What do I do when my chihuahua goes into labor? It's her first litter.
Chihuahuas due mostly to their size often have birthing complications that if not dealed with correctly can lead to death of the pup and/or the mom. You need to know how to take care of your dog and know how to tell she is ready for labor so you can be with her. You also need to know what to expect during labor so if something goes wrong you can call the vet. Sometimes the situation is too serious to waste precious time to call and wait for the vet so it would be a good idea to know what to do in certain situations.
