Hi JaCustomer,

Welcome to Just Answer. My name is Jane. I have been involved professionally with dogs in the healthcare and behavioral fields for over 20 years. I’ve worked as a Vet Assistant and Behaviorist and have extensive experience in dog reproduction, as a breeder, for even longer than that.. Canine behavioral issues and training are also my specialties. It will be my pleasure to work with you today.

As I mentioned above, I've been breeding for 20+ years. I have only had Oxytocin administered once when we though the x-ray showed a retained pup. It turned out that was not the case but a pup in the stomach that had been swallowed whole. I am not a high volume breeder but average 1-2 litters a year with the average litter size being 9-12 pups. My females all have gotten more than enough milk to support their pups and it has come in pretty quickly. None has ever had a problem with voiding their uterus of the fluids since the nursing action of the pups naturally leads to uterine contractions and voiding.

At this point since you have time before she delivers, I'd get in to see your vet around week 7 and ask about him supplying you with it if he feels she might need it. In the majority of cases, it is not needed.

I hope I've given you great service. If so, I'd appreciate a 5 star rating. The rating should be based on my answer and not any site issue. Experts are not compensated until a rating is done. If you have any other questions at all, please reply here and I'll be happy to follow up with you even after you have rated. .
