    Hi I'm wanting a little advice I have a dog ready to have her first litter any day now shes 64 days but I've noticed she's started scratching and biting her self a lot I think she's picked up few fleas around 2 weeks ago I've been told to bath her with washing liquid and Apple cider vinegar witch ive used before but I'm afraid it might scare her as she's hates me grooming her she hates her claws clipped even though she's had them done since newborn pup I think it's just in her to be scared as she's a chalkie so can any one give me bit of advice please as I need to make sure she's got no fleas before she has her babys

    I would speak to your Vet and ask what is safe to use on her at this point.

    I've spoke the vet and he said it's ok to bath her if she's not freaked out and likes a bath but there's nothing 100% he told me even frontline SPRAY witch is safe on pregnant dogs might not remove them all

    If your bitch had been mated multiple times then there’s a pretty good chance she’s pregnant.

    Were the matings intentional? If not then, presuming they took place on the 10th of December, she is still within the timeframe for the mismate jab.

    The likelihood is she will be pregnant.

    What Breed are they?

    My dog is 5 days after birthing a litter of 3. Via C Sec.....She had a small amount of bleeding on the day she had them then last night on day 4 the bleeding started BAD clots and lots of blood loss not a odd colour and no smell but just a bit worried. It’s a little less today .. she is feeding and cleaning the pups greatly and has been drinking lots but not eating loads but is eating. She has no temp or anything
    Should I worry or is this normal ?

    If the bleeding doesn't stop soon, you need to speak to your Vet.

    Some bleeding after delivery is normal, but it should not be excessive.
