Customer Question
I have a bengal...

I have a bengal cat that had 3 litter the last one around 9 hours ago. I know she has more in there. My breeder friend said it is very normal for Bengals to take up to 2 days to deliver them all

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the Bengal?

Had 3 kittens

Veterinarian's Assistant: Where does the kitten seem to hurt?

She does not hurt I know there is at least one more baby in there and here labor has stopeed

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. No obvious pain. What is the kitten's name?

Meka

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Meka?

No, she's normal....1 year 5 months old

Hello again,

I have worked out an answer for you below.

1. While prolonged labours can occur I have to say that I find a nine hour gap of great concern, you could be putting the unborn kittens lives at risk in delaying. Personally I draw the line in the sand at six hours, beyond that I ask my clients to come down to the clinic at once for an examination and possible oxytocin shot to get labour going again.

2. The best advice is to call a local vet without delay, even if this means using an ER vet.

3. But in any case I should be available online for you the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me if your cat's condition changes in any way or you would like to talk things over with me further.

Regards,

Dr Scott
