Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help you today.

I'm sorry for this concern for your girl. I do have a few additional questions to ask about her if you don't mind:

1. How long ago was the last puppy delivered?

2. Is she actively straining at all? If so, for how long?

3. I assume she's resting quietly and taking care of the 3 puppies she's already delivered?

Thanks, Deb
