Cookie had not been at Pug Hugs Pug Rescue long before she needed to visit WVRC Waukesha’s ER to get help birthing her puppies. She had been actively pushing for several hours to no avail. Dr. Mayhew helped Cookie deliver one healthy pup but the others were not cooperating. Cookie’s contractions were strong, therefore waiting for the remaining puppies to be birthed naturally was the best course of action. By morning her pups had still not arrived, so Dr. Mallo performed a c-section to bring her other two puppies into the world.
Cookie and her puppies recovered well and were able to go home to continue resting and recovering.
