My friend has a 10 months old, we were not aware she was in

my friend has a bitch 10 months old, we were not aware she was in heat until my Husky and her were locked together! We have heard nothing positive about her giving birth being it her first heat and still puppy herself. we are at around day 40 gestation, and have major concerns! The bitch is showing signs of pregnancy which from what ive seen seems normal, but the concerns are more geared to her birthing process and what to be aware of and how to know whether she needs c section or if can do the birth herself, or if anything positive can come of this litter or is it all bad? has there been any good results from such a young bitch giving birth

My dog is 9yrs old, she is dashhound & chiuauha mix.In the

My dog is 9yrs old, she is dashhound & chiuauha mix.In the last 6mths, she had her first litter of pups.Good delivery,had 6,only4 lived to be strong and healthy. She has endured some trauma in the past 2 or 3 yrs, the loss of her master that had her from birth. that spoiled her &treated her like his child a very unhealthy diet of a cheese burger a day, and candy (chocolate m&m's). I took her over when the master's wife passed away. When she came to live with myself & a 16mth male chihuahua the father of her pups. Sorry about the long drawn out story, I think it might help with the diagnosis of her problems. When Brandy became a member of my family I fed her the same thing as her mate PingPing and that was and is Primal (beef,pork,lamb,&chicken)a differant flavor a week,for a month. With no [email protected] Thats what her diet consist of now. Okay, these are her systems to what is going on with her now, and when she came to live w/pingping and I. There was scars where she had a blistery rash that she chewed the hair and skin off her body. Also, her right eye was infected w/a red raw ring around it.For about a month straight Ping would lick her eye until it healed up along with the blisters. She no longer had ANY booboos on her body what so-ever. She was happy and healthy. Then she went into heat,they mated she had no signs of ANY [email protected], jUST being pregant and happy.I could actually see the happiness she felt for her life that she had with her new family Ping and I. She had her puppies 6 months ago,Sadly 2 months ago my ex husband takes Ping to pick&pull in oakland(junkyard)w/out a leash and he was stolen.Brandy went into morning she won't eat unless she's hand fed. About a month ago ALL the problems she had before are back 100x worse she is now,showing raw skin from [email protected] rash/mange/hotspots rash???. She has chewed quarter size or bigger spots out of her body parts back,legs,chest all over her. As I sit here and cry for her, I took her to a vet,but I was thrown out of the office because, I attempted to tell her brandies health history. I know that is very important to the daignoises of the systems. I feel from everything I've told you that she is so sad that she's self mutaliting herself from a broken heart. When Ping was here w/her they would wrestle, walk around together & smell of things. She just sleeps and mopes.I took her to the emergency vet in Berkeley,Ca. the veterinarian told me it was fleas. I said you're a idiot, and if you would just take time, Anyways I don't want to go back there.So let me say before hand Thank you for the time & consideration that is applied to this matter. Sincerly, Melyssa Zajac

I have a small dog rescue and recently we pulled a beagle

I have a small dog rescue and recently we pulled a beagle boy who has a Grade 5 heart murmur. He had a chest x-ray today and the vet says it shows his heart is enlarged but there is no fluid in his chest cavity. He is also heart worm negative. Just curious what could cause this, and if it is a treatable condition.
