Get your pets spayed
Trixie narrowly escaped a caesarean section, after being unexpectedly mated with a larger dog. She finally gave birth naturally on our consult room table and the picture shows her with her large first born puppy.
Although the pregnancy was unplanned, the owners of the dog have gladly welcomed the little ones into their family, but realize the importance of getting her spayed before this can happen again. This highlights the potential risks of unwanted pregnancies to mother and babies’ health as well as financial implications for the owner of not addressing the reproductive status of their pet.
Look out for follow-up pictures of Trixie and her offspring on the LSPCA facebook site!
