I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on Spunkey, please?

You appear to be describing normal behavior of a breeding stud - exhaustion and inappetence are common if breeding is allowed to go on unabated.

R u really there plse very very important. An 8wk old
Not sure exactly how long ago this developed. Id say definitely in the pat 3-4 days during a feeding bc Ive been preparing them to begin eatting on their own that I noticed a lump on belly of 2nd born of 3 puppies. Im really really worried that this is something serious. Its not located where her belly botton is. This more in groin definitely groin on her left side right next to her private area. The pups have not yet been wormed or shots yet. Will be taking them ASAP for their well ness check. My vet had told me b4 mother gave birth that wasnt nessesary to bring them for check up right after birth unless there was a prob I believe she had said when they became 8wks old. I hope im correct. My husband and i both were personally there the entire time Mom was in labor start to finish. I made sure i looked each of them over and i dont recall this lump at all. Like i said im pretty confident it has developed most recent. I really dont think its of any color but im not a Dr.Also not sure if im seeing a vein or a red line which im scared to death wheather or not blood poisoning. She had a wonderful appitite this am and appears to be playful with her sibblings. Very very scared. … read more
