Pomeranian is in labor but need advice!!!!

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 

I have a 2 yr old pom that is due on the 22nd.  Today I seen the water sack hanging out.  I place her in her welping box and she stayed but not wanting to.  She keeps licking herself and a little while later the sack retracted back inside. She is not having contractions but is leaking alot. There is also an odd smell in the bathroom where she is at.  This has been going on for several hours now and she isnt stressed over it but I am .  Should I call the vet or just wait until morning?  The smell is what is concerning me.  This is her second liter and her first she didnt have any complications.  Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

Mom of 5 boys, ages 9,11,16,19 and 21.   Servant to 4 beautiful pomeranians, 2 cats, and 3 horses, 1 turkey, 1 peacock  and a mixture of mutt chickens.  Oh and a husband, but do I really have to claim him?

Call your vet.  An open amniotic sack for too long is an invitation to bacteria to invade.  That's not even dealing with the possibility of a decomposing dead pup in there.

Back after a 2 year hiatus from chickens and the forum.  I have one chicken right now - a BO rooster, who just ain't right and likes nothing more than a good cuddle.  No, I don't know, either.

Why do pets always decide to have issues after normal vet hours, LOL, I hope your baby is ok, and her babies are ok too, keep us updated!

The smell is most likely just the birthing smell. After the first water breaks you do not want her to go longer then 2 hours pushing on one pup. After that it is c-section time. Here is a link to a site I felt was very helpful when my pug was in labor. http://www.dogbreedinfo.com/whelpingphotos.htm

Oh really hope she will be ok.  She is my baby!  For a pom she is normally very quiet and not yappy like the others. She is the sweetest little girl I have and ever seen.  Oh Ya never during business hours!  Spend more money on emergency calls mom, you love me!  Already had an emergency room visit with my son this week , he clothslined himself and couldnt breath. They took xrays and he is fine just badly scaped up and bruised.  BOYS!

Yup. Call the vet or go to the emergency room. Much better safe than sorry!

If you can't laugh at yourself and in turn, everyone else, when you or they do something amusing, life is far too serious. Some folks just find more things amusing than others.

I didnt call the vet. The sack has been retracted and she seems ok. Acting normal.  But I am keeping a very close eye on her!  I will keep posted if I go to vet today.  Definately tomarrow even if she is fine.
