Question: Delivering Your Own Puppies
“My Irish Setter is going to have puppies. I’ve heard that Irish Setters have many puppies and that they die easily. I would like to deliver these puppies at my home but with this risk should I take her to the veterinarian when she is ready to give birth?”
If you have never had the experience or training with assisting the birth of puppies then it is highly recommended that you obtain the services of a veterinarian. This insures the highest safety and birth conditions of not only your pregnant Irish Setter, but for her puppies as well.
