Mrs. Marie Tandrya, is a high quality French Bulldog breeder which she sells in Switzerland for a pretty penny. A small breeder with a dozen dogs, two male reproducers, two retired females, two young females and six female reproducers. She keeps her females and buys the males.
Everything was going well for Jolie, a three-year-old bred and pregnant female when her back went out at around 1 month of gestation. It is her second gestation.
We were supposed to take X-rays to try to see the number of puppies a little later, but this episode had us moving up the date of the X-Rays to check the vertebrae, and.... one image of the lumbar vertebrae is not great.
We are not surgeons, but we can guess that the L2 vertebra is quite old because we have the impression of a lipping of the vertebrae (ossification) in the L1-L2-L3. Though she has puppies worth €2,000 in her belly, so what to do in the immediate urgency.
We do a shot of NSAIDs, but we want to avoid giving anti-inflammatory drugs for the duration of the gestation. So, we are trying the Mobility Supp TM all month long which gave good results. The gestation is coming to an end with 7 puppies delivered via caesarean section, alive and that were able to be sold. During that month the female moved normally.
Of course Jolie will be removed from reproduction because we had X-rays done on her father and the images are not good either so there is certainly a genetic transmission. For the moment, Mrs. Tandrya continues the Mobility Supp TM with cures of 15 days when the pain returns in order to place the female into retirement with someone who will take her in with knowledge of how and why.
