I have adopted a rescue dog, Lilly, who was brought up from

I have adopted a rescue dog, Lilly, who was brought up from Mississippi and arrived today. this past Wednesday she received two heartworm injections. I brought her home about 6PM this evening. She postioned herself in a dog bed I purchased for her and hasn't moved a muscle. her appetite is good, but I have to put her dish right next to her so she only to move her head. The same is true of her water. Her nose is dry, and she has periods where her breathing is very rapid and shallow. I am worried about herJA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help Lilly. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Lilly?Customer: Prior to the shots her fosters parents say she was fine, she isn't an overly active dog . But loved to play, was house trained and a joy to be around. I have never seen a dog lay in one spot for over six hours.

I want your opinion! My breeder friend went to the vet

Hi:I want your opinion! My breeder friend went to the vet because her bitch was 69 days pregnant. She had an xray done a week ago. She was showing signs by digging 3 days ago then stopped. She was not in distress at all.(The bitch I mean). My friend was going crazy!My friend was afraid because she couldn't feel the babies. I asked my friend if she used a stethoscope to hear the heartbeats since she didn't see them move and thought they were dead. My friend doesn't hear very well so she said no. I asked her to have the vet check with a stethoscope. I know it's tricky to guess how many but I am able to easily hear the beats starting at around 7 weeks. The bitch was dialated.2 vets said you cannot hear the heartbeats with a stethoscope. The vet also said they can't use the oxy if they are not in labor. I thought you can if they are dialated!!! Please don't tell me the same thing ! So they did a C section and delivered 3 healthy pups.Questions: heartbeat with a steth?Oxy cannot be used if the bitch is not in labor but dialated??Inquiring minds need to know if we are dealing with quacks. You don't have to answer the last sentence. Haha
