It definitely sounds like Phoenix is in labor. How long has her temp been low?I wouldn't be too worried, except for the fact that she has been panting since last night. - Dr. C

Her temp dipped to 98.6 last night at about 8pm est. this morning was up to about 99.2 now back down.

With this new information, I do think it's warranted to have her evaluated by an emergency veterinarian this evening to make sure (via ultrasound) that there aren't any signs of fetal distress. Hope that helps and please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. - Dr. C
