Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts ASAP
Hello, Welcome to Just Answer! I would be happy to help you with your pet today.
Are you still seeing active uterine contractions? Even though she is not pushing any pups out?
Is she crying or whimpering?
She is going to need to be taken to a veterinarian.
The amount of time that has elapsed between pups is now too long, especially if there are no visible uterine contractions.
She is considered clinical for dystocia at this point, and is going to need to go to the vet.
Is this her first litter?
The most common cause of dystocia in in dogs is uterne inertia. This is when the uterus is no longer responding. This can happen with the uterus is over-stretched by a large litter. This may likely be what the problem is here.
She could also have a fetus stuck in the birth canal.
She may also just have uterine inertia because of exhaustion.
She will need to be evaluated immediately.
I would take the pups she has already whelped with you in a box or crate with plenty of towels. This way she will not be psychologically distressed because of being separated from them.
I wish you good luck with her and the rest of the pups!
Please let me know how she does...
