very unusal signs with my 9 yr dog that just had puppies
my dog is 9 years old and just had puppies this morning I have seen every litter born except this one I missed. she had 8 puppies that I know of but one passed away. I noticed that her collar sized decreased by half the size it used to be I also noticed that she is panting a lot and will only drink water she wont eat. then I started noticing that she wasn't bleeding heavily like usual after delivering so I made her get up and walk outside to go potty and noticed her pee is clear but she is leaking a dark green substance from her vaginal area. this is one of her smallest litters usually she has at 13-18 puppies I am a little worried something is wrong. any suggestions?
I won'tvenen ask why you ate letting this dog be bred.
She definitely needs to see the Vet.. You won't even know if she passed a placenta with each pup. She may need to be checked or an X-ray done to see if there are any retained pups and she may need a Pit shot to clean ER out and antibiotics. If you see this before you go, hoping you will, please ask the vet check her milk for any sign of infection.
