Avatar f tn The sooner she has another pet the better ..yes I think its normal to grieve a loss takes time maybe there has been a lot of talk about in in the family that has reinforced the feelings .I do not deal with grief of losing animals well, it took me 20 years till my kitty found me to have another. I think that she could use having a new pup in her life ..
Avatar n tn , and it happens in the exact manner in which you are losing your puppies. If you really want to pursue the issue, you can take the dead puppies to a vet and have necropsies done on them to determine the cause of death, but if it's Fading Puppy Syndrome the tests will probably be inconclusive. Have you checked to make sure the mother is producing milk?
Avatar m tn IF you knew for a fact you were not going to be bad-breeding in any way (ie breeding in weaknesses like bad hip scores, etc) IF you had definite and loving (and dog-wise) homes already for the possible puppies, with people you already knew well, and trusted implicitly, whom you knew for certain were both responsible and also able to provide financially for a dog for the rest of its life. IF you knew for certain those females were healthy enough to BE breed-b-i-t-c-h-e-s.
947190 tn?1286991297 I've been treated twice for chronic Hepatitis C. Since the onset of the first treatment, (February, 2004), I have been losing my teeth. They simply "break" apart and fall out of my mouth. There's no pain involved but, I now have only 1 1/2 teeth remaining in my mouth. None of my "Doctors" offer me any advice, help, direction. What is happening to me?????? (It's not just tooth loss either. Every body system is being affected).
Avatar f tn but there was 70% loss in one front tooth and 30% in the other. My laterals are genetically inclined to twist so my periodontist thought I might want four implants. I'd rather hold onto the laterals but need to know what the percents of bone loss are for a compromised tooth. I already know the one is going to have to be extracted. My hope is saving at least two or possible three of the others.
Avatar m tn How old was he when you got him? Did you take him to the vet when he was sick? What did he say?

Avatar m tn Are you sure there are more puppies? Sometimes there can be some time in between puppies but if she has been pushing this long you best get her to the vet. The puppy may be too large, dead or turned and can't make it through the birth canal. Your female may also need a Pit shot.
Avatar n tn Nif it is an infection, could be bad for the puppies. You should see a Vet. Mom may need antibiotics and puppies hand fed.
Avatar m tn Because he was so young, I would contact the breeder and let him or her know what happened because many breeders will stand by their puppies and will replace them in the event of an untimely death. If, however, you bought your puppy from a pet store or from a backyard breeder, there is probably nothing that can be done at this point. Pet store puppies and backyard breeder puppies, probably 99.
442658 tn?1563386491 And from the way you describe them, they are inguinal hernias, which are not all that common. Most hernias in puppies are umbilical hernias that appear as a little bubble where the umbililcal cord was attached, and they are caused at birth by the mother chewing the cord off too vigorously and too short. The chewing and pulling on the umbilical cord causes a tear in the wall and the hernia is formed.
Avatar m tn I've had braces at around age 27 when the surgeon had advised me that it may cause tooth loss at a later age. I am now 57 and it's been almost 30 years since I've last visited the dentist, since I had a general fear of the pain when going to the dentist. I now have purple gums and my tooth are loose and shaky at time to time. I suspect it may be from gum disease with a combination of the side effect for my late braces. I am a drinker and a smoker.
Avatar f tn t want anyone else to have to go through the nightmare that I have been through for the last three weeks doctoring sick puppies. I have probably lost over $15,000 in puppies and veterinary care alone. I have kept 4 of the vaccines, so if there is anyone out there that knows where I can get these tested, to prove that they are what caused the parvo, I would greatly appreciate hearing from you.
Avatar n tn Tooth pain is not always dental origin, although most dental pains do come from cavities and gum disease. Assuming there is no dental pathology identified by your dentist other than the offending tooth, the possible causes of thermeal sensitivy and aching are 1.occlusal trauma resulting from occlusal interference. 2. referred pain from myofascial trigger point pathology. 3. central nervous system dysfunction.
Avatar m tn I know that now is not the time to be petty or vindictive, however purebred puppies are not cheap, and any responsible breeder SHOULD have had a health guarantee on their puppies that should be honored in a case such as this.
Avatar f tn d hypothesize (1) something they are eating, rolling in, being bitten by? Do they go outside? Do they stay in the laundry room where they might get a little detergent or bleach? or (2) a hereditary problem? Did you use the same sire each time? If so, he and your ***** may each have a recessive gene for this--something that wouldn't show up in the adult parents because they are just carriers, but would affect about 1/4 of their pups.
Avatar f tn I have heard of nothing but problems in both litter box and "paper" training puppies. It literally TEACHES them it is okay to eliminate indoors - and that is counter to a main basic rule of house training. So I think you are exactly right and that is why you have the problem today. The breed did not do you any favors. I love Dr. Hetts recommendations. I think it will work if you are very consistent about it.
Avatar m tn Our garbage comes tomorrow luckily, but do I need to worry about any of them crawling around my back yard with the puppies, do I need to worry about them getting in my house. I am just kind of freaked out they are so grose. Help! thanks!
5915818 tn?1377748240 Wow, TEN, isn't that unusual, maybe a record? I don't know what Gruel is, but I assume that means the puppies are now taking in more than mother's milk - the mother must be exhausted. I'm not a puppy expert, but respond mostly in response the the large number of puppies. What is the normal (not pregnant weight of the mother? On outside, how cold is it? MN has got to be in general cold.
Avatar m tn I have two different breed puppies. The bigger puppy keeps pinning and standing over the litlte puppy then plays to rough and makes her whine. How do i get him to stop pinning her down and standing over her?
Avatar n tn People will always try to find things to pick at and always try to put there 2 cents in but I just learned to let it go in one ear and out the other.
4290325 tn?1356918391 My Shih Tzu should be having puppies in about 2 weeks and I have never had puppies before. She has had a few litters already but this will be first. When do I introduce the outside to the puppies and when d I start them on dog food. I inherited these dogs from my Mother-in-law. She was a breeder and then she passes away.
