Hello, I tried to breed my dog Elle a 5 year old boxer- mastiff cross on the 24th of July unsuccessfully second time and within two days she was showing signs of an infection which was cleared up with Synulox and anti inflamitory by the vet who also gave her a scan. Elle had not eaten for three days last week and now she has her appitite back, but for the last couple of days she's been out of sorts, lathargic and really can't be bothered doing anything (head looking at the floor), fast breathing (not panting) and front shoulder twitching when she's laying down. And her tummy is now feeling hard and bloated. Also in my area of Chorley in Lancashire, we have a problem with tap water containing the cryptosporidium bug. I've been gining her boiled and bottled water since we got the news about tap water.
I took my dog Elle to my local vets, who was initially worried about further pyometra infection until she came back from the scan and told me that my dog was infact pregnant, and just generally run down and tired as well as being a little confused to what was happening to her. The vet gave me some advice and Elle is looking much better.
