Dachshund Questions

A Visitor asked the following question on 3/25/2007
My Dachshund is 4 years old and has had 3 litters, but her spring heat has been delayed by about 30 days now, what could be the cause? Is there encouragement for 'planned pregnancy' Thanks you in advance for your response!

3/26/07 She could have many thing wrong, but again she may just be late, I would say she might need some time before she is bred again, you need to feed her VERY good puppy food, like IAM's ( Puppy )before she is bred and all thu the PG, she could be very low on certain Vitamins, specially calcium, when a dog is PG all the calcium from the mother is given to the puppies, so this maybe the problem, but you need to take her in for a checkup at your vets office to be sure what is going on...never hurts, better to be on the safe side.
