help! dog in labor? Need to go to the vet? piog

Posted by   + Show Post

About a month ago my parents noticed their female dog was getting fat.  Turned out she was knocked up.  Not a big deal, they hoped one day she would be.  Anyway, this morning she began to go into labor but she hasn't had the babies yet.  How long does a dog take to give birth?  They tired to take her to the vet for a prenatal appointment and the vet said they don't do that for dogs (lol) and things will progress naturally.  

So, what are warning signs and such?  Or is this all day thing normal? 

Oh the dog is a pugamo (sp?) and the father is a pug.

2 moms liked this

A) she should have been spayed to avoid this....B) it will happen on its own, hopefully..... C) it can take a while, give her a quiet undisturbed place to rest and let nature do its thing. If she has not had them by today though, get her to a vet. The puppies can get stuck or one could be turned wrong or be too big.

 this is how  my female chihuahua did too

Quoting Tooth_Inspector:

My dog started acting really strange when she went into labor, she kept trying to hide. I led her to the bed we prepared for her and she delivered her first pup a half hour later. Just keep an eye on the pups after they come out, the mom wil l tear the sack off of them and clean them a bit, help her if she doesn't. Otherwise she should be able to deliver without vet help. Our dog delivered 7 pups like a champ! She was lab/golden mix

Yay more backyard bred pups by people who don't know what they are doing.

If she's been struggling or no pups have been born since she's gone into labour and it's been more than two hours, then get the poor dog to the vet.  Hopefully the pups are still alive and your parents' dog doesn't die.

Then, fix her.

Our dog went in to labor in the morning, had her first pup about 1. Finished up around 11 at night. We woke up and she pushed the last one out, sadly it was not alive. What breed is mom?

A pugamo..translated a mixed bred mutt.

Pugs have notoriously hard labours and births.  Very often they aren't able to have the pups on their own and need a C-Section.

I know that! She said dad was the pug. If she had said mom was the pug I would say VET no matter what. But I don't know what breed mom is.

Pugamo=American Eskimo Dog and a pug...

If the dad is the pug, how in the hell did this happened?  American Eskimo dogs aren't small. lol
