There were only two puppies, but after a successful delivery of the first (named Ray Ray), the second pup hadn’t come in the next 5 hours. Ultimately we did a C-Section, but the second pup didn’t survive. Keep your veterinarian in the loop. If there is an hour between puppies call your vet. The quicker we see the mom that is having trouble, the better the chance that the puppies will survive and mom will be OK. Ray Ray is thriving and a joy to his owner.
