Caring for a Dog and Her Puppies?

My Pit Bull just had her babies and I am worried because she usually has 13 or 10, but this time she only had 4. One died because she was laying on it. It's her third litter; should I be worried?

How often do you breed your female? Does she get high quality food for breeding bitches? Does she have regular veterinary care? How old is she? All these things will affect the number and health of her puppies, as well as her health.

Your dog should not be bred more than once a year. She needs special food for herself and the pups, and regular veterinary care. If you can't provide these things for her have her spayed. Otherwise you may lose your dog and any puppies she may have. There are a lot of backyard breeders out there who breed for money and care little about their dogs. It's a club you don't want to join.

Yes - you should be worried, and by now (it's three days since you posted your question) you should have had your female to the vet.


Please update to let us know how she is!

Please don't breed your pit .. There are 2 million unwanted pits a year who are euthanized because people think they want a pit . Then turn them into the kill shelters where they are put to sleep within 3 days .. We are all stressed over the amount of money and time we put into trying to save just one Pit.. It's exhausting. Help us .. Don't create more tragic endings .
