If that were my bitch, I would have been RUNNING to the vet when her temp spiked back up to 101.

You are now 3 days out from this temp spike, with restless behavior, and off food.

I would STRONGLY ADVISE you to take your bitch to the vet FIRST THING IN THE MORNING.

DO NOT talk to them on the phone.

DO NOT rely on advice you get off the net.

If in fact your bitch DID start labor 3 days ago when her temp dipped, and then spiked, she is in extreme danger of becoming septic by this time.

Please, see your vet FIRST thing in the morning.

Better safe than sorry.

A quick update here, I moved her back outside this morning, and as of 3 pm, her temp is 99.2. I will take it again at 4:30, and post what it is.

These are ABNORMAL TEMPS FOR A BITCH AT 63 DAYS.

For your bitch's sake, I surely hope that 1) she is not full of dead puppies and sepsis, and 2) she does not end up whelping outside, alone, with no help.

Please, bring her BACK inside, and take her to your vet FIRST THING IN THE MORNING.

Demand an abdominal palpation, blood work, urinalysis, and a vaginal swab to check for any putrefaction or discharge.

you must take her too the vet
at the moment it seems as though she went into labour 3 days ago and there is no pups as yet!
if this is true then she will not now give birth normally
she needs to see a vet

you should be trying to reduce stress as much as possible!

I'm wondering if the OP had an accidental pregnancy and never studied or learned about whelping procedures and what to do/expect?

I WILL take her to the vet in the morning. I will NOT move her back inside. (Well, not quite yet anyway) I think it was the move inside that caused the temp spike. She has never been an inside dog, and it was my HUGE mistake bringing her in, causing un-needed stress. She will NOT be alone! I will camp out next to her if need be!
I did feel the pups move when I was out there at 6:30. Her temp at that time was 99.5. (Isnt suppose to rise a bit in the evening like humans?)
YES, this was an accidental breeding. I just found out she was pregnant 3 weeks ago. I've been trying my best to learn as much as I can in those short weeks. I'm sorry if I seem like an idiot, but I'm just trying to do the best that i can. I have witnessed/helped in 4 births before. Two were dogs, 2 were cats. I know what to expect when it comes to that. As for the days before the birth, I'll admit, I probably dont know as much as I should. I'm just trying to do the best I can. So if anyone could pass on some more good advice, it will be greatly appreciated!
I will probably keep all the pups. If I have to give them away, you can rest assured that the people looking to adopt will have a tough time. They will probably go do either dog mushers or experianced husky owners. No first time dog owners, no first time husky owners, no one with little kids, no one with a hectic job, no one in a apartment, etc. I guess in my eye no one is good enough.
As for the outside, right now she just has her regular house. The bottom is insulated with 4" of styrofoam (her house has more insulation then ours!), and has a rubber flap on the door. Once the pups are born, and Snowy settles down, we will move her back inside. When the pups are 4 weeks old they will move back outside. We will have about a 12'x12' pen, with a enclosure in our garage.
I really do appreciate everyone's help and advice. Trust me, I too am worried. I have probably been shaking for the past day. I cant stop crying from worry. She WOULD have been to the vet Sat or yesterday, but I cant seem to convince my parents that there IS something wrong. I will keep everyone posted, and most of all Thank You!

DO NOT plan to move a bitch just after whelping. This will upset EVERYTHING.

BITCHES SHOULD NOT WHELP OUTSIDE....

Honestly,She needs to be inside. She should not whelp outside, it is a nasty dirty thing, and outside will add to the mess.

Many problems can arise from being outside, dirt, dirty, getting lost esp in the middle of the ni8ght, if you are not there, what if something goes wrong.

No one here thinks you are an idiot, but when you post being concerned, you make everyone else concerned and worry, we all give you advice that YOU SHOULD FOLLOW and you basically ignore it.

Oh, ok you "address" that you "heard" us, but dont follow what needs to be done from people who know and have been there before.

So you are the last one who should be getting defensive, and should be the first to get that mom inside, and whelp those puppies........Or call emergency vets and take her in.


I mw/ red on this one/iwillhushipnow!

Ok, another update on Snowy- her temp as of 9:30 is 98.6! She is panting/breathing somewhat hard, and is digging more.
I really dont want to move her inside, because I'm scared that she will "abort labor" again. I'm pretty sure thats what caused it. As soon as I moved her back out-her temp started dropping.
I suppose I can move her in and monitor her temp, and if it starts going back up, move her outside.
Does that agree with everyone?
Also, I think I have all the welping supplies, anyone think of anything else? I have:
lots of clean towels
dental floss
iodine
rubbing alcohol
cotton balls (you never know)
scale
sterilized scissors
Nutri-Cal
notebook and pen
watch
ribbon to identify pups
vaseline
flashlight
cardboard box with heating pad
camera (if I have time!)
syrenges
bulb dropper
Thanks

Do not try to tie cords. They should be crushed to sever them. Ditch the dental floss.

I had a rescue bitch in once who decided to whelp early under our deck ! When I heard the first pup , I crawled under, got the pup and when I took it to the whelping pen, Mom was more than pleased to follow and had the rest of the pups there. Please... bring your girl in !!!! Do you have anything set up ??
