    Need help now... friend\'s dog is having puppies

    and she has no clue what to do...

    The dog's name is Nike and she is a pitbull terrier...

    So far, Nike has had only one pup and it's been a little over an hour... is this normal?

    Re: Need help now... friend\'s dog is having puppies

    I think so.... my friends dog had puppies and it took like all freaking day. She ended up with 6... might wanna look up some online vet advice or best bet call a 24hr vet. Most will at least give you some advice for free if they are any good. If they insist on charging you say no thanks because like I said anyone good will offer phone advice for free...

    Thanks... I searched a little on the net and each page I read said something different /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    I told her to call the vet, but she called me (why? I couldn't tell ya). Besides the fact that I'm at work... I don't know nuthin about birthin' no puppies... /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Just thought I would ask here since there's always someone around. I just tried to call her back and the phone is busy so hopefully, she decided to call the vet.

    Thanks again /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Vet's advice will be to put her in a dark room where its quiet and let nature take its course. We have the stupidest dog in the world. A palmeranian pure breed, and she seems to be the dumbest dog i have ever seen yet when it came time for her to have puppies we left her alone and she did fine, even became very protective of them within the day. You'll see they know what to do. They just need to be in a stress free enviroment. Maybe confine them to a bigger box with some old towels as a base.

    Thanks everyone!! There ended up being 5 puppies and it took most of the night. I get first pick of the litter depending on who Nike was sneaking out to hook up with...could be stray golden lab, the neighbor's black lab or the weenie dog down the street /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
