OK, one of my dogs (Snowball) is 60 days pregant. This is her (and mine) first litter. So for the past 3 days I've been taking her temp morning and night. Yesterday morn it was 99.7. I thought "OK, here we go!" Then by 1 pm, it was 100.2, then by evening 100.4. This morning, I took it and it was 98.9. So we moved her inside. (Never has been an inside dog.) At about 11 am, it was 101, and now, at 2:30 pm it was 100.3. Could the stress of moving inside spike the temp up that much?
Should I call the vet? I know the temp increses in the evening, but by that much? Or am I taking her temp too early? ( I've been doing it around 9-10 am when I feed them) Is this the "real deal"?
She is eating fine, and acting fine. Sleeping and panting a bit more though.
Thanks!

Hello, her temp all day today has been around 99.9-100º. This morn it was 99.7, this afternoon after comming inside from going potty it was 100.1, thats the highest its been today. Last time I checked at 4:30, it was 99.9.
She is panting pretty hard, last night she was pretty sleepy, but is getting more restless and uncomfortable. She wasnt to interested in her food last night, but ate. Was even less interested this morning, but ate it all after about 1 hour. She's licking herself a bit more, and is pooping/peeing more too. (Already pooped twice today, normally poos every other day)
I did feel some slight contractions last night, and felt a pup's heartbeat!!!!! Felt a pup kinda moving around earlier today!!!!
We did call a vet to have them on call incase anything happens.

This is WRONG WRONG WRONG!!!!

You could lose ALL Of your puppies if the placentas have begun to separate, and she has not gone into active labor.



The rise in temperature back to 101, after a drop below 98 I WOULD CONSIDER AN EMERGENCY!!!! Bitches this close to whelping should NEVER have a temp over 100.

This bitch needs to be LOOKED at, if she were mine, she most likely would have already had a SECTION!!!

please please do NOT ignore this, it could be VERY VERY SERIOUS!!

My dog Just had a litter...well 13 weeks ago .. and I had her sleeping on our porch in the morning and I checked her temp and she had dropped to 97 and I brought her back in my room and her temp rose to 101 and she didnt whelp till Thursday (her temp seemed to rise and fall between then) but I think due to her not likeing me sticking stuff up her butt It could never be perfectly acurate. . (I began to check her temp in her butt and her armpit and compare and In the end I was right about her going to whelp) Her temp dropped again on wed (both her butt :p and armpit temp ) and stayed that way untill thursday morning when she whelped. It may just be a mistake in how your taking her temp (not far enough in ...to far :confused: ) . All my dogs puppies lived no problems .. Im not saying your dog is the same as mine but if your vet said she is fine then I guess we will see. Let me know how it goes.

The vet has to SEE the bitch to make an acurate diagnosis! Not just an over the phone thing

No pups yet. :( She is more restless today though. I have her ouside for a bit, and she was digging around her house, and last night everytime I checked on her she was in a different positon or a different spot. She was even less interested in her food this morn. She DID eat after a while, but even then she just wasnt that interested. Temp still hasnt came down. Wants to keep hovering around 100.

I am telling you that temp going up and staying there would worry me TERRIBLY.

Please, if you don't have puppies by the morning, TAKE HER IN TO SEE YOUR VET.

This sounds scarey. Dixie had alot of flexibility in her temp, at first, but once the panting started, there was no slowing down!

SOUNDS(and I may be wrong) but it sounds like labor started, but no pups are comin.

Gosh, I seriously hope everything is ok. No one has heard anything yet??

OMG...........................................Now I am gonna worry all day.

Ok, I've got a quick question- besides the temp thing, does everything sound like its going fairly normal? Everyone else I've talked to said yes, but I want some more opinion.
We do have an appointment for the vet Tues (thinking the pups would be born by now, to have thier dewclaws removed), but if nothing is hapining by morn, I WILL get her in tomorrow!
Thanks everyone for your help, and I'll keep everyone posted!
Also, could it be that I am off on my days by any chance? We dont know EXCATLY when she was bred. I mean, we do, but were not sure if it "took" or not. We estimate today to be day 62.
Thanks again!

Didnt you say the night before she started panting heavy???I dont recall for sure, and dont have time to go and re read, but if she started panting that is usually it.


Im no breeder, have only had one litter, but it sounds as if maybe she started, then stopped, which isn't good.
