Firstly, we are currently living abroad in Africa, and while the vets here have access to some decent medicine, their knowledge is dangerously limited, so we feel we need to take care of this on our own.
My dog is 50 days pregnant, and in the last couple days she has developed what we think is vulvar hyperplasia (diagnosis is from two vets in the States who saw a photo we sent to them). But we can't find any information on a pregnant dog having this problem, nor do we know what to do about whelping just around the corner with this major blockage.
Can anyone give us any practical advice to either help this go away before whelping, or find a way to birth the puppies with this blockage? Anything we can do?
This is her second litter, but we didn't own her then so we don't have much information about the first one. She's a purebred German Shepherd and we think she's a year and a half to two years old.
