Hello!
I have a pregnant queen who is now at 76 days into her pregnancy. She has had one litter before. I took her to the vet 5 days ago and the vet didn't seem concerned and advised to let nature take its course. Ultra sound was performed and he said she should have babies within 24 hours.

Momma and babies are still active and are not in distress in any way. My question is how long do I let her pregnancy go on before requesting further intervention?

70 days is on the higher end of a pregnancy. I would definitely call your vet and inquire if you can get another check. Your queen could have serious issues delivering if the babies get too big. @JordanF12

Thank you! I do think I'll take her in today. The vet won't 'induce labor' but will perform a c-section. I was hoping to avoid that.

I just dropped her off at the vet. They're going to administer oxytocin to see if she responds. If nothing happens then a c section will be performed around 3. Keep my sweet girl and her babies in your thoughts
