    • Tips will be coming home later this arvo she is fine just recovering now was 5 pups so that's 12 all up

      • Many vets are not repro experts either unfortunately, and would be looking this stuff up. Here is a chart showing weight of pup vs how much they need in a day. Note 1cc = 1ml. Scroll down a little for chart.

              • Thanks for link
                And yes they will all be inside
                I feel like I'm getting a little judgement on here now....
                But really I don't mind our dog is going to be ok and all pups are alive and feeding
                I feel we have done all we can for her and had already made the choice to spay her after the 3rd pup toke so long to b born...

                  • Pretty sure the pup on the grass was there because Mum birthed there

                    Comment


                    • Yes birthed on grass after vet told us to let her do whatever she wanted cause labour had paused...

                        • I'm only concerned Liss as you seem to have plunged into this with so little preparation, so there is so many unknowns in the situation. Makes it hard to advise.

                          There's no point being judgemental here. I'm just trying to think of any other little things that you might need to know to make the next few weeks a bit easier.

                              Am so glad the surgery was successful. It's going to be very full on looking after 12 pups.. Will the surgery affect Tips milk at all ?
