    Any advise on dogs who are going to have puppies?

    I have a dog who is about to have puppies.  I'm very concern for her and don't know what to do. ...I'm taking her to the vet but still doesn't ease my mind.  What if she goes into labor in the middle of the night and something is wrong? Does anyone of any advise or suggestions?

    Keep your vet's 24 hour emergency number handy. Your dog will let nature take it's course and find a comfortable spot for the main event. This could be favorite clothing, blankets, furniture, etc. My mom's Dachshund hid in the closet when she had her litter. If something does go wrong during the labor, call your vet and they will be able to walk you through the worst. Make sure the puppies get unveiled (taken out of their sacs) quickly if mama doesn't do it. Encourage nursing after birth and keep the area clean.
