I need help PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
« on: June 02, 2007, 06:05:38 am »
It is has been so long since I have been able to be on but i need my friends help.  I am watching my best friends American Bulldog who is 64 days pregnant.  They took her to the vet and he said that it would be another 5 days before she had them.  Well we are going through a tropical depression and all of a sudden she is going into labor.  Is this normal for this pressure to effect pregnant dogs i know pregnant women but i didnt know dogs!!!!!!!!!!

I'm sorry I don't know anything about having puppies - I just wanted you to know I will be thinking of you during this stressful time (tropical depression and pups)!!

Best of luck - I also think Mama dog will know what to do!!

Thank you everyone for your thoughts.  Well i would like to say I successfully delivered 10 beautiful american bulldog puppies.  6 boys and 4 girls I am very glad i was there.  The first pup got stuck and i had to pull it out and then the mama really freaked out and ran from the puppy.  She was shaking and was in the corner not wanting to come near the puppy.  finnally after having the 4th puppy she finnaly calmed down and started acting like a good mommy.  Now her and the pups are fine and i will send pictures later but just wanted to let everyone know they are fine.  Special thanks to holly who really helped out by knowing you were there.  ;D

i am glad you were there to, and wow, i cant believe your freind was not there for her!
i would never in a million years trust anyone with my pregnant girl during delivery, let alone dump it on them.
not saying this is the case, but, wow!
i am glad you did not have a disaster, many times things can go wrong.
i am sure that she was nervous becouse it was not her home, nor her mom whome she prolly was trusting to be there with her thru this.
what a stressful time for her.
now you need to keep track of her temp daily to make sure she is not getting an infection.
did you xray her to make sure all pups were out?
that is standard proceedure.
also make sure that the pups rotate on the nipples, the rear ones are the fullest so the smallest pups should go back on them.
you have a lot of responsibility on your shoulders, hopefully your friend returns soon to help you out.
