I would strongly urge you to get her to a veterinary clinic in order to take an x-ray of her belly and rule out the possibility of an additional puppy and/ or a retained placenta if this is a concern

This is the only way to rule in/ out there is an additional puppy and if there is it can put Lola at risk if it is no longer viable and is still within her womb

I hope this makes sense, please have her seen at your veterinary clinic and have an x-ray taken as a precaution to calm these concerns and fears of a retained puppy...
