when a dog goes into labour?

Well my bitch never stopped eating, indeed she insisted on a biscuit between puppies. It varies widely between different bitches. Really a change in temperature is the only sign I know that is always there. You could ask your dogs breeder as they often though not always follow their own mother.

Like Sue says all bitches are different ( I suppose like us ) If your worried then ask your vet I'm sure they will give you lots of advice pics as soon as they are born

One of my bitches didn't eat for a week before she went into labour. Her daughter on the other hand scoffed a bif bowl of meat just before whelping her first pup

My girl stopped eating dog food the day before she whelped but I was able to tempt her to eat a little chicken though. She was a week early, so I thought she was just being fussy. The next day though, she started the usual "labour signs" and I realised that was what the cut down on food was all about!

well things seem to be going good for memphis her temp is 100 and she is leaking milk and isnt very interested in her food. her belly is huge and rock hard and it feels like the pups have moved down a bit from her ribs. it wont be long now.
