Default When should puppies be due?

I was reading through the last threads I have made on Missy and seen she went out of season on 7-17 or 7-18 and was wondering how long until the puppies should be due?
I know she is HUGE-A-MONGOUS. [[Word I like to use ]]

Just trying to keep up with the days, so I know when to expect them.

63 days from the date of the first breeding is the average.

If you don't know when she was bred first or last, it's going to be a guessing game. I'd guess somewhere around the 15th of September according to the average.

Thankyou applesmom.
I will be watching her REALLY closely between the 10th and 20th of September, just to be sure.
And I do believe this is her VERY first breeding ever.

Didn't you say she's under a year old? If that's true, there's a much greater possibility of complications ranging from problems during whelping, not having enough milk to feed them, to Missy rejecting the puppies completely or just not knowing how to take care of them.

Kelisebug you're not doing yourself, Missy or her pups a favor by insisting on tackling this on your own. There's a very real possibility It could wind up costing the life of Missy and the pups. You need some adult help with this situation. At the very least, please talk to the owners and see if you can get them involved in Missy's care. They need to be aware that she needs to have these puppies inside in a clean environment and that she will need to be examined by a vet and have a clean out shot within 24 hours after the puppies are born.

If you think it's tough now; if you have to sit by and watch these puppies die one by one while you're powerless to provide what they need, it's going to break your heart. It's very rare that an entire litter of puppies born out in the elements will survive. Are you prepared to accept that knowing that it didn't have to be this way?

If her owners won't take responsibility, then Missy and her unborn pups need to go to a shelter where they'll be properly taken care of by people with much more experience and a vet close by in case of complications.

This isn't fun and games and oh goodie I get to play with puppies. It's a matter of life and possibly even preventing unnecessary deaths!

Seeing that she gets to a shelter will be much easier on you and most certainly much better for Missy and the pups.

I am sorry but I just do not understand why females are not spayed at six months no later. It is such a pity to let them go and end up having to get pregnant and maybe deliver a huge litter that could kill the female and the puppies. Let the insides develope normally without a litter of puppies in her belly.!!

Spay and neuter dogs soon as possible to avoid this and unwanted litters that end up in shelters or on the roads dead.!!! A female can start to whelp as early as 5 days if litter is large or she is going to have a tough time. I have had them go very early and the litter was ok, but I am there to help with alot of experience in whelping and fixing pups born with complications. Having a vet on call is necessary as younger dogs going to have pups is most likely going to need vet help.

The normal gestation time carrying puppies is 63 to 65 days from first tie with a male. It is highly important to count the drip days from the first speck to day 10 and on till dog goes into the breeding week at end of cycle.

Having her been wormed good before breeding shot to date and being very prepared for pups is highly imparative. Having towels, scale, bands for pups, iodine, suction cup, notepad and pen for weight of pups, clock for time of each arrival, whelp box with pig rails up and papers to remove after each delivery to keep it dry and clean as possible till done. Then clean up with bleach water and place down a FLAT mat so pups cannot get in a crease and die. Keeping puppies as warm as 98 degrees if highly important as the number one killer of them is hypathermia even in hot summer, they cannot regulate their own bodies for two weeks for heat or cold to shiver or pant. It is best to be warmer than cool as a draft can kill one quickly.

My Step daughter has been trying to get her lab spayed, I told her she can be done under 6 months, the vet told her no, wait til her first season, despite knowing she has a 10months old male boxer in the house, I told her get a new vet she did and is booked to be spayed at the end of august, they can be done a whole lot cheaper if you are not working, the vets need to lighten up and spay these dogs when people ask them to, unless it compromises the bitches health, imagine the bitch coming into heat, with a male in the house and no plans of puppies i don't know what the vet is on, as we just found out he runs the practice he said no from, yet works from the one she will be spayed from,(only knew from monday) why the double standards.

I hope things with this bitch dont end up going horribly wrong for her sake, and yours.

I have had females done at 3 months, no problem in fact my english bulldog had the best bladder control to her last breath. she was spayed at 3 months, never bothered her. The old wives tale of waiting on a heat is nonsense, get them fixed now!!! Healthier, safer and the best, easiest way to keep your pet under control.
