Pictures of Pregnant Dam X-Rays

Whelping Puppies

The following are various x-rays of pregnant dams about to whelp. Some are outlined with the pups positions to help you better understand how to spot the puppies.

X-ray of puppies inside of a dam

This x-ray shows an example of why it is important to have radiographs taken of a pregnant dam. This dam only has two puppies inside of her and as a result the puppies have grown very large because of all of the extra room. This dam will need a c-section to get the puppies out. As soon as her temperature drops the vet will perform the procedure to ensure the safety of both the pups and the dam.
