PREGNANCY CONFIRMATION

 

Ultrasound

Confirmation of pregnancy is extremely important. Our veterinarians recommended scheduling an appointment for ultrasound 28 to 35 days from the first breeding. Ultrasounds cannot accurately count the number of pups a bitch is carrying but can confirm pregnancy and monitor heartbeats. At this appointment you can discuss with the veterinarian any diet changes or supplements recommended for pregnant bitches.

Digital X-Ray

If expecting a natural delivery our veterinarians recommend scheduling an X-Ray appointment. We recommend scheduling this appointment between days 56 – 60 from the 1st breeding. This allows for a better count of puppies due to the amount of calcification. Although with a large litter it is difficult to give an accurate count. Another advantage to a pre-whelp x-ray is giving the veterinarian the opportunity to compare the skull size to the width of the dam’s pelvis. If the doctor determines the dam is not a suitable candidate for a natural whelp the doctor will discuss c-section options.

If your bitch is pregnant and in distress please contact our office immediately (626) 796-8387.

Testimonial

Have been taking my cats to RCVH for years. The Vets and office staff have always been great. My current Vet Dr. Brickman is exceptional: she took over from my previous Vet who moved away. She is very patient and listens to my concerns regarding my elderly male cat. She is a real professional.
