  • Just watch her. She will be able to do it on her own. Just be there to help if something goes wrong.

  • Let her do it. Just like in humans, birth for dogs is a natural bodily function. She will know what to do. Just make sure she has a quiet, secure place and if she doesn't break open the amniotic sac shortly after the birth of each pup on her own then just tear it open enough to let the pup breathe but don't take it off... leave that for her to do so she can bond. Your dog will take care of the rest :)

  • We had to help her with every litter she had because she is older and eww but when we got her she had very little teeth and she cant get the sac their born in open! so we had to open it as well as cut their cords.

  • she was in my closet on some dirty clothes and panting so I moved her to our bath tub with a towel and wen I picked her up I guess her water broke or she peed?

  • Okay, so just open the sacs and cut the cords once the afterbirth is born. No biggie :)

  • If she has that much trouble giving birth, I would suggest getting her fixed. Good luck and find an emergency vet in case something goes wrong.
