Oxytocin/Calcium During Whelping

I would push calcium before more oxy, and get those first pups nursing to help the body release natural oxytocin. Oxy is good to help move a pup that is near the cervix but don't forget every time you give it you are making the entire uterus contract, which could loosen the last few pups placentas, once placentas are detached they only have a short time to get out before suffocating. Myra states that when ever she has seen oxy being used you end up with at least one dead pup.
