Hi, I'm new to the site and just needed a little bit of advise if someone is kind enough to help. My lovely girl started going into stage 1 labour 3.30 yesterday and has been restless /nesting throughout the night. We've had a bit of panting and lying on her side and generally looking uncomfortable etc. This morning she was a bit brighter but has now come out of her whelping box. She is panting heavily and licking her vulva constantly. I presumed we were starting stage 2 but I have noticed she is bleeding a little from her vulva. IS THIS NORMAL?????? No pushing yet. This is her second litter but we never had this with her first. She is on day 65 today from first mating. I should add that the blood is a browny red colour. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
