Boo’s Puppies

July 18th, 2013

Boo came to us early yesterday morning after having delivered one puppy, but then exhibiting difficulty delivering any more.  An ultrasound revealed that at least one puppy had a low heart rate (a sign of distress), and an x-ray revealed that Boo had at least 7 more to deliver!  For the safety of Boo and her puppies, we performed an emergency c-section.  We were concerned that we might not be able to save all the puppies, but the surgery went great and Boo got to go home today recovering well, and with 8 healthy pups!
