Stages of Canine Labor

A dog that belongs to my friend was in labor approx 5 to 7 days ago. She had 3 pups 3 to 4 days later, then she had another pup now she is still in labor almost 10 days later! Only 1 pup is still alive stools are runny she has started choking this evening and is still having labor every 15 to 30 minutes. Has anyone ever heard of this?

Shirley, it’s normal to rest up anywhere from 20 minutes to four hours between puppies but any longer than that you should definitely contact a vet as it could be putting the dog’s in danger (in addition to miscarrying the pups!)
