Calling all lovers of small breeds.....

What kind of special whelping problems does your small breed have?

My breed is pugs. Since they have no nose and a fat head, many times they need a C-section at whelping time. I have been super lucky by picking large boned (and hipped) girls to breed. {knock on wood} Never needed a c-section.

Is this for breeders or just for people who love small breeds?

I wasn't sure as the questions were geared towards breeders and not the average owner.


I have a 1 yr old Mini Pin as you can see and she is a little she-devil.

[left]i have always felt it was ideal to have two momas welp around the same time. i have never had a problem before but this time it is paying off, first mama is weak, i am feeding her sugar water and goats milk by syringe, she is eating very little, gave her half cc calcium injection as per advice of vet, and my other mom has taken on 3 of her babys with 3 of her own, so that leaves the sick mama with only 3 to worry about while i nurse her along, wish me luck. first time in 35 years with dachshunds i have ran into this kind of trouble. she is still liking her walks and perks up and runs around when i take her out, so i think its a matter of extra tlc for her for a while and spay after she is well. any advice apreciated,

Yes Dachie good thing I have more than one right now . The Puppies are not going to be able to nurse from the Pug I took in so when she whelps I am going to take her puppies and spread them around .
I have talked to my Vet more about this Pug than I believe any animal I have ever had sick . But I have never had one of mine have mange and yeast, staff .

Want to thank every one who showed concern for her Vet gave her free meds. And I got really good advice from Mcauley and Mouse .

Maybe mother nature cycles the girls close for that very reason! I wish you well. 35 yrs of experience! Talk to me! I need your knowledge! I have only been breeding dogs for 6 yrs. My hubs has irish setter experience from years ago and that helps some.

How is she doing today? I think about her alot and wish you well with her progress. I know how hard you are trying. Your vet must really have confidence in you to help like this and ASK you to take her on. It will be a blessing if some of the pups survive and can be sold to help with the expenses...none of us have an unlimited supply of money laying around just to do good....

I would be very concerned about a uterine infection. If you are not monitoring temp twice daily, I would start. I would also want a blood panel, a good palpation, and maybe even an ultrasound on a bitch who was hving these issues post whelping.

Good advice....and this may sound weird...but check for smell. When they have a uterine infection the smell is horrid!

My Vet has watched me try and save 6 strays that have come to my place in the last year and a half I have lost 2 both had the same problems . I have been trying to find the breeder in my area who is dumping these dogs and god help them when I do . I usually don't talk about my little throw a ways just plug along and try and pay it forward . My Dad all ways said he couldn't stand to hear people bragg about look at me look what good things I am doing . He all ways said they were not doing good from the heart but just trying to prove they were better than they were. guess it rubbed off I get so sick of hearing people bragg about how they save this save that .
I was just between a rock and a hard spot with this girl , I have never dealt with problems as bad as she has and wanted advice .

I have a Miniature Dachshund and they are my "breed of choice" so to speak. I cannot answer any whelping/birthing questions however, because I do not breed and have limited knowledge in that area. Dachshund breeding outside the hands of dedicated professionals frightens me, so my guy is altered despite before ending up in a rescue he sired who knows how many litters. With PRA nonetheless. Sad

pra is one of the first things that must be tested on dachshunds, many like to blame the pra on the english creams, but your chocolate does not look cream, if he is positive for pra, i hope he was not bred to another pra carrier. eye problems nees to be addressed before a breeding is ever concidered.

If? He is positive for PRA, which is why I said he has PRA. I know all this and was simply complaining about it. I did not purchase him from a breeder and did not personally breed him.

i did not think you bred him, i assumed he was a rescue from the nasty bite thread, but you also mentioned former owner had bred him, i wonder where his pups are and if there in someones breeding program. that is why testing is so important. im sorry if you thought i was being a big mouth, i did not mean to be, i just want every one to know about pra, and mor than you and i read this forum. sorry

Yeah, unfortunately he was a stud dog for who knows how many litters at least that is what his breeder informed me when I emailed her website after the shelter gave me his AKC papers. She also offered to sell me his sister (which I expressed no interest in- just wanted her to know I had one of her dogs and he was safe) and informed me that the father was also blind. Sigh.
