So I had a bitch due to pup Tuesday. Went out Monday and she had 3 pups but it was hours apart. So another check  nothing else coming by 11 that night I was checking the bitch and green discharge was coming out of her and a phone call to the vets and she was in for a section. Left there with 8 pups. Stayed up most the night getting the pups sucking. The next day the runt died which didn’t surprise me. Since then she has lay on 3 more. Went out this morning and everything was grand so took the dogs for a walk came back and started cleaninh them out and got to her kennel and she had her stitches burst open so back into the vet and sowed her up again. Hopefully that’s the end of a bad run. The vet reckoned it’s only the 3rd bitch he’s seen burst her stitches in 40 years.

He said he’s only herd of it happening 3 times in his career. He said it happens with cows more often but not dogs. I reckon when I went for a walk with the other dogs she was probably jumping around the kennels

Never nice to have happen. Hopefully that'll be the end of it a fine example of you never know what's around the corner where terriers are concerned. Bliss in the kennels one minute turn your back and carnage.

That’s for nothing to be fair. My uncle got a setter done 3 months back and it was 250 and another mate in cork paid 450 last summer.

My mate couldn't get in touch with Bob so went to the vet college I think the pups were dead inside the bitch the wanted two and a half grand,and just as his Mrs was about to sign the consent form Bob rang so he took the bitch to him and all he charged was  eighty euro that's some price drop.
