IS it safe for my 13 year old Jack Russell to have puppies . She has been mating with another Jack? I am so worried that it harms her. She is in good health and still looks to be walked miles. HELP

13 year old dog having puppies NEW
by: Nick

I would highly be against that. If she is still going through seasons it could happen. Even though she is in great shape, a pregnancy and then caring for pups would put a huge strain on her body. Another option, would be to have her spayed now. Getting her spayed would also prevent her getting a very serious uterine infection seen in older females, called a pyometra. I know putting her through surgery at her age would be harder than if she was young, but a pregnancy, or a pyometra, or a Ceasarian section would be worse on her body.
