morning to see fluid all over the kitchen floor BUT velvet wasn’t in labour and her temperature was normal. Decided the best thing was to take her to the vets given the spotting earlier in her pregnancy. C-section later and it turns out she had a really bad uterus infection which was so bad it prevented contractions and was in effect causing her to abort them all at this late stage (DAY 58 – 6 days early) fortunately all six pups are out and are so far doing ok 24hrs later. WE DO NOT KNOW yet if they will all survive given they are in effect premature so please watch this space.
