History

A 3-year-old 36.1-kg (79.4-lb) sexually intact female Golden Retriever was presented to the University of Georgia Veterinary Teaching hospital 54 days after mating. The bitch had had 1 previous litter, delivering 8 pups without complications. During the last estrous cycle in which the bitch was mated, a single assessment of its serum progesterone concentration was performed, the result was consistent with ovulation (5 ng/mL; reference range, 4 to 8 ng/mL), and mating took place later that same day. Both animals had current vaccination and deworming status and, on the basis of negative results for card agglutination tests, were free
