Dear Dogster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Dogster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Dogster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Dogster magazine, www.dogster.com and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.

Cheers,
Dogster

    You need to have her acclimated to a whelping box and check her temperature at least two times a day. It will drop below 99 degrees 12 to 24 hours before she whelps. She will likely begin panting, nesting, and whimpering. Once she begins pushing, a puppy should present within an hour, otherwise she needs to see a veterinarian. I suspect your dog is not receiving appropriate prenatal care or else you wouldn't be seeking veterinary advice in a forum. Please seek further advice from a veterinarian about whelping and the significant health and behavior benefits of spaying/neutering. Although, not contributing to pet overpopulation should be reason enough.
