Hi guys, so I’m not a novice to a whelping bitch but I am unfamiliar with my bitches circumstances. She seemed to have started stage 1 late last night, just with a bit of panting and nesting but then she went to sleep fine. She woke up this morning, had three bites of breakfast and then was sick so I’ve just been giving her water today as it seemed something was starting with again panting and restless, with some tremors. Then again a couple of hours later she seems normal. From my experience when the bitch starts it’s usually consistent from there. This seems a very slow build up. Jackapoo bitch, 5 years old, first litter. Any advice?
