Now her temperature has been within that pre-labor level (98.6-101*F) that we usually see in those final 24 hours before the pups arrived, but none of the signs she is showing really support active labor. If the pups have dropped down further and she is very distended with them, it may be looming close to that time. Still we'd expect to see some nesting behavior
, contractions, and/or fluid/mucus being passed from the vulva.
Still if she is uncomfortable and not eating
/drinking properly, then I do think it is worth having her checked. We don't want her blood sugar getting too low nor her getting dehydrated (Just to note you can try to boost her blood sugar if you are worried it is low by rubbing glucose/pancake/karo syrup or honey on her gums). Both could lead to a failure to develop milk but also isn't good for her. If she is seen by her vet, they can treat the soft stools if you haven't used those supplements we discussed before. They can also scan her belly to make sure everything is normal and the pups are fine. If there is any worry or they think she is going to have an issues giving birth
, then a c-section may be advisable.
Overall, based on the signs you noted, they are not convincing of labor. But if she is acting uncomfortable and feels poorly, then we would be safest having her checked. The vet can make sure all is well with her pregnancy and treat the loose stools to ensure we avoid any complications for Neeyna
Please take care,
