Default Going crazy

Hello, we have a female Boxer that is about a year and a half, we had every intentions on breeding her and when she came into her second heat that is what we did, the sire is my boyfriends brother's dog so he is well known, however she is showing signs of being pregnant, teets swollen,gained weight she has even slowed down quite a bit but our vet said he does not feel anything in there, he said sometimes Boxers "hide" them?? And she has had 2 seizures since the breeding, again all test came back normal.we are very concerned and i'm wondering if anybody else has experienced anything like this? Please help

Have X-rays done to determine pregnancy and then terminate if you can. If your dog is having seizures it is probably going to be genetic and likely to be passed to the pups. Then spay her.

Warning- people are against Back Yard Breeders on this forum. You won't find anyone who supports your decision to breed your dog without proper health testing done on your dog and the sire. =/

My cat has epilepsy and there is no test that confirms it. We just treated it with phenobarbitol and it's now controlled. He is the product of an irresponsible breeder....

Thanks for adding unhealthy Boxer puppies to the overpopulation of Boxers already.

Also congrats on an underage mother. Warn your buyers they will probably have an epileptic dog, put them on spay/neuter contracts, then spay your girl. And have the sire be neutered also.

I have a female that has epilepsy she also is from a byb it is an endless issue you can figure the average monthly cost per dog at $35 between meds and vet visits if you can terminate the pregnancy do or at they very least warn future owners that they will have this cost monthly for the rest of their pups life
but I will give you a help for the seizers when you dog is having one put 1/4 teaspoon of honey on your finger and put it in her mouth it will stop the seizer in its tracks it however does not solve the underlying issue

What they said.

My suggestion would have been to do research before you decided to breed her. She's not even matured yet!

Go to the vet, get x-rays done to try and confirm the pregnancy. It's possible that she is having a phantom pregnancy (that the breeding didn't take). If this is the case, wait it out and have her spayed afterwards.

I have a feeling this post is not for real. So far everything she/he did with that boxer is wrong. And then seizures thrown into the mix. Suspicious IMHO

Naw.. that's what we call an internet Troll. They scan through posts on a forum and post something controversial looking to get people all riled up based on past posts.

It's possible...

I am going to respond to this as a genuine person asking for help.

Seizures can happen during pregnancy, it can be brought on by hormonal changes or dietary deficiencies in the body. It does not necessarily mean the dog has Epilepsy, it does however put your female at risk and she should be spayed in the future.

I have no idea how far along she is but I would suspect she is about 4 wks pregnant? You can have an ultrasound done to confirm pregnancy at about 30 days from the date of breeding. You can then have x-rays done at day 57 to get a head count of how many she will be having.

As other have mentioned, this site does not allow or promote BYB's but I wanted to answer your thread before it was closed. You are not helping the issues we face with our breed. If you havent done any health testing on your dog, then there is no way to know what genetic conditions they are passing along to their offspring.
