Maltese mom, unless you are an experienced or mentored breeder who has responsibly done all the prerequisite testing and has done the same for the sire, you are in for an unpleasant shock here on the forums.
Please understand that far too often people breed because they can make money, they want an offspring of their "wonderful" female or because puppies are so cute.
I just would like to know what health test exactly your pups were tested, I'm not talking about Thyroid and brucellosis, I mean the health testing. Sorry, when a breeder comes on here, they have to prove themselves, so much more as a new member.
To understand dog pregnancy, you should first get a general comprehension of how her body works.
The first thing you will recognize when your dog goes into heat is a swollen vulva and bloody discharge. Early signs of dog pregnancy include a decreased appetite, a sudden decrease in activity, nipple growth, and behavioral changes.
After the first few weeks her appetite will reappear and she will rapidly start gaining weight. If the mother struggles with a puppy that becomes lodged then you can try to assist the birth by grasping the puppy with a clean clothe.
If the delivery of pups doesn't commence after she showed the normal greenish-black discharge in the beginning of the birthing process.
You can periodically examine the mother's nipples to make sure they are not infected, and even palpate them with a warm damp cloth to clean the area.
She will pass soft stool for a few days due to the natural change in her new eating habit and from the residue she consumed while cleaning her pups.
The new mother will take care of the puppies after birth so there is very little you need to do to assist them.
During the weaning process, cut their milk intake down gradually by substituting the remainder of their diet with watered down puppy food and milk replacer.

During this maintenance period, the site has been upgraded to the newest versions to enhance the user experience. We have several breeders that post here in the forums that are respected for their dedication to the health, temperament and showing of their dogs, the rest, many who are basically backyard breeders can really get blasted.


But I am doing the right thing and do not need to be criticised because I know I am not a BYB. When called on bad breeding practices, ALWAYS claim that you are merely an innocent posting as a favor to a friend or family member. No matter what anyone else says, claim that you obviously know what you are doing because you've been breeding for a long time. If breeding poo [as in "Cock-a-Poo," "Peek-a-Poo," etc.] dogs or other mutts, always point to "hybrid vigor" as proof of your dogs' superiority. Maltesemom has had all the right "passwords" so far, I for one am willing to give her the benefit of the doubt. Any location comfortably designated for her nesting needs is good enough to be her whelping area. If she delivered two pups closer together than her comfort level allowed, then her contractions will take longer to end.
It is good if they start taking solid food, but if you are still having difficulty then never deprive the puppy of the mother's milk until he is able to eat solids for however long it takes.
Please note we are still working on the site, so its appearance may change from time to time over the next few days. You know the truth will come out if she hasn't done what she says she's done, and then we'll all have a good flame war and go on out merry. Veterinarians suggest that you do not breed her during her first heat period unless it happens after she is 1 year old. If she feels exhausted more than normal, is far more affectionate than her regular behavior or just wants to be left alone, it is because of the hormonal changes triggered by her pregnancy. Smaller breeds look larger when pregnant than bigger breeds because they have less room to carry all of their puppies. You can use old blankets or towels to make a soft environment for the babies to be born into. Once you see it drop into the 97-99 degrees range, and notice it has been the same consistently for 2 readings taken 12 hours apart, this is when you can be sure the delivery will happen within the next 24 hours. I have a wonderful maltese and know a great stud and both have been checked and well taken care of before I even made arrangements for this pregnancy.Thank you! Do understand that no one means to be harsh, unfortunately we get a lot of people who bypass all the hard work responsible owners like yourself have to do!


I understand people are some what harsh because they want to make sure I'm not another one out there.
Yes, "had all her health tests" could be ambiguous, but I still think that list is jumping the gun a bit. She still will not show a major interest in them, until this 6-11 day stage comes to an end. You will be able to feel the puppy movement during the last week of her pregnancy because that is when the babies are getting into position for birth.
With no whelping box, your female may shred your couch, or invade your closet, to make her own nest. I talked with my vet and had him check on genetics of her and the stud to make sure they have a good and healthy litter. My friends and family are wanting one and have before I even decided to go through with this. The most common duration for this stage is 5-9 days but has been known to go on for nearly 20 days for different dogs. Don't be surprised to see several drops of milk leaking from her nipples prior to the labor. Never place a heating pad down for the puppies, but do realize that the low floor can be 10 degrees cooler than the rest of the room. You may give them a separate feeding time to have an equal chance of achieving a full diet. Always rid their area of fleas because a flea infestation could drain the little pups of blood at a dangerous rate.
She will sever the umbilical cord herself, but sometime you may interject if the natural process takes too long.
