    My girl has been in stage one all day. She just had a burst of dark green discharge. Iknow this is normal after a pup is born but not before they even started pushing. I have never seen this. Is this normal in anyone else's bitches? I have called the vet and was told to give it one more hour and see what happens and that this is normal. I thought that this meant a placenta was detached and the pup was in trouble.

    I’m no expert on dogs, but dark green during birth is not normal.

    Does it smell bad? Is she pushing yet?

    no it does not smell bad. Her water sac presented about 25 min later and she broke it. She has not started pushing yet. She is still contracting and panting and liking alot.

    In my years of experience it means that a placenta has detached. I know that green after a pup is delivered is normal and ok but I have never seen it before a pup is delivered. That is what it looks like. Exactly like it does after a puppy is delivered. Same color, smell, and all just before any births.

    Her second water sac just persented and broke. Maybe things will get started now. Just wish this was over for her. She has never took this long and it just worries me. I know some dogs are slow whelpers, She is having good contraction. Have given her some vanilla Ice cream to help her

    Yes I did. My original vet was not on call and the man who was just kept telling me to give her more time. I did an internal and done some feathering. It helped her bring the first one down some. About an hour later I did another internal and found a foot. I reached up and found another foot and tail and gently pulled with each contraction. His sac had popped. I finally got him down to where she could get him on out. He was a big boy. He was blue when he came out but thankfully I got him back. She has had three so far. Two other little girls. One solid white and the other solid white with blue eye liner lol. The 2nd one popped out before I got the boy cleaned up. She was right behind him lol. I will post a pic of all when she is done.

    I already had my girl Abbey in pup when I rescued the other dog witch is now Hope. My mother took Hope home with her to keep for herself the day we rescued her. She had had her pups already by C-section and is doing good and with my mother. Abbey is here with me. So kinda yes and kinda no lol. Its more like my mom has a litter and I have a litter. I knew it was going to be alot to handle with my girl close to delivery but I could not stand back and not help Hope out of the situation that she was in.
    Does that make sense lol. Best way I could explain it lol

    I think @Abbey's Momma was just remarking that you and the sire of this litter share the same name.
