PLEASE DO NOT REPLY TO THIS AND TELL ME I SHOULD HAVE DONE MY RESEARCH FIRST!!! I AM LOOKING FOR NORMAL AND ABNORMAL SIGNS IN DOGGY LABOR. THE DOG I AM CONCERNED ABOUT IS MY MOTHERS DOG THAT I HAVE BEEN CARING FOR THE LAST FEW DAYS. MY MOTHER HAS DONE ALL OF HER RESEARCH, AND KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT TO LOOK FOR AND TO EXPECT! HOWEVER, SHE HAD TO LEAVE ON AN EMERGENCY AND LEFT THE CARING TO ME. THE DOG WILL NOT BE 63 DAYS UNTIL THIS MONDAY (1ST) BUT I ALSO KNOW THAT IT CAN HAPPEN ANY DAY NOW. TONIGHT WHILE I WAS CHECKING HER TEMP THERE WAS SOME YELLOWISH GOOEY MUCUS LOOKING STUFF COMING OUT OF HER. I KNOW THAT WHEN SHE WAS ABOUT 30 DAYS IN GESTATION SHE HAD A POSSIBLE BLADDER INFECTION, BUT A URINE SAMPLE WAS NEVER COLLECTED FOR THE VET. SHE HAD JUST PEED OUTSIDE, SO I DIDN'T KNOW IF THAT ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT. IF IT IS SOMETHING TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT I WILL DEFINATELY TAKE HER TO THE VET, BUT IF IT IS NORMAL CAN SOMEONE PLEASE INFORM ME?? I DO NOT WANT TO TAKE HER TO THE VET FOR SOMETHING THAT IS COMPLETELY NORMAL AND FINE. OF COURSE THE VET IS NOT OPEN UNTILL MONDAY UNLESS I GO TO A E-VET WHICH CAN BE VERY PRICEY!
i don't think you have anything to worry about. as long as the dog looks and acts normal. if she is panting and going in circles shes in labor. but just watch her she will let you know if shes having trouble, she will welp constantly. just try to keep calm while being around her, she could be in labor for hours, and that is normal, especially if its her first. good luck, it is a very fun, but scary time!
