Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question. Just like an in person consult, I have a few questions of my own to help ensure I give you the best advice possible....

Is this her first litter?

Do you know how many puppies she has?

Are you positive that it's 62 days from the last breeding?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No it's her second litter but her last litter she only had 1 puppy. She has roughly 10 per xray and yes tomorrow will be 63 days she only had 1 tie it was a planned breeding
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
She is also very needy wants to be right next to me
Expert:  Lisa replied 1 year ago.

Thanks for the additional information. I really appreciate it.

It's not unusual for dogs who have already had one litter to go into labor at 62 days or 64 days, so it's possible that she's just in the starting moments of her whelping.

I'd just keep an eye on her...see if she begins nesting or shows any other signs of labor. If she shows any other troubling behaviors such as vomiting, diarrhea, or acting like she's having contractions with no actual puppies, then she needs to be seen by an emergency vet.

She did vomit this morning
Expert:  Lisa replied 1 year ago.

Vomiting once or twice in the early stages isn't surprising, but if she has more then I'd be concerned.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No she just vomited one time I thought the puppies stopped moving before labor though
Expert:  Lisa replied 1 year ago.

Not always. It really depends on the dog and how much room is in there.
