    First pup born at 8 she's been pushing for awhile now and still no more pups so that makes it 3 hours now think I'll ring vet

    A gap between pups is fine, especially between the first and next one. It's the pushing to watch. Once she starts pushing one should turn up, if she pushes for two hours without producing a pup - get to the vet.

    Some bitches can have a couple of hours or so rest between the first pup and others, this is fine and helps with bonding etc. The later ones tend to come faster so she won't have that time again until she's done.

    She has been pushing and swatting like she needs to poo for about an hour now...

    I know it sounds icky, but if you slide your (clean and disinfected) finger into her vulva can you feel anything at all?

    Sometimes pushing can take a while and the pup is in the birth canal. Sometimes it is mal-presented and can't make it's way into the canal.

    Don't forget - 2hr limit on pushing. Or you could be looking at exhaustion or injury.

    Do you have any liquid calcium about? A couple of spoonfuls can often help things along. Even a little drink of watery honey if you have it.

    How far are you from a vet if you need to take her?

    Travelling time should be taken into account.

    Cute pic. Hope she's doing ok.
    Is the father much bigger than her? Cause she doesn't look all that big and if he is much bigger she may have big pups in there. It could slow things down initially, even if they're not stuck they could be just hard work.
