Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
I am concerned that my girl might have Metritis. She had a very long and difficult delivery. She threw up yesterday 3 times, didn't really eat much. She has been fine so far today, not throwing up and has been eating. She whelped on 9/30. Puppies are 4 days old today. I have been raising German Shepherds for 8 years. I spoke to another breeder friend who had mentioned giving my girl Tylan 50, (which is labeled for cattle and swine) I wasn't sure the doseage and if the puppies would be affected.
She has bloody mucus discharge as well. I did give her a dose of long lasting penicillan after whelp and last night. No, this was not prescribed by my vet. Thank you.
Thank you for your response.
Can you please tell me if you think she might be developing Metritis? Would her symptoms worsen from yesterday? She seems to be fine today, she has not thrown up, she is eating good, feeding puppies, and active. I checked her gums and they seem to appear normal.
