    Abortion for my dog

    I know this is a strange request but I am hoping someone here can help me. I am single and during the day I leave my Golden Retriever Julia in my fenced in backyard so she can run and play while I am at work. I have not had her fixed because I want to breed her with a friends Chocolate Lab.

    My next door neighbor is a very nice older woman but recently her son his wife and their 2 teenage sons moved in with her. They brought a pit bull with them. Today when I got home from work Julia was in their front yard having sex with the pit bull and the two boys were standing there laughing. I know they had to let Julia out because she has never gotten out before.

    Now I am scared she is pregnant and I don't know what to do. Is there something I can do here at home that would not hurt her? Every bit of money I make goes towards bills and I really cant afford a huge vet bill right now.

    Thank you for your help,

    Rita

    Don't do anything to your dog. Take her to the vet for an emergency spay--and beg or borrow the money from someone.

    ...There is alot wrong with this situation. For the love of God, don't do anything to your dog. Anything you do at home is more than likely gonna hurt her, IMO.

    I've never had any experience with this, but before you flip out, you should just bring her to the vet to have her checked out, and possibly ask about an ultrasound.

    Oh, and lock whatever you can so your neighbors can't let her out.

    Get your dog to a vet. The longer you wait the more expensive anything is going to be, for the safety of your dog you need to go to the vet.

    Re: Abortion for my dog

    Get an emergency spay. Unless your dog is pedigreed/titled/has a show record or performance record/has OFA certs as well as other genetic defect tests, then she shouldn't be bred anyway. Keeping an intact female requires more care than most people can provide, as you have found out. The testing that should be done on a dog prior to being bred runs about 2000.00. Responsible breeders are breeding the best to the best, in order to better the breed.

    If you can't afford to have her spayed there are places available that will do it cheaper. Whatever they charge is still going to be cheaper than the potential cost of having a litter. What happens if the dog has complications during delivery and needs a C-Section? Your dog could die during delivery.

    Do you have any idea how many Pit mix puppies are out there that are euthed every year? And how many average Labs are euthed every year?

    Do the smart thing and get her spayed. If you are barely making ends meet, then you probably aren't showing the dog/campaigning her or getting certs done.

    Have a spay/abort done....Why in the world would you be breeding your Golden to a Lab anyway?
    What do you hope to achieve?

    There is nothing that you can safely do to terminate your dog's possible pregnancy.

    There is a hormone injection that a veterinarian can administer that can terminate a possible pregnancy, but it does come with risks. I have no idea what the costs are, or if your vet will even do it.

    I do have to ask ... why do you want to breed your dog, and especially with another breed?

    I have to warn you, you won't find many people here that will be in support of that. The overwhelming majority of us here are supporters of responsible breeding practices, spaying/neutering and adopting the millions of homeless dogs in rescues and shelters that desperately need homes rather than contributing to an already out-of-control problem.

    The responsible thing to do is to spay your dog to prevent pregnancy and to keep her healthy from mammary and uterine cancers.

    Re: Abortion for my dog

    I know its probably impossible for you to tell me but do you know what something like this would cost at the vet? I have read on yahoo that you can give a dog valium and that will cause an abortion. I really do not know what to do at this point. My fear is they have been doing this for a while and I just caught them today.

    Re: Abortion for my dog

    It depends on the vet. my vet charges about $150 for a spay. Shelters sometimes have cheap spay and neuter programs as well. Please dont get your dog Valium!! Or anything else for that matter.

    Read this that another member just posted..

    Re: Abortion for my dog

    The reason I am breeding her with my friends dog is because he offered me $300 and said he would handle the puppies and any vet bills Julia might get during the pregnancy. I think he plans on selling them but I am not sure.

    Spay your dog. It will solve all of this. Even if you aborted now, another dog will jump your fence and breed her anyway.

    Spay your dog so no one has to kill her puppies when they are no longer puppy-cute.

    There are better ways to make $300.

    Re: Abortion for my dog

    So you didn't even know your dog was in heat?!?! NEVER keep an in heat dog outside alone, if she hadn't jumped the fence she would have. Were they tied (butt to butt) or was he just humping her? If they weren't tied then there's a possibility she's not pregnant but since you've been leaving her outside it's probably happened before if not by a different dog. Don't breed your Golden to a lab, they are different breeds. Not sure what would be accomplished with that. Don't try to do a home abortion, goodness so much could go wrong that way. Get your dog spayed or even give her to a rescue. Getting her spayed would eliminate future pregnancies and the current one.

    Re: Abortion for my dog

    If you can't afford a vet visit, how in the world are you going to support 5 to 12 puppies running around needing shots, de-worming, and food? How in the world are you going to afford if your bitch needs an Emergancy C-section while in whelp? It happens more often then you think to be perfectly honest. Breeding is not something to take lightly and is a very expensive thing, and can be dangerous. I've watched healthy bitches die after birth or turn away from feeding the pups and the owner has to step in and feed 5-12pups every 2 hours. Talk about hard!

    As for home abortions, no there is NOTHING safe. This is something your vet must do. There is a hormone injection but it has a very high risk of side effects. A Spay abortion is much safer.

    I hope you learned your lession about keeping an intact female outside when she's in heat. Males can smell a female in heat over 4 miles away and have been known to break windows, chew through doors, climb walls, and chew through walls to get to a female in heat. Heck there has even been dogs who have been crated in different crates that have been able to tie together and end up pregnant.

    I'm sorry, but this is a terrible reason to breed your dog. Not only is it completely irresponsible, it's using your dog for your own financial gain. It's tantamount to whoring her out.

    Re: Abortion for my dog

    If you can't afford about 200 dollars for a spay, what makes you think you can afford to breed your dog. A golden will have a large litter. She will need to eat more during pregnancy. She will need vet visits, to check up on the pups. And once born, obviously the puppies need vet care and food as well.

    All of that besides testing to genetic defects, which I'm sure you know nothing about.

    Please just spay the dog. You wouldn't have a human baby for the hell of it would you?

    Please please please do not do this. Take her to a vet. Vets are qualified to help you through decisions about oops litters, people on the internet are not.

    If the valium works, you dodged a bullet. Until your unfixed dog gets out again, or eager unfixed males chew through your fence or climbs through your windows to get at your dog in heat. Also, how are you going to know if it worked or not?

    If it doesn't work, you're going to have to take her to the vet at some point, either to care for her during the pregnancy or because giving your dog seizure medication had terrible side effects.

    Get to a vet. Please, please, go to the vet.

    Wow.. $300 to put your dogs life and health at risk and bring another dozen mixed breed puppies into the world.. good deal.

    Do a spay/abort. That is really the only 'safe' way to do an abortion on a dog. The world doesn't need another oops litter of pit bull mixes. (Or lab mixes for that matter)
