My cat has been in labor for 20 hours, 3 have been born and the other may be dead, what to do?


Your case is serious, 20 hours of labor is a long time, in addition to the puppy that is probably dead your cat is also at risk.

Pregnancy in cats lasts about 60 to 65 days and must be accompanied by a veterinarian by means of imaging tests to certify the number of fetuses and their viability. At the time of delivery, the acceptable period between one puppy and another is 2 hours and this with the cat in great general condition - in any sign of fatigue, the animal must be taken to a veterinarian for possible intervention.

In your case the indication is to take your pet to a clinic with support for surgery as your pet will probably have to undergo a caesarean section.
