    We have a pitbull that just dropped a puppy and buried it still in the sack. ,she is only 55 days at most. its been 3 hours and she shows no signs of labor.will she have all of them now or can she still carry the rest full term.? I mean is it normal to have only 1 pup now and the rest in a week? or once it starts they all come? I will call the vet when it opens, but she acts like shes not even in labor except the dark blood that leaks out.

    Call your vet for advice and make an appointment to have her checked over as soon as possible.

    So, how are things now? Did you check if the puppy was alive?

    Have you called you vet yet? If there are other dead pups inside, she could develop a potentially fatal uterine infection, you really need to have her checked over asap. They can scan her and see what is going on.

    Do let us know what vets says :)

    Can i ask why your vet is closed at 2.30pm :confused: unless you are outside the UK ??

    You really can't expect to get the advice you need quickly enough on the internet and members here aren't qualified vets so are really encouraged not to give advice other than get her to your vets as urgent.

    Hope your dog is ok xx

    Hopefully they will do the right thing and call emergency vet if outside UK :(

    If they are breeding pitbulls, you would hope they were outside UK :confused:

    She needs to get to a vet. She is aborting the litter. All the puppies need to come at once or she will get an infection. Once the cervix is open, thats it, no going back. Closing the cervix will cause closed pyo and she will die unless treated.

    Day 55 (is that from mating or ovulation) Its not too early. You need to know how to revive puppies. Look at my website here Puppy Rescusitation - Thinking Of Breeding

    You need to treat this as actual labour, because thats what it is. Try reviving the puppies, dont leave her unattended, don't allow her to strain too long or go too long between puppies.

    There are 24 hour vets in the us more so tha the uk!! I urge you to get her to a vet now she could die!!

    I assume if the sire was neutered it was very recent as it takes 6 weeks for them to become infertile!

    can you update us, I hope you took her in. Let us know what happened. The emergency fee will be worth saving your dog and any viable pups...jill
