And so it begins! on July 6, 2017, our very first litter got us off to a rough start. KK was a fantastic mom but unfortunately, when labor stalled, it was recommended we pursue an emergency c-section. Our vet of 15 years (actually was a repro vet!) was unfortunately delayed just after they started the anesthesia so the pups (5 gorgeous pups) were under anesthesia for quite a long time (with the tech having to reapply betadine numerous times before vet was able to get back to the room to begin the c-section). Tragically, this was just too much anesthesia for the pups. To this day, the memory of those beautiful pups trying to be revitalized lingers in our mind. Truly beautiful girls and a boy. However, miracle of miracles, one puppy survived! The Mighty Macintosh was already halfway out the canal (the vet had felt his nose at first examination when we arrived) helping him to avoid being over anesthetized. This spunky singleton survived and defied all odds! And, praise be to God, mama KK was fine as well. Since then, we have found a vet who specializes in Brachycephalic breeds and we strongly recommend that pug owners always choose a vet who has a vast amount of experience in dealing with brachy breeds and pugs.
