I found a pregnant stray walking down a country road in the middle of no where a few days ago and have since then been caring for it while figuring out what to do with her. As a precaution I built a make shift whelp box, thankfully, as I found her in labor this morning. She has since given birth to two pups in the last hour or so and seems like she is still in labor. I've done research, but as this being my first time having a litter, I'm still not completely confident on what to do. It's only been about an hour after the birth of the first pup but she's hasn't produced any milk yet. Is this normal? What can I do to help?
Thank you so much for all your help. I'm trying my best to do right by this girl.
I am no expert and I don't know about milk producing but the bitch maybe needs liquids like chicken soup and maybe later when finished some soft meat or chicken. I hope some one with experience will answer you soon.
First off..... THANK YOU!! For taking this little girl in. Secondly, put the pups on her and encourage nursing.... That will help. Third, make mom happy, and make sure she has plenty of fresh water, she may not want any food right now, but you can try when you are sure all pups have been borne, some chicken breast, boiled or sauteed with a little salt.... The salt will help her, and also make the chicken taste great. She should also be eating all of the afterbirth from babies, so she may not be hungry when she is done. GOOD LUCK, and keep us posted on progress.
