Hi, I am Dr. Denney. I am currently reviewing your post now. Please give me a few minutes to type my response. Thank you for trusting us with your question. This service is used for general information only and is no substitute for a veterinarian-patient relationship by examination.

The best advice I can give to you is to get her to an emergency clinic now. She most likely needs a C-section and you may lose her and the puppy if we do not get her help.

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

If no puppy after 1 hour of labor means the puppy is most likely stuck.

I wish I could do more here but she needs veterinarian care.

The puppy is breech and she's still pushing

The only recommendation I can make is that you need to take her to an emergency clinic now. If not you run the risk of Chiquita dying and the puppy (there is a good chance the puppy is dead already) I am very sorry, but please take her to a veterinarian clinic now.

Ok thank you for your help and time

You are very welcome good luck. I will say a prayer for her.

If this was helpful I would be most appreciative if you could take the time to rate my assistance so the site will credit me with helping you

Without a rating (the stars at the top) the site will not compensate me for helping you.

I am also here for additional questions you may have, just reach out to me here and I will be more than happy to assist you.

Kind regards,

Dr. Meghan Denney
