Jokes on us!

What the heck do we do for a whelping box?????


Are these premies?

WTF????

Good thing you found out about the pregnancy what....about an hour or two
ago, or you'd be SO surprised by this. Cuz now you're all prepared, right?

Wow, you poor thing. Nothing like having a crapload of stuff thrust on you
all at once.

My friend who now has Max the PoopEater (he was returned, BTW) took in a dog
who was rail thin, but had a funky looking belly. The PetsMart vet said
she's loaded with worms. She was dewormed (yes, she was loaded) but no
change in appearance. I had jokingly said that if the vet hadn't seen her
already, I'd think she was pregnant. She came back one day from work to
find one puppy out, one more on the way.

The litter had 7 or 8 pups, of which she kept one. All the rest found good
homes. Her dog is now 4 years old.

Damn. The deworming didn't hurt the pups at all?

I really haven't dealt much with pregnant dogs. It seems like its really
hard for vets to tell when they're pregnant. I never knew thay'd have such
a tough time knowing that.

Damn, that's a shame, that he was returned.

Yeah, I didn't know that either. You'd think it would be obvious, but maybe
not.


I think I missed something. It *is* hard for vets to tell when dogs
are pregnant? I thought it was relatively easy to tell, certainly
after a couple of weeks when the pups can be palpated.

My friend is really funny. For a while there, it was 'Poopy face has GOT TO
go!' When he left, she missed the old guy.

No. I believe that breeders deworm the bitch half way through the
pregnancy.

We went to the vet about three weeks ago for shots. I didn't
specifically ask if she was pregnant then, so we didn't get an answer
to an unasked question.

We've been feeling her belly, but really did not feel anything except
it was quite firm.. The only clues to us were her big butt and
developed nipples. But when we walked into the vet, they didn't palpate
her and pronounce her pregnant and they couldn't tell by looking..

Of course, the vet had questions for us that we couldn't answer because
we didn't have posession of the dog.


Ah, thank god then. I had thought Vets could tell pretty easily as well,
but with this suprise pregnancy (I thought she had been seen since the
question arose, my mistake!) as well as Suja's story, I got worried.

Never dealt with preggeries in dogs....and Annie's coming of age and is as
yet unspayed. Was about to put pants and a chastity belt on her.
