Re: Worried she may be pregnant!

Do virgin bitches have a hymen similar to other female species?? Is there any chance the vet could determine from this that the bitch could never have mated?

Other than this possibility i, like others, can see no possible way that the vet could tell at this early stage she is not pregnant
Unless he has ESP or something!!

But yeah are intentions were not to get her pregnant anyway we are totally against that, but the OH didnt think he would be able to produce sperm at such an early age, which i surpose is also mistake to think but also a risky one, thats why me not really knowing alot about dogs felt extra cautious.

It may sound harsh but i totally agree with what this women posted on facebook she posted this sign thing saying " if you breed staffies, you have blood on your hands" which to be honest i totally agree with that!

I am p1ssed of with the vet, like you guys have been saying has obviously not done his job properly

He has been taking them to this vets thats in earl shilton which is close to where we live, but my cats are registered at this other vets Fairfield, so ive suggested taking her there, cause they have always been really good there!

The vet when i rang up friday said about her having the after morning pill
or would it be better to book her in to have this mismate injection?

and also would next month be okay to get her spayed, or do you think we should do it sooner or later? as we want her doing pretty quick!


Thanks!

Re: Worried she may be pregnant!

I have to say, you have restored my faith in people abit today. Thank you

I'd agree with taking her to the cat's vet - this one seems to have some ulterior motives. Explain that they've mated, and you'd like the mismate jab. They will have to talk through the risks with you, just like they have to tell you you might die when you have operations, but they really are negligible these days.

The vet will let you know if she can be spayed straight away. I hope she can! Then you can let them play together again without worrying.

Post back what the other vet says, and we'll be able to let you know if its right. Some vets just think puppies = , unfortunately, despite the huge number of staffies who are PTS or live huge periods in rescues.

Oh, and we definitely need some pictures of your little terrors!

there is no morning after pill was this the same vet that told you she wasnt pregnant?

yes its the mismate jab ,Alazin, she needs to have, its given over two consecutive days.

you could just get her spayed, but she needs to be spayed sooner rather than later.

so pleased to hear youre going to do the right thing

Yeah funny enough the same vet!
when i rang up friday thats what she said "you can always bring her in for the morning after the pill" -so theres no such thing!?

Is this mismate jab pretty straight forward? i take it theres probably side effects, but she should be okay!
she actually hasnt been sick this morning, which is good, hopefully shes not this afternoon!
do we need to book her in for 2 days to have it?
and then make another appointment to get spayed.

Re: Worried she may be pregnant!

If you have her spayed soon (next week, probably) than she won't need the mismate jab. Just spaying would be enough. It's quite a routine operation - usually you'll drop her off in the morning, and pick her up that night. She'll be a bit dozy because of the anaesthetic, but she'll be back to her old self soon.

If you are going to wait a while before having her spayed, then she'll need the jab first. In this case, I'd ask about Alazin (that's the mismate jab's proper name) by name, because then they will know that you understand the process and hopefully they will actually talk sense!

I'm glad she hasn't been sick today. Let's hope she's feeling better!

Re: Worried she may be pregnant!

Is this the vets on wood street? Ideally yes she should be spayed asap, but failing that being done the mismate injections. Then spay in 2-3 months when shes out of season.

Re: Worried she may be pregnant!

yeah thats the one!

Okay thanks ill have to discuss with him what to do the mismate injection or try and get her in to get spayed this week! if they havent got any free appointments this week, is early next week pushing it abit?

i know with cats you can collect the same day or the following day as all mine are done

is that the same as dogs if shes came around the same day we can bring her back?
and also is it best to also seperate her from Ziggy for a good few days?
and when she can be walked again after the operation?

sorry for all the questions just making sure were doing everything right

Re: Worried she may be pregnant!

I've found Feldon vets in Hinckley the best one locally.

One of them (cant recall which one...sorry) is the vet for Guide dogs for the Blinds pregnant bitches. He saw my bitch who had pups last year.
