Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 1 month ago.

1) Did Laly have x-rays performed to see how many puppies were expected?
2) Has she produced any other puppies?

Please do remove the stillborn puppy. There is no reason for Laly to keep this deceased pup.
