Counting puppies before they're born

Published: 17 Feb 2019

It's possible with x-ray, once a bitch is past 45 days of gestation/pregnancy, to count the number of foetuses in the uterus. This is because the baby skeletons have started to mineralise and therefore show up on an x-ray aaaannnnd... can be counted!
