Q. My dog got pregnant on accident and is about to have her puppies. I am so worried about what is the right thing to do, could you help direct me to some information?
Hello Ed and Cindy

We are new pet owner and we rescued two Chihuahua dogs, one male and one female. This past July my dog went into heat, and I got advice from my neighbor who has several dogs about when I need to separate them, I was told in her 3rd week of being in heat. So I did not separate my dogs and now she is pregnant, I took her to the Vet and they want to terminate the pregnancy and we did not feel that was the right thing to do, however we did an have our male dog fixed soon after we found out, I know it was my mistake not asking the correct person the question and I accept full responsible for my lack of knowledge. However she is going to deliver any day now and I am scared to death on what to do and not to do. I have read so much online since I have found out and I don't know which advice I should follow. My female dog is young, she got pregnant in her second cycle and I feel so guilty about that but please direct me to the right information.

A. Here is a section on breeding.

I’d also recommend our whelping video. This video is available as an instant streaming video, so you can start watching it right away.

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'.

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.
