Carrie brings her healthy pups into the world
Carrie is a 4 year old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel who recently visited us as she was having trouble whelping (giving birth). This was Carrie's third litter and her owner was concerned during this labour that she was having trouble passing the first pup. As a result, she was promptly attended to by one of our vets.
Initial examination of Carrie revealed that everything was going according to plan early in the labour. To aid the process, medication was provided to allow stronger contractions to aid the delivery. Shortly after this was administered, the puppies were delivered at appropriate intervals and Carrie maintained good energy levels throughout the birthing.
By the time the whelping had ceased, Carrie had brought four healthy pups into the world. We are pleased to say that mother and pups have progressed well since and soon the young ones will be heading off to loving homes!
