FAQ: My pet is giving birth. When do I bring her to the vet?

A: Most of the deliveries (aka. parturition) performed at the veterinary center are due to dystocia. Dystocia is when your pet is having a slow or difficult delivery. Bring your pet to the nearest vet if you observe the following:

1. Your pet spent 30 minutes of strong contractions but no pups delivered.
2. Your pet spent 60 to 120 minutes of weak or infrequent contractions but no pups delivered.
3. If you waited more than 2 hours for the next pup to come out.
4. The pup is stuck or hanging out.
