There is only way to be sure that mom does not have any puppies left within her and that is by X-ray. If you become concerned that her labor is not progressing as it should, the ER is the best place to go. They can not only guide you with what to do, but can aid her in her delivery. Some mothers will require having a c-section to remove puppies from their body that they cannot otherwise deliver. Since mom has already delivered one stillborn puppy, we have to worry that more could be stillborn as well. Once you're satisfied with our dialogue, please take the time to issue a rating for me so that I am compensated for helping you today. Best of luck!
