Unfortunately after Purple boy was born – Elli was exhausted and continued to have contractions but pups did not appear. We knew from the x-ray we did last week that Elli was going to have 6 pups and could feel the two pups inside her. The pups were a fair distance back from the birth canal. So we waited a while. Two hours past and we called the emergency vet centre, took her in with the pups and got several shots of oxytonin over a couple of hours. 4.30am arrived and still no pups. The vet did an ultrasound and listened to the heart rates of the pups, one was a little distressed by nothing urgent and the other one was just fine. We opted for one more shot of oxytonin, now Elli’s third and waited another half an hour and she went in for a C-section. We are pretty sure the issue was sheer exhaustion as Elli nearly fell asleep standing up at the vets.

The last two pups were born vis C-section at about 7.30am.

Royal Blue boy – weight approximately 500 grams
