What exactly is she doing? Is she just panting? I have gone through two litters and both times she was panting for longer than 10 hours and there was no pushing then. My dogs panted for about a day then had their puppies no problem.
1st stage of labor is called Nesting Labor. This is before actual contractions and can last as long as 48 hours. This is heavy paning, they usually stop eating and they nest. You then go into contractions. However, Bulldogs are automatic C sections. You need to be working with the vet. They do not whelp on their own due to the size of the head at birth.
What breed is your dog? I noticed you had a Bulldog on your picture? Just went back in case i missed something, and sure enough I did. Have you contacted your vet yet? I hav'nt heard of a free-whelping Bulldog yet around here. How long have you been beeding dogs?
Well we are at pup # 6. And yes she free whelps, Her mother did also. She is a Bulldog. Long day. She didn't start pushing until today. I just figured everyone would know that she was just in stage one yesterday when i posted OT. Thanks, I will post pics soon!
