Close Call – New Litter

In a previous litter we had a case where the mother ripped
the umbilical cord leaving a severe tear in the puppy’s
stomach. We freaked out and lost the puppy. This situation
happened again yesterday morning however after the last
time I watch the births very carefully. This time we dumped
corn starch on the stomach (as well as the rest of the kitchen)
and that seemed to stop the bleeding. I held her and kept her
warm and still for about a half an hour adding additional starch
as needed. When we were convinced that the bleeding had
stopped we carefully cleaned her off and applied Super Glue
to the wound. After that had dried thoroughly we put the
puppy bach with her mother. I am happy to say that today the
puppy is in great shape.http://www.geocities.com/4dogs.geo/puppies.html

Just wanted to pass on the experience in case anyone might find
it helpful.
