The Pom puppy
inside the uterus had a runny nose.
The water bag hung loose but no puppy was delivered
naturally for the past 50 minutes. I cancelled my puppy vaccination at
the breeder farm in Pasir Ris and rushed down the evening rush hour
traffic of the Central Expressway to the Surgery.
The breeder said, "This is the second time that you have cancelled my
vaccination" she noted. I was to vaccinate her puppies at 6
p.m. However, she understood that emergency Caesarians come first and
was not angry that a competitor had again inconvenienced her.
Would the puppy be dead by now? It took more than ten minutes to
put the bitch under general anaesthesia. It could not be faster
as she was fighting against the gas.
This was the first birth for the Pomeranian and she looked very
healthy. A good layer of fat to take her through pregnancy.
The first puppy was black and was in a breech presentation and had already gone into
the birth canal. I had to put my finger into the uterine body and
manipulated her towards the front of her uterus. Not so easy as
to pop her out from the uterine body incision as in some Caesarian
delivery cases. I broke the amniotic sac membrane. Clear fluid
gushed out followed by a tail. The backside was too big.
What to do with a tail. If I pulled it, would the rest of the back
side follow? If not, would I break off? A normal tail would be
stronger than that. I dared not take the risk. I put my
finger into the uterus to feel for the two hind legs. Were they
extended and therefore obstructing the smooth out flow of the back of
I felt the legs. Twisted the backside a bit. One leg appeared after
some time. Would the puppy be asphyxiated by the fluid in its lungs
since I took more than a few seconds to bring out the puppy?
It was limp. I held it in both hands, spread my feet apart and swung
its head down. Two times. Its nose discharged a sticky fluid. I swung
its head two more times. More nasal discharge. Its lungs must be water
clogged. Would it be still alive? Its tongue was bright maroon
red and that was a good sign.
I rubbed the back of its neck, behind the neck. Rubbed and rubbed
using the cotton swab. Head downwards. A small inaudible cry. That was
after ten minutes since the Caesarian delivery. At least, it was
handed it to Nurse Ann who continued to rub. I needed to operate
as short a time as possible.
The second puppy was bigger than the first. A full golden coat of
fur. Mum had grey coat. I pulled it out easily as it was
in a face presentation. As I pulled it out, the water bag at the
vagina came out with it. This puppy cried immediately on breaking the
The first puppy was obstructing the birth of the second one. It
probably was starting to breathe and had inhaled the amniotic fluid
clogging its lungs. If it was to live, it must be delivered by
emergency Caesarian immediately. At least 50 minutes had passed since
the breeder called. He had to coordinated his transport as his
transport man was out.
If the breeder had waited another three hours or overnight, the
puppies would be stressed and might not have survived. The puppy
with the water bag protruding from the bitch's back side was very
ready to breathe and would have died if the Caesarian was delayed an
hour more . The
breeder's face lit up as he said, "Such big puppies!"
It was hard to imagine how this bitch would be able to deliver
naturally two healthy, vigorous and gigantic puppies. I hope she would
be a good mother as some first-time bitches don't know what to do with
