HI, I am totally new to this forum and am happy that I could get to know more things about Rotties. I have 4 females and a male rottie. last month one of my females, Boxy, littered, the first litter in my kennel. There were 8 live pups and one still born. The second day they were born one after the other the pups kept dying and I lost the entire litter. I was totally upset and am yet to find a reason for it. Boxy is quite healthy. Would somebody please throw light on this. Vets say it could be premature, they were born on the 60th and 61st day of last mating.
You should have your dog checked for canine herpes- that can lead to fading puppy syndrome where you can lose whole litters of puppies in a matter of days. Sorry to hear about your puppies, my thoughts are with you. Let us know if you find out anything.</BLOCKQUOTE>
I looked on the internet and read that they can also have a genetic defect that isnt physically apparent at birth that can cause them to die, or a virus transmitted at birth. I hope you find what caused this and let us know.</BLOCKQUOTE>
