October 8, 2019:  Ava’s puppies had their dew claws removed today.

Around 11:00 a.m., Bonnie started whelping. She was X-rayed this morning at 9:45, and I knew she was having four.  She had a male.  Then the second one, (as in previous labors) was stuck.  I managed to get him out, but I was concerned that since I had gone up in her several times (with rubber gloves), I was afraid she might need an antibiotic.  I called the vet at 1:20.  My vet relayed the message that if she hadn’t had the third one by 2:20 she may need to be brought in. I took her at 2:00.  As soon as I got there, she had the third one, a female.  Then, at 3:00, she was given oxytocin and then whelped the fourth one.  It has been an exhausting day.  Bonnie’s puppies will have their dew claws removed Thursday.
