I know I am going to be told to take her to a vet . And I will as soon as I can get a hold of the vet. But I need to ask my question anyways.. My dog had 5 puppies yesterday. The whelping went good with no problems. She is nursing and taking care of the but about 5 hours after she stopped having pups she started panting and breathing kinda heavy I do not feel any puppies inside her. She is eating and drinking but I think she is dehydrated cause when I pull the skin up on her neck is does not go down automatically like it is suppose to. Until I can get her into a vet is there anything i can give her that wont hurt her or the pups. I have pedialyte will that help her?
If you haven't seen the vet already, yes pedilyte will work great. It really helps. my guess is she is probably a bit tired also. Did you have an x-ray before the pups were born? If not I would reccomend a vet visit to make sure all plecentas and pups passed.
