I agree with trond's comment: Let the dog decide. Pretty much all her behavior during the pregnancy will be instinct based. If there are things she shouldn't do, she'll "know" that. If there's something that hurts or is uncomfortable, she'll most likely avoid it or at least show clear signs of discomfort. This doesn't mean you can't help the dog is make ...

Hmmm, it is a little diifcult without a picture to really determine that your goldish is pregnant or not... but if it seems like it's belly is getting big, then it might be. If your goldfish is getting big overall in length and height, etc. that is natural since comet goldfish do end up getting pretty big! I recommend taking a read here for best practices in ...

The cat should not be too young Even if starting to call is a sign that it is possible for a cat to get pregnant, it is not the best to start so soon. In a german breeding club there is a rule that the maiden queen has to be at least 10 month old, or 9 if a veterinarian has given their ok. http://www.evbl.net/zuchtrichtlinien.htm I found a homepage of a ...

The average cat's gestation period is 64 days. How long has this been an issue, and how rapidly has it been changing? If in doubt, you should get the cat to a vet for a checkup. The cat might be pregnant, fat, or sick, and a vet can determine which and what should be done about it if anything. "You might notice subtle indications of pregnancy after the ...

Look at Opisthoma of the scorpion. See the ventral (meaning belly side) and the dorsal (meaning upper side or back side). On both sides there is a series of carapace, meaning hard shell. The one on the ventral side is called sternite and the one on the dorsal side is called tergite. There are about 7 carapace joined one after another. They are joined by a ...

this is normal you probably feed flake food and this do often have multiple colors,this is a trick the producer uses to make you buy it so it is not different content in the flake food it is the same content in the food only the coloring differs. the coloring is useless for the fish and is not absorbed by the fish so it passes into the poop. when the spot ...

I always let pregnant queens eat as much as they like. You want a healthy well fed queen and fat little kittens. Some cats will overeat and start to become obese but this is less of a risk with outdoor cats as they they get more exercise and typically have intestinal parasites. Also it is much better to have a slightly overweight queen Vs. a malnourished ...

I have searched the internet for a while and could not find information about "late comers" or "double litters". So I have to think, there is nothing common like this. I have found some information about bradytocia, which means the muscles to bring the babies out of the mothers body do not work well or with enough power. This can be the reason for death ...

Firstly I would get her Vet checked as it may be a medical problem, research calcium supplement for dogs during birth. I would also consider not breeding her again if she has it in her to kill/eat the pups. It can be a hereditary trait, if you are going to do it again seriously do some research on calcium supplementing a whelping bitch, get her health ...

Speaking from rabbit experience, which have a lot in common with horses. Diet changes can be difficult. For the first few weeks I would continue to offer feeds she is used to eating. If you can get them to deliver a couple bales of her current hay when they bring her that would be good. Optimally, provide her historic diet as a choice, as well as more ...

60 days into her pregnancy you can use ivermectin which will both deworm and kill off any latched ticks that may have been missed or too hard to get. As for stopping the ticks from latching on; Permethrin wipes are a good repellant. I would personally either purchase low content wipes or buy concentraited Permethrin and add a 10% Permethrin/water mix to a ...

It seems that it's been a while. I hope your dog is well. In case she isn't, in general I would take my dog to a vet immediately after 1 day of not eating. If your vet's suggestions don't work you probably need to see another vet. Does she drink? One thing I try is I cook some rice (no salt, no oil, just rice in water) and some chicken (no salt, no oil, ...

I am not a cat expert, but with rabbits it would be highly likely to see the kits be stillborn when the mother was still nursing. There is some related information about rabbits here Additionally it looks like your 8 month old kittens could be sexual mature, you do not mention having any of the kittens fixed, so it is possible that one of the male kittens ...

Yes platys give live birth but this only means the egg hatch inside the fish,Before the babies and the broken shells are born. What i think might have happened is the embryo inside the eggs have died so the fish have released the dead eggs,This do happen from time to time. It can be because of stress or as a result of bad water quality.

There's a chance she had much more before you caught the three and they were eaten. Platies can also wait to have there babies if they are stressed or sense danger or simply due to exhaustion. Turning lights out may help - a higher percentage of live bearers give birth "at night" maybe it feels safer , but separating her from her comfortable environment may ...
