Who needs the circus just come to my house it’s for free! Wake up this am to dogs frantically barking at the fence as the cows had strolled over. The dogs were basically throwing the “F” bombs at them in doggy language. One mommy cow decided her kids the calves should not be hearing all these profanities so she tried to head butt the offending dog who was closest who happened to be Nana … all flipping hell breaks loose … Nana is incensed and literally foaming at the mouth in her anger and embarrassment at being nearly head butted by a bloody cow but carefully sidestepping the 3 electric strands at the bottom of the fence! Harley the rescue JR decides her mate had been unceremoniously aggrieved and rushes in to kill the offender total disregarding the fact there are 3 vicious lines of electricity separating her from the bovine! So she gets wacked! Screams and this summons Peaches the Tiny Yorkie who decides she has had enough of this entire head butting, mooing, barking and screaming she will just try get through the double gates and go and tackle the offender at the ankles from the rear. The bigger they are the harder they fall … right? Why is mummy screaming blue murder and hyperventilating? A peach asks. .. I got this mum!!! Oh crap Aunty Beauty just grabbed me and brought me inside! Man that cow was in my sights and ALL MINE! At least mummy has stopped screaming!

Canine Breeding

 

Definition of Birth

The birth of puppies, also called the ‚Äúwhelping‚ÄĚ of a litter, involves a complex chain of events medically referred to as ‚Äúparturition.‚ÄĚ Parturition is triggered by an even more complex cascade of hormonal changes that encourages the uterus of a pregnant female to expel its contents. Late in pregnancy, when the hormonal systems of the fetuses are relatively mature, the adrenal glands of the puppies and their mother start secreting lots of corticosteroids (so-called ‚Äústress hormones‚ÄĚ). This causes the placenta‚Äôs that are attached to each fetus by its umbilical cord to release a hormone called prostaglandin F2 alpha (PF2). PF2 causes the mother‚Äôs ovaries to stop producing progesterone, a hormone that is essential to sustaining her pregnancy. As a result, the mother‚Äôs previously tightly-closed cervix relaxes, softens, opens and allows the puppies to exit through the birth canal and come out into the big bold world.

Dog Health Information

The Dog Health Information Center is an increasingly comprehensive list and accompanying information about the many health and behavioral conditions that can occur in companion dogs. You can use this library to get understandable, reliable information about both common and uncommon canine health disorders, including information about clinical signs/symptoms, diagnosis, current treatment options, and prognosis. We make every reasonable effort to ensure the accuracy of this information, but of course your veterinarian ultimately is the best source for precise medical information about your particular pet.
