Stuck Puppy

A friend of mine whelped her first litter yesterday (Finnish Spitz). It unfortunately ended in C section due to a stuck puppy. She has given me permission to show the x ray.

There was no indication that anything was wrong. Her bitch was not in distress. She took her into the vet on a gut feeling

Awww, bless her heart, poor dog.
I have had two C-sections. No picnic.
Thank goodness the owner caught on in time.
I love the little spines and skulls in there!

The owner was on and off the phone with me all day. She got concerned when there was no puppy for 5 hours. I had consulted with people more knowledgeable than I, and none of them seemed alarmed by the break.

She took the bitch in just to get an x ray and see how many were left in her, and the breech puppy surprised everybody

FG, yes, it was Bubbles

you see that pup whose spine is curled?????? THAT IS WHY I NEVER GIVE OXYTOCIN WITHOUT AN X-RAY!!! Good for her for going to the vet instead of giving oxy.....Glad everyone is OK!

Nancy, no. Only 3 of 5 survived. They are all healthy and well. Owner and mother are exhausted. Bubbles is being a GREAT mother! She whelped the first two on her own luckily, so chances of complications from the C section were significantly reduced.

The owner didn't even have oxy, and I don't think she would have risked it anyway. Glad she went with her instincts

A stuck puppy? It's common enough.
