My female Rotti started to have a dark greenish discharge. I took her to the vet and she gave birth to 16 stillborns. What would make her go into labor and have all the pups dead?
I own a 3 year old female Rotti that I bred to my 2 year old male Rotti. Everything went fine as far as them getting tied and she indeed got pregnant, but around day 40 she started to get this clear discharge coming from her vagina. I did some looking on the internet and I saw that a clear discharge is fine but then by day 45 it started to turn a dark grenish. I took her to her vet and he also said that it was normal but put her on anitbotics just incase. The next day she started having her puppies, 16 in all. They were all still and the only one that didn't look right was the first one. You could see that it had started decaying inside her but what would make her go into labor and have all her puppies and them be dead? Thank you. Please help.
I’m sorry to hear about this. :-(
A dark green discharge is NEVER normal in a pregnant dog. It’s a sign of fetal distress. The clear discharge you saw is normal.
The first thing I would do is find a new vet! A vet that understands canine reproduction preferably. Most vets do not have much experience with breeding and whelping as they usually try to get everyone to spay and neuter their dogs. Do a google search for a canine reproduction specialist.
There are so many things that could have happened to your litter, anything from something the female was exposed to (like chemicals or the wrong medication) to an infection.
A good repro specialist would be the one to consult about this.
I wish you the best.
