need some advice for a friend about whelping chihuahua's
hi my friend just called me and told me her dog might be having puppies she has two chihuahua's and while she was waiting for her female to be fixed (long wait at the spay/neuter clinic) the male got her.
i told her she could be in for a c-section for sure and to have emergency numbers on hand as well as save up at least 3000.00 for it!
thank god her and her husband both work.
now she can't bring herself to still do the spay and abort the puppies (she wouldn't do it for herself either) so now the only question is how can i help her???
i have been at a birth before just not with a chihuahua so i kind have a idea of what goes on and how to help.
i have had to help the mom deliver a breech pup who got a little stuck and had to break the sac and tie the cord cause it wouldn't stop bleeding after she chewed it.
but chihuahua's scare me since sooooo much can happen!
i have told her to take her to the vet and have her examined in a few weeks so they can see how many and how big the pups are going to be and if she can deliver safely.
her female is 2 maybe 3lbs and the male is 3 lbs they are also both young she is 9-10 months (first heat my friend didn't know what to look for)
he is just over a year.
if she had of come to me i could have told her a bit of what to look for but i know i don't know everything that's why i am here.
i am going to try to be there when she goes into labor and i told her not to leave her alone the last two weeks but they both work so i might have to help she asked me to take her dogs but i am scared too do it alone.
the dogs also don't know me or my kids so i don't know how she will react once in labor.
someone please help im worried and i don't think she realizes yet what she got herself into!!!
how can i help her????
