Q. We had our 6 month old female pit bull wear a diaper when she was in season so our male would not breed her. This morning he got the diaper off and bred her. What should we do?
Please help...

Me and my fiancee have a 2 year old male American Staffordshire Terrier (70 lbs.) and a 6 month old female Pit Bull (45 lbs.). She started her first heat cycle about 16 days ago. We want them to mate, but because she is not fully grown, we wanted to wait. We had bought something that's similar to a diaper so that he could not mate with her. Just this morning, he had gotten around the diaper and mated with our female Pit Bull.

Now my question is, am I looking at some serious complications? Will my vet have to do a c-section on her? And, will she be OK?

Please help me with this matter.

A. Call your vet – they have a medicine they can give to abort the litter. If your vet does not have it call another until you find one that does.

What you did was naive – but then you already found that out. Diapers don’t stop dogs from breeding. Dog crates stop dogs from breeding. A 6 month old dog is not mentally capable of having a littler of pups.

Feeding tube is 16 inches long (41cm) and approximately 3/32 inches (2.7mm) outside diameter. It is best to store your feeding tube and syringe at normal room temperature. In colder temperatures the feeding tube will become rigid and stiff. At body temperature, the tube becomes softer, resilient, and completely flexible. Syringe is 35cc and attaches to the integral funnel end of the feeding tube. The opposite end of the feeding tube has a closed rounded tip with 2 side port 'eyes'.

I have been doing artificial inseminations on my own dogs since the late 1980s, I don't know how many times I have done an AI but certainly between 250 to 300 times. I currently have a success rate of well over 90%. Our 1 hour DVD shows how we collect a stud dog an immediately inseminate one of our females at our kennel.
