More breeding problems
We had mentioned that the actual act of canine intercourse is called the ‘tie.’ Some-times it can happen that the male and the bitch are ‘stuck’ for over an hour. This is not normal. You may recall (week before the last) that we made mention of the constricting vaginal rings (muscles) which help maintain the male’s erection. If the situation arises whereby there is no relaxation of the vaginal muscles, then the blood cannot flow back out of the engorged penis. The animals become anxious and frustrated and begin to pull against each other. This only serves to aggravate the situation.
