Thread: Lined my Fox Red Labrodor, is it worth scanning the bitch

  1. #1

    Lined my Fox Red Labrodor, is it worth scanning the bitch

    I have lined the left hand side fox red bitch, to the dog third on the left.

    Is there any point in having the bitch scanned, and when is it best done

    Regards

    I got one of my terriers done about ten years ago and the vet said he could see three pups and she ended up having nine , I think the technology is a lot better now

    Handy to know if it's just one or lots so you have a rough idea of what to expect, but they won't tell you much more than that, I got mine done and it showed 4-5 but she had 8 in the end......

    I had my lab scanned and the vet said they dont do it to count pups just to say yes or no, he showed me pups on the screen and said there was at least 3, she had 9.

    The main benefit is knowing if the dog is pregnant. Dogs come into season every 6 months and are pregnant for 2 months so do not need to recognise if they are pregnant. We regularly see bitches with abdominal enlargement and milk in their teats that are not pregnant.

    Our indemnity insurer tells vets never to count puppies, so I won't. It is impossible in a segment a millimetre across even attempt to count them.

    Scan at 28 days.

    If you know she is pregnant you can feed and make plans accordingly.

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.
