I am sorry to hear she has lost a puppy.

I will need a little bit more information to better help you:

1) Is this her first breeding?

2) What breed of dog is she?

3) When was she originally bred?

4) did she have x-rays or an ultrasound at the vet to determine how many puppies were present?

Thanks Dr G, I was in panic mode when I signed up for this service. It was after hours and I didn't know what to do. She is doing fine now. I took her to emergency Vet and she had a C-section the next day. 9 puppies they are all doing good. Thanks again.

I am so glad to hear she is doing well. I know that can be very scary. Congrats on the new puppies!
