take her to the vet..
And why was she never spayed and you allowed her to get pregnant? if she desires a c-section and you cannot pay for it, she and the puppies will die.
Call The vet .
Don't schedule an appointment.
just tell them your situation and next they will tell you the best way to go .
After the puppies are born, be certain to take her to get fixed. The humane society will spay/neuter for about $100, which is a ton cheaper than taking the dog to the vet because something happen to the dog or puppies during labor. In the meanwhile, pray, keep a close eye on her, and make sure she's comfortable and feed well.
Keep an eye on her, and get yourself a kiddie pool if you can find one, or a righteous sized box. Put in a towel or a couple of old pillowcases. If she has her pups while you are at college there's not much you can do, but let nature take its course.
If you are at domestic, this is what to do. Watch carefully when she goes into labor. Help to make certain each pup comes out, escapes the sac, and starts to breathe. If the pup is having problems rub its chest lightly next to a towel and make sure it's mouth is clear.
Dogs have be having pups for tens of thousands of years without our help.
DO sort sure to increase her food to puppy chow, not all at once if you haven't be feeding her puppy chow...mix 1/2 and 1/2 with the food you do give...NO MILK! they produce their own in need your help.and make sure to tolerate her eat as much as she wants, and lots of water.
How did she get bred and you didn't know it? Call your vet and ask for an appointment to let him see how far along he thinks she is. You can apply for Care Credit and wages over time.Your vet can explain the things you need to know that are more than you can read on this site.Good luck to your dog and I hope that you have her spayed so she doesn't have to move about through this again.
Call a vet and see whether they can help anyway. Just because you 'can't afford' medical care for your dog, doesn't imply that you can just 'do it yourself'. Small dogs have a high rate of complications during transfer. Also, it would be best to have your dog fixed, so this doesn't happen again. Good luck.
To tell when she is approximately to give birth, get a thermometer and take her warmth, rectally. Normal Temp is 38c. It will drop a whole degree 24-48 hours before whelping. That will afford you a better idea of when to be around.
I would NOT leave this dog on it's own to whelp.
walk into a vet clinic in ur neighbourhood.
Say "I enjoy zero money, i'm a student and
my dog is pregnant. help"
They might help you free.
can i ask why you haven't spayed her?
take it to a freakin vet! lool
Do you know how long she's be that way? it's would really help if you know an aproxamite time of her due date.
Any kind of breeders would be good to talk to. Even nieghbors that own had dogs that have had puppies would be honourable.
If you can't afford a vet then I say you should probably start saving or tell to some close friends about your problem.
If you're worried about her going into labor while you're at school next see if you can find a friend you can rely on to check on her once or twice everyday that doesn't go to school or is domestic schooled.
Keep your cell on vibrate at school.
A lot of times whether you're dog does go into labor and you can't afford a vet then you can take her and you can communicate to your vet about a payment plan to pay stale the cost of helping her out. If you really care for your pet than it shouldn't really matter how much it costs as long as you can pay it sour.
EDIT: Also, It isn't exactly a good idea to permit her go into labor on her own. No matter what people notify you. "Dogs have been going into labor for hundreds of years" but Chihuahua have be bred to their size and helped very much to that way. Because of you're dogs small size at hand is a very high chance that she will have need of some serious help with her labor.
I'm sorry you can't afford a vet, but it is very impressive that she has someone skilled to help her. Especially if they are skilled near small breeds.
animals can do it on their own, just make sure some broadsheet is down.
