UPDATE-Amber is alright!

Hi again. Well Amber went to a new vet this afternoon with my Mom & this doctor said that Amber probably has a urinary infection or something bad happened to the puppies in her tummy. He was a young guy, probably not very experienced with pregnant dogs. He checked Amber's vulva area & said there's blood & it has already turned black. But we didn't see blood. It's brownish discharge. Normally, it should be clear but I don't know why Amber's is brownish. So my Mom then called up Amber's husband's owner & he told us not to panic too much. He's a very experienced breeder & he knows some vet stuff very well. He advised us to dab a tissue on her vulva area every hour & see whether it's clear. It's been clear so far & we checked three times already. Then he asked us if Amber is bloated like a goat or something like that. We said no. Amber's tummy looks normal, bigger than before but not exploding. Then we collected Amber's pee to see if it's bloody. Nope. It's yellowish like normal. So everything is ALL FINE! Phew! We really panicked like crazy after the vet said she might have an abortion because her discharge hasn't stopped. Amber's discharge started right after the mating. A bit too soon but I don't think there's anything wrong with her. I think we really over panicked. Well, everything is all well again. Amber's appetite is huge, she's still active(okay she walks slow nowadays but still has drive for her tennis balls), she's still her normal self except that she pants quite a bit now but not excessively. So, I'm sorry for all the panic guys! We just got really worried. I guess all owners should be if anything doesn't seem normal with their own pets or if their pets are in delicate condition like Amber right? We'll still keep checking her just in case anything should go wrong.

Amber doesn't seem right today & she's been having excessive discharge. I don't know what's wrong but we called up the vet & he said she may need to have an abortion if there's something wrong & our neighbor who their dog just gave birth a month back said it could possibly be a sack that has ruptured. All the vets we called are closed today because today's Sunday but our neighbor knows one that is still open till late afternoon. My Mom & her have gone. I'm at home taking care of the other two. I hope it's not bad news when she comes back. It'd be so devastating if it is. Please pray that is not bad news. Whatever it is, Amber's life is more important than the puppies. If there's anything wrong with her, she has to be saved.

Butchy and Snickers said...

Hey Amber,
Sounds like things are progressing normally for your pregnancy. Mama & Papa had their female German Shorthair Pointer bred one time years ago. She had 8 bootiful puppies. It was a great experience and one pup even went on to be show dog living in New York. You might start to refuse food or act differently, digging or scratching at rugs or things on the floor. You'll notice discharge from your nipples soon too. Right now you should be eating quite a bit, like 50 percent more than normal. We know you will be a great mother! We bet your family is very excited for you.
Luv & Wirey Hugs,
Butchy, Snickers, Ruby, Sylvester & Scuby

Hi Amber,
Sorry that we only just found out but hey, we are soooooooooo glad that you are ok. It's normal for the humans to panic... our mom is a worry-wart herself, so she totally understands. (you know ever since Hershey's diarrhea episode, she checks Hershey's poop condition all the time now.. I think she really should find a hobby!!)
Take care of yourself and your pups!

What a scary situation! We are glad that Amber is ok and back to her normal self.

Fenway said...

Thanks for giving Ms. Alpha guidance on how to teach me to walk the teeter the RIGHT way.

She's just about to take me out and do it again. I noticed that when we were on it yesterday, she stopped treating me when I jumped off an on. I learned the only way to get that tasty chicken was to get on at the beginning and walk to the very end.

Thanks again. We will start with the slow walks today and have her hold my collar so I understand how to do it!

Your pal,
Fenway

I realise we have commented earlier, but it is difficult to follow your blog at the moment because we use Firefox and Firefox is being a beast, and does not like linking to your blog, and I.E. takes so long to load..........

just wanted to know we are still interested and wishing all well for dear Amber, just getting pretty pissed off with Firefox..........

Hope things are getting better and Amber is ok.
