Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
I am so sorry to hear about your situation but, since this is Mica's second litter, it is unlikely that she would have trouble. The vomiting is not unusual due to the hormonal changes going on. The rule of thumb is that if Mica is pushing NON STOP for more than 1 hr, then there is a problem that you will need to call around for a friend to take you and Mica to the ER vet since this may indicate that a puppy is stuck. If MIca is pushing and then stops and relaxes and then starts pushing again, this is all very normal. YOu will have to be patient and wait until her system is ready to release the puppies. It is not unusual for delivery to take 24 hrs. I know it is hard to wait and watch but, like I said, if Mica is not pushing NON STOP for more than 1 hr, this is still normal and safe for her and the puppies.
Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.Sincerely, ***** *****
