I am so sorry to heart about Cloey Belle. I am very worried by your description. None of the vet clinics will help you?
She may not need a C section, sometimes an injection to strenghten contractions is all that is needed but if that does not work, she could need C section. I hope you can find a vet who will see her. We can hope that the one puppy was the only one, and she is not in distress because she is finished.
Yes, I would think about going to the emergency hospital. Perhaps an Xray will show there are not more puppies, or they could give the oxytocin
Honestly, I would. They should examine her, feel for more puppies, and maybe take an Xray. Perhaps she does not have any more, or if she does, the oxytocin may help. The only other thing is too keep watching her. If she is not in distress, if she will eat and drink, maybe there was only the one puppy.
I think there is only a very small chance she has a live puppy in her. If she is eating, she may be done with labor. If you look at her gums, are they pink in color?
Yes, black gums are normal pigment. It is good that the nonblack part is pink. It is a good sign she ran outside, too. Maybe she is done. Acting protective is normal, her hormones are the same as if she had puppies to care for and protect.
