Q. I have a female rottweiler that is 9 months old and a male rottweiler that is just a little over a year old. They ended up mating on her 1st heat. What should I do?
I have a female rottweiler that is 9 months old and a male rottweiler that is just a little over a year old. they ended up mating on her 1st heat. I wanted to wait until they were at least 2-3 years old before they had puppies just to make sure that they were full grown and mature. If she is pregnant is this going to stop her growth? What should I do? Any advise you can give will me out a lot!

Thank you.

A. I’d definitely recommend a very good diet, We have a great section on feeding dogs, I think you’ll find a lot of helpful information there. There really isn’t any way of knowing how this will affect her growth, so all you can do at this point is feed her the best quality food and give her the best care possible.

I’d also recommend you educate yourself on whelping.

I’d suggest http://leerburg.com/breedqa.htm and this video on whelping.

I hope this helps.

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'.
