Yes, Allie. Remain patient for now. Dystocia (difficult birth) isn't considered unless more than 3 hours pass between pups without active contractions. Try not to hover over Lily. She'll pick up on your anxiety. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.

Sounds good. I have to leave my computer for the night and so I'll opt out which will allow other vets to enter this conversation if you need to consult later.

Hi there. After 2 hours she delivered the 2nd puppy and then went on to have 3 more at roughly half hour intervals. Ask happy and healthy. Thank you ever so much for your help lady night I really appreciated it.
