Q. My dog is a mix of Pug Dachshund and Chihuahuais having puppies she had the first puppy like 2 hours ago I'm pretty sure she still has some more

Answered By

A. The general rule is that if she has had strong contractions for 20-30min and did not produce a puppy you should take her to your vets. If she is not having contractions or they are weak and infrequent then you can wait for 2-3hr. Within 2-3hrs she should produce a puppy. If not, contact your vets.
