Hi.. She is a Pug. She had 4 pups, the last did not make it. She is eating well. (pedigree puppy mixed with an egg, or a little bit of cottage cheese) vet recommended. She doesn't seem to be having any problems nursing. I did go in and feel her teets.. they are a little hot, but not hard.
We did take her to TUFTS when she went into labor. Vet did ultrasound twice. After the third pup was born, she re-did the ultrasound, and told us one more. All placentas passed with pups.
We took the heating pad out today.. it was 92 here! And 85 in the house. She hasn't really had much of a discharge.
The panting started at onset of labor, around noon time Sunday. She had her first pup at 9:30 pm Sunday. It has continued since. Not heavy right now. She is trying to sleep. But when she is awake, it is heavy. Her temp is 102.2
Even though she is resting now, her breathing is still heavier than usual.
Pups are all nursing now also.
