Your Dam may exhibit all or just some of the following signs.
Stage 2 - pre labor
Stage 3 - Labor
that lasts for over an hour with no visible pup,
you maybe in trouble.
This is when you need to search your gut.
Ask yourself, How do you feel?
Do you feel you are safe or in trouble.
Go by your gut instinct.
Read the Dams signs, her body is talking to you.
She is probably safe if she is napping between contractions,
but if is she becoming exhausted from constant pushing and straining,
if she appears close to collapse you maybe in trouble?
She is telling you something is wrong and a puppy maybe to large to pass thru her pelvis.
If you feel you are in trouble. Call your Vet and get ready to seek help.
