How do you induce labor for a dog?

Tags: , , 11 Comments

Try not to worry – over ninety-eight percent of all dogs deliver their puppies without assistance or complications. When a mother dog is stuck in incomplete labor the first thing a vet may do is administer oxytocin and calcium to stimulate uterine contractions. If the puppies are too big to pass through the birth canal or the oxytocin fails, a vet may consider a cesarean. Any comments?

    The vet did all he could do..It sounds like the C-section is your only option.You can massage her lower back a LOT.. This may strengthen her labor…Do NOT massage her tummy, as this will injure the puppies.You can stimulate her nipples, by pulling/twisting, if she will allow you to..This also strenghtens the contractions.Try for the Care Credit card.. It is no-interest card to be used for veterinary care, and it allows up to 18 months to repay.. all of the vets in my state accept this card..You can apply on-line, and know within minutes if you have been approved.. All it requires is a steady source of income.http://carecredit.com/patients/whatis.htmFor veterinary care, go to this page, and click on professions, and scroll down to veterinary.http://carecredit.com/providerloc/

    My dog gave birth yesterday afternoon to a stillborn pup yesterday afternoon. She has not delivered the rest. I applied for carecredit and was denied. None of the vets will take payments and I have NO one to get help from. She seems to no longer be in labor and I can see and feel the pups moving around inside her. She doesn’t seem to be in labor anymore either. HELP!!!!! I don’t want to lose my baby girl!!!

    • Amy Morrow says:

      You take her to the vet anyway duh how could you just wait and cause her to die because of a bill. The vet will work with you I am sure in the end. Either way I wouldn’t have even stopped to apply would have taken her then worried about it.

    • Carclare says:

      This is the disgrace of the vet industry. They won’t help one patient at a time. Even with payment arrangements. I pray your situation turned out alright.
