So my partner and I have rescued a pregnant female from death by getting put to sleep by her own because she was pregnant.
We got her at about 56-58days and had her to vet which she had an ultrasound and xray to see how many pups there (4 possibly maybe just 3)
The vet has told me to ring anytime I have a question but I don't really want to disturb them because I know they are busy and it's probably a question that can be answered elsewhere.
I have had days of reading on the internet but alot seems to be conflicting from one site to another.
We set up here 'den' in the spare bathroom in the shower. The door is always open for her. I have removed all the blankets and towels as the vet told me to because pups often die getting tangled in them.
So she only has newspaper now.
This morning when I went in to see her because she hadn't come and woke me up I noticed that she had diarrhea in her bed.
Since we have had her she has never had an accident inside let alone in her bed.
I also noticed yesterday that she pee'd in there too and again this morning. I'm aussing this is because her bladder maybe getting a little pressure put on it because of the pups.
But the diarrhea I'm confussed about she hasn't had it since we've had her and we've been using the samepuppy food her previous owner did.
Could this be a sign?? Today is her EDD acording to vet so she's about 63-65 days.
I know that after the pups are born Mum and babies need to see the vet no more than 12hrs later. They also need to be wormed ect.
I have a temp app made for her for 68-70 days incase the pups aren't here. *crossing fingers* they will be.
I have spoken to the RSPCA regarding this and they are looking into it as I know her previous home has other dogs who are de-sexed.
I'm not into the taking the temp thing, the vet offered to show me what to do but I declined. She wasn't comfortable with the vet doing it so I don't really feel comfortable doing it at home.
She will be getting de-sexed when the pups are in their new homes.
Sorry for the long question, I appreciate any help or information you can give.
