Hi folks, Me again........ Ok so Amber is still doing the heavy breathing and panting(although you don't notice it as much when she is resting.) Everything else is fine and pups are thriving. How long does the discharge last after giving birth. Generally she is doing well at keeping herself clean and there is no foul smell but looked like some fresh blood today.....Is this norm? Sorry to hear your still in hospital Tanya. Don't know how you keep going with all the advice but it is greatly appreciated. Get well soon.
