hi my name is Pam Nichols I’m with WWE
00:02
Utah Animal Care calm I’d like to talk
00:05
to you about the proper care of a
00:07
pregnant dog first of all before your
00:10
dog becomes pregnant it’s really
00:11
important for her to become current on
00:12
all of her vaccinations so that when she
00:14
is having puppies she delivers the
00:17
proper protection vaccinations
00:19
protection to those babies so before she
00:21
gets pregnant have her checked out by
00:23
your veterinarian have her vaccinations
00:25
current once she is pregnant at about
00:28
day 30 you can have a blood test done to
00:30
confirm that she is actually pregnant by
00:34
day 55 gestation and a dog by the way is
00:38
58 to 65 days by day 50 to 55 x-rays can
00:44
be taken to determine how many puppies
00:45
she’s going to deliver and how big they
00:47
are in some breeds c-sections are very
00:49
very common so puppies are extremely
00:51
large your vet might offer you a
00:53
cesarean section throughout gestation
00:56
regular check-ups are kind of important
00:57
for your mom you want to have a you want
00:59
to have a chronological history of her
01:01
weight to ensure that she’s gaining
01:03
proper weight and a chronological
01:04
history of her body temperature because
01:06
just before delivery her body
01:08
temperature will drop pretty drastically
01:10
and that will give you an idea that
01:11
she’s about to deliver I’d like you to
01:13
make sure that your dog is on a on a
01:15
good quality puppy food my two favorites
01:17
are iams puppy food or you can do but
01:18
puppy food and you can do is very
01:20
specific for the breed that you’re
01:21
feeding which is really nice eliminates
01:23
a lot of hassle when your puppies are
01:26
about three days old you’ll want to have
01:27
your mom checked and you’ll want to have
01:29
the puppies checked and at that time
01:31
anything appropriate for the puppies can
01:32
be done either dewclaws can be removed
01:34
or tails docked or anything else that
01:35
needs to be done and your mom can have a
01:37
general physical examination
