    Default I Rescued a Pregnant GSP

    Hi everyone,

    I am new to the forum and a new dog owner. I have recently adopted a German Shorthaired Pointer off people who said they just couldn't take care of her properly. Her name is Cleo.

    I know she has been neglected and abused. But she is a beautiful dog and has a lovely nature.

    She is pregnant. And she is due in a week.
    When I adopted her, I wasn't expecting to adopt an extra nine. But I am very glad to think that I have saved these puppies and the experience will be unforgettable.
    I can feel them kicking and it's all very exciting.
    She has been vet checked, and is on a very healthy stable diet.

    I have set up a whelping box, but I am very anxious about the actual whelping part. I have been doing a lot of research but specific advice would be very much appreciated.


    Thanks

    Thank you so much.
    I've been reading like crazy and a few articles I've read have been very daunting with things you should prepare for, and what can go wrong.
    All the information is getting overwhelming, it sounds like there's a lot involved... Like dental floss, and scales, and betadine, and vaseline, and baby syringes, etc...
    My vet did say that she should just do it naturally, but I'm not prepared for if something goes wrong...
    Luckily, the vet is literally only one block away though.

    Good on you for giving her a chance.
    Don't be too worried jusy prepared.
    Talk to your vet about after hour numbers & what to look for.
    I would start taking her temp as it will drop & then rise just before birthing.
    Dogs make everyday life enjoyable...........
