Prelabor Symptoms

There are many signs indicating that whelping time is near (within 12-24 hours), such as:

  • Drop in temperature-we typically have the owners take the rectal temperature of the bitch every 12 hours starting 7 days prior to anticipated due date.  Usually 8-24 hours prior to delivery, the temperature will have a significant drop of 2 degrees to about 98.6° F.
  • Loose stools
  • Decrease in appetite
  • Nesting/digging
  • Increased mucoid vaginal discharge
  • Milk in mammary glands

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "I cannot stress how awesome the entire staff is at Animal Hospital of Woodstock. We are new patients of this office and I’ve been going through random drama with my cat and his food allergies. Any time I call with a “crisis” the staff is warm and understanding all while being prompt with advice or instructions. If you are looking for a new vet I highly recommend this office. Thanks to Dr. Chris for taking such good care and concern with Watkins!"

  • "Thank you for your evening hours! We ran into a problem with our dog at 6:30 PM (he had something caught in his throat) and we were able to run over to our regular Vet clinic and get care. Dr. Chris was great and a big help! He even checked up on us the next morning. We've been clients for a long time, and really appreciate all of you!!"

  • "I needed to take my black lab to Animal Hospital of Woodstock for a echocardiogram and they were fabulous.. they brought me back to the room, brought a bowl of water for my dog, and just made us feel right at home. Staff and Drs were very friendly. I would highly recommend going here!"
