needs to prepare all necessary in advance. Rodzal has to be warm, aired and quiet and also convenient for the person — you should spend a lot of time there. One week prior to estimated childbirth move to a bough in "rodzat", it has to get used to this place.

What to prepare for a genus of a dog in house conditions

Prepare a box for newborns (on sale there are special plank beds). Also it is required to you:
  • infrared heating lamp,
  • disposable pelenka,
  • a hot-water bottle or a plastic bottle with warm water,
  • cotton wool,
  • cotton rags,
  • towels (pieces 8),

you Hold in a visible place the phone number of the veterinarian. One day before the event the dog refuses food, body temperature falls. A bough becomes uneasy, tears a laying — does a nest.
needs to watch closely a dog that she did not get into a hard-to-reach spot.
When begin childbirth, call the veterinarian — warn that it was in touch just in case. Put on a collar on a bough. Your task — to sit quietly and not to fuss is farther. You can practice yoga or meditate.

Stages of genus of a dog

about 12 — 24 hours
the Neck of the uterus relaxes and extends, there is a slime, fights without attempts, temperature is lowered
the Dog worries, often changes the position, looks back at a stomach, breath frequent, vomiting is admissible
it is normal of
till 24 o'clock
amniotic waters Depart, temperature is normalized, belly walls are strained, fights will mix up with attempts, patrimonial ways leave puppies
the Dog ceases to worry, often breathes, lays down in one place, makes an effort, after an exit of a fruit breaks off an afterbirth and licks a puppy
the afterbirth or places or a children's part of a placenta Leaves. Usually, after the puppy birth, in 10 — 15 minutes there is an afterbirth. Sometimes leave a little, after 2 — 3 puppies.
of the Bough seeks to eat all afterbirths, do not allow it to do. One-two — the maximum, differently can be intoxication (a diarrhea, vomiting).
the Puppy is born in "packing" — a transparent film which is called an afterbirth. Usually a bough breaks off it and eats. Be not frightened — it is normal, she will not eat a puppy.
do not resolve a bough there is an afterbirth if it greenish-black color with a putrefactive smell.
you Watch quantity of afterbirths, them had to as much how many and puppies. The afterbirth can sometimes remain inside and to leave only at the end of childbirth.
If at least one afterbirth remains inside, it is fraught for boughs inflammation (metritis). If you are not sure that all afterbirths left, surely bring a dog to ultrasonography.
the Puppy can be born when he costs a bough. It falls to the ground, but, as a rule, it is harmless. Intervention is justified only if mother shocked, ignores cubs or attacks them. In this case call the experienced manufacturer — he will prompt what to do.

Something went wrong …

If mother tries to attack puppies, muzzle on it and you carry away each puppy out of audibility limits. Delete a film, wipe a puppy with a towel, eliminate slime from a mouth and nostrils with the syringe. If the puppy does not breathe, try to pound him a towel.
Sometimes is required artificial respiration — carefully inhale air in a mouth and a nose of a puppy (as though you blow on candle fire that it waved). The thorax has to rise at the same time. Repeat a breath each 2 — 3 seconds until the puppy begins to breathe.
Place puppies in a cardboard box with a hot-water bottle. You watch that kids did not burn.
Remember that a dog in state of shock, talk to her tenderly, calm.
After the end of childbirth when a bough has a rest and will drink milk with glucose, try to present it puppies once again. Put mother sideways, hold the head, stroke. The second person can bring to a nipple of a puppy. If bough accepted a puppy, it is possible to enclose the others accurately. But continue to hold it.
Even if everything is good
, it is not necessary to relax. After feeding clean puppies, wash up them the back. If the dog quietly licks puppies, you can choose: to risk to leave them on its care or to carry away a box and to return to the following feeding.
Sometimes during the first hours after the delivery because of shock of a bough ignores puppies: refuses to feed, wash or remain with them. Here the bough should force to feed puppies, but you should wash kids. Massage (clockwise) area of a crotch the cotton wool moistened in warm water to stimulate allocation a calla and urine as newborn puppies are not able to defecate.
Sometimes a bough tries to kill posterity. But it is better all the same to force it to feed puppies. Muzzle on it and record in lying situation. One person can hold it, and the second to put puppies to nipples. Artificial feeding will not replace maternal milk therefore use it only as the last resort.
Puppies need full feeding each 2 hours.
As a rule, sooner or later a bough nevertheless accepts puppies. Cases when hatred is resistant, are extremely rare.
Caution: Whatever it happened even if bough will eat all kids, do not accuse it. The birth of puppies was your idea, and you forced to give rise to a bough. She does not understand that she does, hormonal failures and shock force it to behave in the way absolutely unusual for it.
