Yesterday night was sleepless!!!! When I got back home at 7.30pm, Joel told me that Ginger's private part suddenly become very wet and got discharge. I was so worried that it's the amniotic fluid came out. I called Dr.Lim, Dr.Sam, and Leng to ask about symptoms that the dog is going to give birth. I gave ginger a box, some newspaper but she doesn't seem like digging or anything... She just seems restless and very low of energy.. HUHhhh...... I called my friends asked which Vet is still open at night and at last, I realize Segar Pets Centre And Veterinary Services is available until 9pm. Joel and I rush to the vet for Ginger check-up.
When we were on the way to the vet, I think the amniotic fluid just came out... It's a looks like a little balloon and the liquid is GREEN in colour! Doc said after the amniotic fluid come out, need to wait for 6 hours and if Ginger still struggling to give birth, she will need to go through caesarian.
So we went back home, and monitor Ginger.. Waited and waited.. So suffer to look at her.... She looks so restless, can't sit and even lie down properly.. She seems to be pushing but nothing come out... Around 10.30pm, the amniotic bag is still there..... I try to pull out and it burst... Then there's another white balloon thingy come out also... NOBODY tell me about that! Again I try to pull that thing out also. Quite tough but it burst instead of pulling out something.... I was so worried!!!!!! It was almost 11pm.... Joel said waited until 12am and see how...
Eventually I fall asleep and Joel woke me up at 12.30am. He said there's something sticking out from the private part. It's 2 little LEGS!!! OMG!! Abnormal birth!!! We rushed to vet and I keep pressing the emergency bell!!! HUHhhhHHHh!!!! The assistant immediately called Doc Ben Tham who is on call that night. Doc arrived after 20minutes!! Ginger need to do surgery immediately and off she go into the operating theater.. Heartache to see her like that... Seriously, it's not easy to give birth. The surgery lasted for about 1 hour... Doc came out and passed a box with two little CHI HUA HUA inside! He said 1 couldn't make it.
We went downstair to have a look at Ginger. She just started to wake up, looks confused and blur.. Struggling to stand up.. First time seeing her in E-collar.. thanks God she's alright and make it through.. Rush hour not yet ended! Have to go back home and warm the pups. Doc gave us a pair of rubber glove and told us to fill it with hot water. Then place it under a cloth and put the pups on top to keep them warm. Doc also told us to feed the pups EVERY 2 HOURS......... Feed little newborn chi hua hua for the very first time.. first milking was at 3am.. the second was at 5am... and the next was at 7am.. and follow by another 2 hours...HOHhhh.... Really sleepless!!! Giving birth already not easy.. Milking is killing me!
Milking the puppy!
Ginger discharged at 10am this morning. Need to get her back to vet for check up after 10 days.
Got back home, we showed the pups to her. She looks terrified with them! OMG! Don't tell me she won't be milking the pups!!! Ginger only go near and sniff her pups.. I put her inside the cage and get the pups near her and eventually the pups started to suck. After a few try, Ginger only started to know that they are her pups~ And she STARTED milking~~~ YAY!
