Hi everyone, first off I'm new here so not quite sure how this works and I would also like to say before I go into more detail that my chihuahua was mated without my knowledge and I only found out when I took her to the vet. I'm sorry if this is a bit long. So anyway, about 2 weeks ago I noticed my 1 year old chihuahua Poppy was a bit lethargic and was being sick off and on, also noticed her nipples had changed colour and she also had some pink tinged discharge but had assumed that she was due to have her first season (hadn't noticed a season until this point) anyway a few days later she had some more discharge but it was dark brown in colour, so I took her to the vet who did an ultrasound as they thought it was pyomtra but turned out that she was infact in pup, as you can imagine i was very very shocked and couldn't string 2 words together because 1 to my knowledge poppy hadn't had a season yet and also I hadn't had any male dogs near poppy. The only dog she ever plays with is her sister who my gran has. The vet did the ultrasound 3 times and yep there was 1 heartbeat at the least. Vets couldn't explain what the discharge had been either She's had no more since then might I add..anyway I went home and spoke to my husband and he couldn't understand how it happened either, fast forward 3 days later and we realised it must have happened when we were on holiday in May and my husband's best friend was looking after poppy, turns out my husband's friend was also looking after his brothers dog at the same time which his friend just didn't think to let us know she had been around an intact male. So from that we are assuming they mated between 4th and 6th may as that's when the male dog was there... my concern is her age and size not to mention how big she is already due to pregnancy. I haven't noticed any milk coming through yet but i did notice some movement from the pup or pups 5 nights ago and now tonight the movements are very strong. I have attached a picture of her stomach from 3 days ago, it has almost doubled in size since then though but dont want to annoy her too much by taking pictures. I was just wondering what's the rough gestation of a chihuahua pregnancy ? My vets have said when she gl3s into labour to contact them to let them know incase they need to have her in for emergency c-section so they can be on stand by if the need arises so now I'm very scared. She is my baby and I can't bare the thought of anything happening to her and I'm so angry with my husband's friend for allowing it to happen. What can I expect ? I've searched an read for hours about it but I want to know from people who have first hand experience of Labour's of dogs particularly small breed dogs. I've got a whelping kit that I ordered that has things like scissors clamps little sucker thing to clear pups air ways blankets puppy milk syringes scales etc also had a whelling box delievered yesterday so getting her used to that but she keeps going off and hiding under mt daughters bed. She had some slight clear discharge yesterday and today shes only ate a tiny amount of food but it could be the heatwave were having right now making her appetite go. Her temp this morning was 37.7°c and tonight was 37.6°c so not changed much. She just pretty much sleeps all day and night and follows me everywhere whenever i move. Sorry for it being so long and if it doesn't make sense I will try to clarify it the best I can, as you can imagine I'm just scared and on edge with it. Ive also had some nasty things said to me on other sites so I'm hoping I have better luck here.
