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
You should definatly not be moving her in and out of the house like you plan to. She should be IN THE HOUSE most of my dogs live their lives outdoors and when my bitches are ready to welp or weeks before that time I bring her in my home. This does not sound good at all.

You moving her in and out and such is probley what is stressing her out. If you would just leave her be in the house and let her settle she would be fine. Honestly you should have brought her in when you found out she was going to have puppies 3 weeks ago.

Ok, so how should I crush the cords? With my fingernail/finger? I cut my finger nails really short though....
I also brought her in, 15 mins after comming in, her temp was 99.3. Move her back out, within 15 mins, its back down to 98.6º.
She dragged me outside to her house. I had to drag her inside to mine.
And for moving her in and out- I moved her in when temp hit 98.3. It went up over 100 for 3 days. I moved her outside, it droped down to 98.6 in less then 9 hours.
I do have something set up inside, in the basement. I gated off a corner, put her box in it (on top of 1 1/2" of styrofoam insulation), and covered the floor with pine bedding. (The stuff they put in horse stalls). We do have a space heater too that I plan on using.

*Sigh* Pick one spot for her to welp and keep her there. Quit moving her so much your going to stress her out and thats extremly bad for her right now. i wouldn't use pine bedding either. The fumes from it alone are bad for the puppies to breath into their little lungs. Its just not the safest way to go.

I have a whelping box and I lay down dog beds in it and cover those with fuzzy faux fur blankets that I clean everyday. It is also insulated and warm and comfortable and safe.

YOU CANNOT HAVE PUPPIES ON SHAVINGS!!!!

Puppies must have bedding such as indoor outdoor carpet, etc, something they can get footing on.

Shavings are a DISASTER, the bitch will consume too much trying ot keep them clean, etc.

If you don't CHANGE what you are doing, you are not going to have any puppies to worry about.

Hope you get her to the vet TODAY.

NO SHAVINGS !!!! Bad for both Mom and pups ! Those shavings will cover the wet pups and be a mess. Mom may not ever want to clean them up and eat the placentas. Blankets or large towels... they get soaked !

Oh my, I can not believe what I am reading.
Please Please Please take her to the vet as soon as possible. Has she lost her mucus plug yet? Is she having any discharge, and if so what color is it?
My female had a litter of puppies in March and it was both her's and my first litter. She showed the signs of early labor and I had her sleep with me, and had her close by at all times. That night she was showing very light contractions, and by the next morning she started panting and couldn't get comfortable. She then began pushing with contractions which, if they are up they look like they are tring to poop. After watching and seeing she wasn't producing a pup I RUSHED her to the Vet. I am so glad I did because she had to have a c-section and if I would have waited I could of lost not only the puppies, but also the mom too.
Do you know any of the warning signs to look for? I was lucky I made sure to research everything that goes on during whelping both good and bad because if I hadn't I could of been responsible for the death of those wonderful little pups and my Libby Lou.
If she is panting, and you said she was having light contractions and that was a day or so ago, please take her to the vet. Those are signs she is in labor and if she hasn't started active labor then she needs your help. It's better for the vet to see her and her not to be in labor yet then it would be for you to make the wrong decision to wait and risk her life and the life of the puppies.
Good luck and I hope everything is ok, and everyone is healthy and safe.

I dont think she liked the advice, because she isn't listening.

I pray to GOD that those pups are safe, and momma, and they all be placed in a home where they will be taken care of, no matter what happens.


Poor, poor momma and babies.

Doesnt this just F%$# a day up??
Happy Monday!

Ditto, I am afraid to visit this thread, afraid I am gonna see what went wrong.

But hey, who are we to judge, after all, she came on asking for help, and we tried to give her help, it is out of our hands.

I hate feeling so helpless on this side of the computer.

I think of my babies, and man, what could have happened w/out the people's help from Cahzzy, and TG for you guys.

Just keep praying guys, and after the Lord clears mom and the babies, maybe he can send them to where they will be taken care of in a great way.

Thats all we can do.

All the owner keeps doing is moving her in and out and in and out over and over again. She's upsetting the bitch so much it's ridiculous. The pups are going to end up dead if she doesn't listen to the GOOD advice she's getting.

Keep in mind that the OP lives with her/his parents and it's not always easy to make them understand sometimes.

I hope there is an update soon, I'm worried too :(

I know we shouldn't judge but when advice is asked for, given and not taken then what are we to do, if someone told me to get my dog to the vets because they were in danger I would run to the vets not sit back and put my dog outside, regardless if this person is living with parents, there is still things that they could do, like for starters tell the vets what is going on
