Hello, I looked over the question you sent.
This is a case that requires an appointment with a veterinarian.
Generally, mother dogs deliver between 2 and 16 puppies. On average, they give birth to 4 or more puppies.
If your dog still has a fetus in her womb, take her to the veterinarian as soon as possible.
Palpate the uterus or abdomen, and if you feel something being touched,
If your dog shows symptoms such as shortness of breath, fever or lethargy,
If some exudate still comes from vaginal area, it is safe to take her to the veterinarian.
Please do not hesitate to ask any further questions you may have. Thank you.

(The consultation type you select only determines whether or not your pet requires medical attention. If you require a detailed consultation, please ask questions without urgent mode.)
