thankyou all i have printed out all of the pages i am going to need from that site the vet that the organisation sent me to is just down the road from me so if anything doesnt look right i will be able to get her there immediatly
the vet did mention mange mites and has put a product on her that is safe for pregnant and lactating dogs and puppies to prevent and get rid of pest she was infested with fleas when she first came to us but she has had this product on for the last to weeks and there isnt one flea or pest left on her she was eating in that house but it was not them feeding her the neighbours to the house would occasionally throw something to her and when they did let her outside she would eat anything she could find for the last 2 weeks she has science diets puppy food and as much as she wants she is gaining weight (alot of it is just pregnancy weight) yesterday i saw the first signs of milk wich is good news as we were worried that due to the lack of nutritional food that she might not get any and that i would have to bottle feed the pups a
couple of days before she delivers the vet wants to check the quality of her milk and then again the day after they are all born
she started nesting behavour last night but it wasnt anything serious she just pulled the blankets and towels out of the whelping box put them on the bed and went to sleep i am hoping she changes her mind about the whelping box before she goes into labour
she has another vet examination today
i have decided to do the x ray at first i wasnt so sure as people were telling me that it could make her or the puppies sick but it seems that many breeder do it and they have healthy pups and as it is being advised by the vets i will do it

i will let you all know how she goes over the next few days today she has a surprising amount of energy and is trying to play which is showing that she is feeling more and more comfortable with me everyday

i have another question which i will ask the vet today but i will also ask you all seens you have been through this with your own dogs
with dogs a couple of days before they deliver is there colostrum a yellow colour her milk is just a milky colour now but i know with humans that a yellow colour is a good sign to say that delivery is only a few days away is it the same with dogs

Everyone has given you the best advice, all i can say is you must be a really great person to take on a dog on and give it all the care it needs, well done and I wish there was more people like you around

if you could see her you wouldnt have said no either she has these eyes that just pull you in she is such a sweet girl and i am also a sucker for a mistreated dog it makes me so mad and also make me want to take care of them especially when they have lost there trust because of some cruel hearted person and nice to see them trusting again

the poor girl is having a tuff day today it is very hot where i am and she is very big and uncomfortable because of the heat she doesnt want to eat i have been coaxing here to eat with some cold chicken breast but even that she is kinda rejecting i know when their in labour they dont eat but i saw the vet yesterday and he said she still has atleast 10 days to go he said not to worry if she doesnt want to eat because she is very large and it is very hot but i dont think with this dog she should stop eating im worried she might not produce enough milk i have some puppy fomular and the vet said if she cant feed them then to feed them with an eye dropper but i read somewhere on here that its bad to do that because of the air bubbles in the dropper is that true and what would be the best thing i could coax her to eat that has enough calcium in it to help with her milk

I hope she'll feed them well and you don't have to. As long as the pups gain, leave it up to the Mom. I'd start taking her temp once a day just in case.
