Um, how about you go to the vet NOW instead of waiting around for someone on a message board giving you advice.

I think the e-vet is a good idea. Better safe than sorry.

I really don't know anything about whelping pups, but logic just tells me this is NOT normal. Call another vet.

Very odd. This is the advice: Go to a vet. They are the only ones with hands on that can assist you. No one here can give you advice nor assistance - we are not vets.

If you love your dog and care about the well being - then this is the only option at this point. Better safe than sorry.

a few times there is a deceased pup left, I'd say to see a vet immediately! is this her first litter?

yes this is her first litter. she has clamed abit but rang out of hours vet n he said if she has calmed leave till morning but if starts back up bring her in. i sleep with her anyway so i will be with her to keep an eye on her

Maybe you should see if your question can be answered by your mentor. If not, then you should be talking to your vet.
This is a thread that may answer your question.

Hi, I'm a little late on this one, but I am wondering how things turned out with your dog? From experience, if you feel in your get that your vet is wrong then don't hesitate to get a second opinion. My dog was unable to eat or move and my vet said to wait til morning. I did not feel right about this and called another vet right away and she urged us to rush our pup to her clinic even though it was almost 2 am. Sadly, some are just to lazy to get out of bed. I hope your situation ended better than mine.

All that runs through my head right now... poor dog for one and retained placenta or still a pup in there. 3 days is excrutiatingly painful for her.

Another reason breeding should not be taken lightly.
Hope she made it into a vet and the outcome was good.
*fingers crossed*
