Question
Posted by: miniMe | 2008/08/29

Could my dog eat her newborn puppy?

My dog had her second litter 2 days ago. She had 2 puppies during the day, perfectly healthy. She still had a puppy in her tummy by 10pm that night,but looked calm. The next morning, her tummy was flat but no third puppy... I' m wondering if there were complications with the third puppy, maybe stillborn and the mommy ate it. What do you think?

Dear miniMe

Maybe she got carried away while eating the placenta
