Whelping Diary Spin off....
Didn't want to hijack Lauri's thread, but we've got a bit of an odd case going on right now and figured I'd post it as it might help some others, or at least be of interest.
Raven is due to whelp 8-9 pups on Saturday.
I got a frantic call from Tim while I was at work this afternoon telling me she'd just delivered a pup. She showed NO signs of impending labor this morning.. temp was normal, ate normal, no nesting, them BAM! here's a pup around 2pm
Pup is a bit on the small side, but not small enough to worry. Is active and eating well.
She has shown no more signs of labor since delivering that pup, and it's now been more than 4hrs. She's been on walks, pottied, ate dinner, ate some yogurt. Still nothing. Tim just ran out to snag some vanilla ice cream. We'd normally have it on hand, but figured we had a couple days yet (were going to go grocery shopping tonight actually). So if that and another walk doesn't get things going we'll be giving her a shot of oxytocin.
She is not at all in any form of distress. But also not showing any signs of labor. She's acting perfectly normal and is actually trying to get us to play. And we know there are more pups in there.
