Social network for pugs and their people.
I guess this should be under the breeding forum, blog, area.
I am just thankful that The babies are all healthy. Bebe is healthy and Hamlet is a good sire. Bebe and Hamlet are a good match. Bebe did not loose any during the birthing on either litter and both litters were not over sized with quantities or size of the pups., I think that says a lot, about both parents.
I feel finding the right sire is an important part of breeding, as much as having a good damn (bitch).
I don't line in breeding or line breeding. I feel this leads to as many health related issues as does over weight, and wrong diets.
I try to do as much vetting as possible as I can. I am always looking up stuff and how to fix issues so I can do it myself and see for myself what really works.
We went to the vet three times in two weeks, two different vet. Spike and and Lucky (limping and heart meds) to one and Bebe to another for X-rays. We came home with ticks and fleas.. I am not sure which one we got them from.

Vomiting once in a while may not necessarily indicate any underlying illness in your dog, as these animals are tuned in a manner that their body discard materials that are inedible. They are also found to regurgitate food that gets stuck in the esophagus.
Milder causes inducing vomiting include stress, worms, overeating, hasty eating, consumption of inedible materials, eating soon after exercise, motion sickness, etc. However, vomiting in dogs may indicate serious health problems like kidney or liver failure, pancreatitis, parvovirus infection, food allergies, ulcers, gastritis, enterocolitis, cancer, intestinal obstruction, poisoning, distemper, and diabetes.
If vomiting episodes continue for the entire day or if the vomit contains bright red blood or digested blood (looks like coffee grounds), then an immediate visit to the vet is necessary. Medical attention is imperative in case of additional symptoms like diarrhea, bloating, depression, and lethargy or if the dog exhibits projectile vomiting.
