this morning she was whining a little (not for a couple hours now though) and shes lying around almost like she doesnt feel good. shes licking herself but just her legs and her belly right behind her armpit. anytime i ever bred the bigger dogs, as soon as the whining started out came pups but she isnt doing anything now but jsut lying there. could she still maybe be in stage one? any ideas? my vet said just keep an eye on her but any suggestions would help put me at ease...maybe/hopefully
PS... ive put her in her whelping box a million times but she insists on being on my bed and wont stay in the box and is digging a little at my pillow. i think she wants to have them on my pillow even though this isnt very ideal for me but its replaceable so should i keep putting her in her whelping box and make her stay there or let her just pick a spot she feels comfortable at? i dont want to delay her birth by stressing her out. she scratched at my pillows and is sleeping again and i can see the puppies moving around in there. thanks
she started labor today at 11:10 am. first pup is doing great. second pup was breech and is gasping for air. i cleared his airways but hes still gasping. what can i do or will he work it out and be ok???
shes had 3 so far. all are doing great. her last on was almost 4 hours ago and she defenitly has 1 more maybe 2 in there. my sister came over and i think stressed her out and she just stopped. she isnt pushing or acting tired and i dont see any contractions. shes resting and cleaning her babies and shes not lathargic. my vet said she might just be tired and resting and to give her a couple more hours. what do you think? am i panicing, should i wait, is she maybe just taking a break and resting...4 hours seems like a long time.
She had one dead pup in there. The vet said it looks like it might of been dead a couple of days because she had a whole bunch of black sludge like stuff in her. Theyre keeping her tonight so i gotta bottle feed pups but we go get her tomorrow morning. One more question for everyone. Since she wont be with them tonight will she accept them again when she gets home after her c-section? Thanks so much everyone for all your help!!!
