Litter Updates (5-29-14)
Good news! Aggie and Penny are showing all the normal pregnancy signs, including very large and firm bellies. So we won’t be doing ultrasounds this week. There is no need to put them through a stressful vet visit to confirm what looks fairly obvious.
The updates aren’t too exciting right now. They are super hungry so they get a little extra food. We’ve also transitioned them to a higher calorie food. They drink a ton of water and sleep a lot. They are starting to nest, which means they dig the carpet as if they are creating a burrow for their future puppies.
They will be growing much more in the next couple weeks. During the last week or so, we will be able to see and feel the movements of the puppies.
We will be doing x-rays a few days before they are due – this is where we will be able to count the number of puppies.
