The Countdown

Posted by Pat on April 22, 2021 at 2:10 AM

Today, April 21, was the big day to do the first puppy count!


Why? Well it helps us to know how many pups to expect on whelping day. If there are fewer than four, then we might opt for a pre-planned c-section as some or all of the pups might be too big for natural birthing. If it is more than ten, then we might also plan for a c-section as a very large litter can lead to complications with uterine inertia. 


So how many do you count? 


The vet thinks 8 or 9. You need to count skulls and backbones. So that is right in the ballpark for a good natural birth.  See you back in two weeks, when we hope to show you each of these pups out in the real world.
