Holding Our Breath
It's been over an hour since the first pup's outer sac broke (lots of yellow sticky liquid discharge). That's not a good thing (that's we haven't seen the pup yet).
BUT, though she's having contractions, Elsie's not really straining. And she's alert and doesn't seem distressed.
She's also interested in bouillon and ice cubes.
She seems okay. I'm concerned about her pups (a pup should come within and hour of the outer sac breaking -- normally).
I just talked to the vet. He said to give her another 20 minutes. Then to call back.
Pray this pup comes very soon, and that Elsie can deliver it. Otherwise the whole litter and Elsie could be at risk.
