Why is over breeding bad?
Overbreeding is bad because it puts a female dog’s body in danger. Indeed, nursing a litter of puppies is tiring, let alone several in a row without a year to rest. But more than the dog itself, over-breeding does also affect the breed these overbred dogs belong to.
What are the effects of over breeding dogs?
Common health problems of overbreeding include:
- Eye problems and hearing loss.
- Joint problems, such as hip dysplasia.
- Respiratory issues, such as in the case of flat-faced breeds.
- Birthing difficulties.
Can a dog die from having too many litters?
Anyway, depends on the dog. 3 litters can bring a dog down, but almost always they come back with rest. However, many bitches can look fantastic and have zero ill effects even after having more than 3 litters. That would not be uncommon at all, to be just fine after multiple litters.
What happens if a dog has too many litters?
Dogs that have had many litters often end up with health problems. Don’t let this discourage you. If medical expenses will cost too much, or the dog will be neglected because of her problems, she may be a better fit for another home. But every dog deserves a good owner to take care of them and love them.
