My four year old yellow lab is expecting her first litter of pups in 7-10 days. I have never dealt with a dog in labor or puppies before. Does anyone have and advice or tips? Do i need to be there when they are being born? Thanks

I have only gone through one litter. All I can say is that I would highly recommend being around when the pups are being whelped. You never know what the mother will be like and should something go wrong you are right there. My Shorthair starting whelping at about 230am and ended with her last pup of nine at around 300pm. It was a long day for her(and me)! Also, I think if you are around when she is whelping she will feel a bit more at ease and safe. Good Luck!

i would start checking her temperature. When they get close it will drop about 1 degree and they may start chivering or chattering their teeth. When this happens they should start having puppies within 24hrs. i dont like to go more then 2 hours between pups but i have gone 4 hrs many times with no problems. if longer then this you should bring her in in case you have one stuck or breech. try to keep the pups at 100 degrees on a heated tray or something. I use these trays from Lovette electronics and they are the best by far

You can cut out a hole in a platform or box above the ground and mom can lay around the tray while pups in the tray. this keeps mom from being so overheated. the pups cant maintain their own body heat until atleast 3-5 days old. so this is very important. If you get one that is small or not thrieving i will lead them to a teet (squeez out some milk for the smell and taste) and try to get them to latch on many tmes a day for the first few days, if they dont thrieve after that it is your call but sometimes mothernature knows best.

GOOD LUCK!

It may be too late but i could borrow you a lovett heating tray as they cost $250 or you can borrow one of my boxs with the tray built into it if needed.

    • Sounds like the Preds and Pens were also hot after him so we won the bidding war, that would explain the price. We might end up facing the Preds in the first round so better we have him than them. Don't know much about Hanzel but from what I am reading he is big, good face off & pk guy and contributes a little offence. Maybe not a huge upgrade over Haula but having him on the 4th could be huge for us if him and Stewart can get something going. White looks kind of like a depth 4th liner so there is that as well. Should be a fun rest of the season, always fun to get new toys around March even if they haven't worked out in the past.
    •   And yet more credible than Trump:  
    •   Paradox : BD2 and an open mind.
    • It's been going on for years. Just look at how many times the Howard Stern show has pranked the news with fake guests.
    • Maybe some people feel a  lbgt,, black lives matter, sierra club, feminist, white guilt, supported candidate better represents them than say an NRA endorced candidate.
    •    I think they do as good of a job as to be expected. Pills are highly regulated. International web deliveries and dirty doctors are a little tricky to weed out.      Nope, we'll use your logic and decriminalize driving under the influence.   Problem solved.   Should eradicate fatalities of those types as since it is legal, it no longer appeals to folks, they stop doing it.     Explain in detail, in a country, filled with people who love over consumption, that consume 80% of the drugs on the entire planet, how that would work.   Start stuttering.     That's about right. One word in depth answers.   On an idea that will not work in this country.   "I think we can learn that we should stop being reflexively opposed when someone else does [decriminalize] and should take seriously the possibility that anti-user enforcement isn't having much influence on our drug consumption," says Mark Kleiman, author of the forthcoming When Brute Force Fails: How to Have Less Crime and Less Punishment and director of the drug policy analysis program at UCLA. Kleiman does not consider Portugal a realistic model for the U.S., however, because of differences in size and culture between the two countries.   http://content.time.com/time/health/article/0,8599,1893946,00.html        It's your idea, you explain it and sell it.   You lazy fraud.
    • Wowza, I guess we are going for, no better year I suppose. We are now crazy deep at center and that is a good good thing, hopefully the new guys can mesh with the lineup right away.
    • So much fun to watch the media just lose all credibility, I suspect there will be more fun to come.

    • I think he means keep the prisons full and the private prison industry in money at all costs. Welcome to the wonderful world of donor $$$ "trumping" common sense. Nothing like buying laws so you can profit, not that this is anything new.
