Save - thanks for all the advise! I've got my basket of supplies all ready, including everything you stated. I have two Whelping videos I've watched over and over and over
My main concern now is just When! Of course I work and took today off as soon as her temp dropped. So I have to try and juggle my normal work life in as well. I've just read over and over and told by my vet that once the temp dropped, it would be 12 to 24 hours. But when it went up this afternoon to 99.2 (it was 98.6 this morning) I was puzzled. My Vet told me this was the process and she was proceding. He said that the temp only drops for 12 hours or less then returns to normal. So am I correct in thinking she will deliver anytime between today and tomorrow?

Best of luck, and keep us posted.
Do you know how much time? Is it still 12 to 24 hours?

That is entirely up to your bitch.

They don't read the books or watch the vids.

I would definately say.....expect puppies soon!!! The main thing to look for is the behaviors and such. That is a sure sign. Keep us updated.

Why do you think she'll need a c-section? I know there is always that possibility and my vet is on call for me if I have problems and he has givin me all the quidelines on when to call. His instructions were if after 4 hours of contractions and no pup- CALL. If after 2 hours and no second pup - CALL If 10 minutes of a pup crowning - CALL.

I agree, that the possibiliy is definately there. I breed Chihuahuas and Pomeranians. I have had to have C-sections on all of my bitches---both breeds.

NO NO NO.

DO NOT let your bitch go for more than an HOUR in active labor with hard contractions.

4 hours and you will have a dead bitch.

Yeah, definately no more than an hour in hard labour. Wait any longer (especially with a small dog) and you will be in trouble.

Thanks for the info. I'm soooo hoping everything goes ok with her and she doesn't need a c-section. How accurate are ultra sounds? I had one done 2 - 3 weeks ago and my vet did one free of charge just to see the pups. He didn't shave her or lay her out, just did it while standing. We only seen two pups. But she's pretty big and when feeling her belly. we seem to feel more than two pups in there! Also I showed a breeder friend of mine who's been breeding 30 years and she also said she look like she's carrying more than two.
