Wheres the milk?

Postby SMAbby » Fri May 15, 2015 10:57 pm

So we are a couple of days away from whelp and there is no milk in the faucets? Keeping in mind this is only my second litter, I am a little nervous. Last time she was dripping a week before?

Any need to worry?

2 days away from the first breeding. So I guess that still means we could be 5 days out..........maybe I am just panicing.

It's variable on several fronts, could be you aren't that close, could be she won't start lactating till labor ensues. As long as you have decent mammary development I would not panic.

Yes, she has good mammary developement. Her teats look like they could support a calf.

I will relax now. :) With exception that she will probaly drop the pups tomorrow when my son graduates!

Daughter graduated yesterday with her Doctrine in Pharmacy. My son graduates tomorrow from High school and ships out to the Navy in July. Empty nest...... :( :(

You were correct. What it was, I didnt have anything to stress out about with this litter............so I found something and I didnt need too. Mom and pups are doing great. It was funny, she had the exact opposite of the litter from last year. last year it was 2 males and 6 females. This time it was 2 females and 6 males. Kinda funny.
