    Not unusual that she doesn't want to eat much just now. I normally tempt them with beef mince after they've all had a good rest.

    Her appetite will kick in tomorrow.

    Glad it all progressed well. She really did get it all done nice and quick and at a sensible hour too.

    They look lovely, nice even size.

    Pretty kept herself fairly clean, just a few drips now and then on the carpets. Just keep an eye on the discharge for any change in colour or smell that can be a sign of infection.

    Do you mean the puppies shake or the mother. Or the mothers bleed or the puppies?

    It's not usual for some mothers to bleed until half way thru weaning.

    Puppies shouldn't be bleeding. My mothers didn't shake, but the puppies can sort of appear to shake as they drag themselves to the milk bar, I'd call it wobble.

    Is the room warm enough? Can you sit in there in t-shirt and jeans?

    I have a wooden three sided box with a lid on hinges that I can lift up, it covers about 3/4 of the box and is made just a bit higher than the bitch, but a table put over the whelping box with some blankets draped over will also do the trick. Think den.

    Chill is a big killer of newborn puppies. But there are heaps of things around the house that can make a nice warm den for them. Just make sure nothing can slip off into the box and trap a puppy.

    If the vet is coming out they'll check mums temp and the needle will help stop the bleeding.
