  my dog is pregnant is 63 days preganant can anyone tell me why she keeps panting
even though she not in labour my bitch is 63 days pregnant and for the last 2 days hes been panting on and off. her temperature dropped 2 days ago and iv read up and they usally go into labour 24 hour after its dropped so when she started panting i thought this was it, she's in labour! but then she stopped. again last night she was panting again this looked like the real thing and after a few hours she stopped again. this isnt her first litter and this never happend befor. i rang the vet and they said this can be normal. im worried something might be wrong as she is massive and i dont know if she findin it hard or somthing (she doesnt look destressed or anything) im just worrying. can anyone give me anymore info why this is happening?

it can be normal but i would take you dog to the vet for a check up, her temp dropped two days ago and she has been panting on and off, she may be too big to contract, it happened to my girl, she had a litter of 9 and was massive but she had a condition called enersher (not sure how to spell it) this is where the dog goes into labour but does not have contractions, she had to have a c-section, once a temp drops the dog should go into labour with in 24 hrs the fact it has been two days of panting i would be getting worried too but it is better to get it checked out, i phoned my vet after two days and he said it was normal but my dog needed a c-section when i insisted on him looking at her as they said she was not contracting if i had left it i could have lost the dog and puppies, it is always better to be over causious when it comes to a dog in possible labour go with your instincts honey

with all the weight she is carrying she is hot and remember dogs don´t sweat, the only means of cooling down she has is panting. Oh how exciting new puppies!

The average length of the pregnancy is 56 to 64 days. So keep a watch on her. She could go into labor at anytime. Also she is carrying alot of extra weight. If she doesn't have pups in the next day or two I would take her to a vet. She could be having trouble going into labor and may need extra help. Good Luck!

She may be in prelabor where she is ready to go into whelp. If she is as big as you say she is think about how uncomfortable she has to be.
If she doesn't start to go into labor by today or tomorrow at the latest I'd have her vet checked and have a x-ray done to make sure a pup is not blocking the way for the rest to be whelped. Or a pup is too big to pass through the birth canal.
Even though she free whelped the first time doesn't mean she will this time.

all the extra weight shes carrying is probably making her more and more tired
