    Default False pregnancy?

    Hi,

    I'm new on here so I hope you guys can help me. I have two bulldogs, Ah-Bo male and Lily female. I had Ah-Bo since he was 3 months, he is 7 months now. Lily I purchased her two weeks ago from a pet store where she spent one and a half years locked up in a cage. The shop keeper was planing to breed her but was unsuccessful due to her weight. I offered him twice the going price because she was so gentle and friendly.

    Anyway, last week I noticed her teats were getting better and now all the other signs are showing. I was sure it was a false pregnancy because the reason the shop keeper sold her to me was because she didnt get pregnant when he A.I her around one and a half month ago. My question is, could she actually be pregnant?. If she is, it's not good news for me, I did and do not intend to breed because Im worried about the safety. Im in China, its hard to find a good vet so C-Section is risky.

    What do I do?

    I am of no help directly bc I don't breed. But I wanted to thank you for saving Lily from that horrible pet shop keeper. Thank God you came along and had the means to take her from that bad man!!! Thank you thank you!!! Maybe these people can help?! @Sherry @Davidh @desertskybulldogs

    To be honest I only managed to save her but there were plenty other dogs there, not bulldogs. If she is pregnant, he will kick himself for selling her to me. She did have some skin issues due to the damp warm condition, also lack of sunlight. I bathed her in medication, put her on a raw diet so she is healing quickly and her hair is growing back and the rash is almost gone. She just needs to loss a little weight and she'll be fine.

    You are in a pickle my freind. Sounds like a rough road ahead. I hope things work out for you and your female. It is possible to free whelp but not recomended. I wish I had some kind of magic wand to give you a great alternative, but I don't, I will be praying for you and that poor bully that needs someone so desperately. I can advise you to watch lots of Youtube videos , bulldogs giving birth. I did deliver 11 puppies, but I wanted them. Your case is quite different .

    I'm clueless as well... my Bella had a scheduled C-section. I guess the first thing you need to do is find out if it's a false pregnancy, but I have NO info on that. Good luck & I will be praying for you guys...

    First, bless you for taking her and giving her a loving home. You might want to get an ultrasound done to see if you can see pups in there in then go from there. If she is prego, then I would just try to find the best bully vet you can and hope for the best. If you try to whelp them yourself and she has a water puppy, that one could get stuck and kill mama and the rest of the pups.
    Have a Great Bully Day.

    Thank you for saving her.

    After she would be six weeks pregnant, which sounds like you are close, an X-ray can be done. Let us know and we will try to help guide you as much as possible.

    Sherry: It's true I hope she's not pregnant because I don't have the experience to look after new mum and puppies and I only just got her, so to loose her now would be heart breaking. However, if she is pregnant and able to deliver the puppies by c-section or natural birth, I and my family would be over the moon. My wife and I are trying for our own baby, if it all works out, we'll have baby and puppies running around the house . I will call a few more vets in my area to see if any of them can do a c-section. So far none of them have the skill or equipment for this, they dont even have x-ray or ultra sound!.

    My family is also planing to keep all the puppies because firstly, I doubt I'll be able to find anyone who will care and provide everything a bulldog needs, most people can't afford the cost of food and vet bills here.

    Anyways, I will keep updating to let you all how things go.

    Thanks guys for helping

    Oh my goodness I love her!!!! shes beautiful!! She doesn't really look like it too much in these photos....possible... But after six weeks is the only real way to tell by looking. Maybe in a week some new photos will tell the tale.
