Ok, so this is my first time with a dog who is whelping. She is a first time mom and I have all the supplies needed: alcohol, sterile gloves, washcloths (the pups will be tiny), blunt tip scissors, whelping area, scale, aspiration bulb, and unwaxed floss. Last night her temp dropped to 96.5. Today her breathing was labored, and now she doesn’t want to sleep with me. She is on day 61 of gestation.
