SASH VETS - THE BEST SPECIALIST CARE FOR YOUR BEST MATE

 

Good Karma!

Karma came to SASH VetICU as an emergency around midnight one night recently.

She had been in labour and straining to pass a puppy for several hours. She had given birth to one healthy puppy earlier in the evening, then had passed a stillborn puppy, but had been straining since.

The team at SASH Vets set about helping Karma deliver the rest of her litter.

It is very important that whelping bitches pass a puppy every hour when they are actively straining, or only stop straining for a maximum of three hours between puppies. Failing to pass a puppy after one hour is usually dystocia – or difficulty whelping which usually requires some intervention.
