boxer in labor

by janet P
(Mentor Ohio)

my boxer is pregnant and her due date is tomorrow her temp dropped this morning to 98.6 and at 730pm it was 98.1 she is panting strongly and hasn't eaten all day when should i expect puppies.

A drop in temperature to 97-99 degrees usually means that she is about to go in to labor in the next 8-24 hours.

Refusing to eat or drink anything is another sign that labor is imminent as well. She may also appear restless and start trying to create a nesting area. This typically means pushing blankets or newspaper together.

For an urgent health question like this you really should try Ask a Vet.
