Q. After breeding my female, she had a lot of dark drops of blood. Is this ok or normal?
Dear Cindy,

First I would like to say that you have a beautiful website with a good information that easy to know for every one, thank you very much. I have question on breeding... I have a couple of rottweilers and I want to breed them. From the the day 1 to day 9 she started her heating period it was normal and clean and the blood became very light that hard to see then I let my male jump on her from the 9 day till 14 day but today I shocked because I found a lot of dark drop of blood...so I do not understand ... can you please explain me that thank you very much.

Best regards,
Alf

A. I’ve seen dark spots of blood from our females after they have been bred. I would suggest you keep an eye on your female, if she seems to be drinking a lot of water or has a lot of discharge that is off color or greenish, she needs to see a vet right away. A few spots of dark blood are usually no reason to get worried, but keep a close eye on her and if you have any doubts, a visit to the vet is in order.

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'.
