Customer Question

My poodle just gave birth to two, 20 min apart. The afterbirth stayed in her on both pups. Knowing she had 4 to deliver she stopped. 6 hrs later one was born dead. Eight hrs has passed & she's sleeping. The afterbirth came out with dead baby. Since it is Sunday, I can't reach my vet. Is she safe until tomorrow?
