you are not allowed to put what breed this is, as you are not allowed to advertise.  It's in the TOS.

Sorry i didnt know this i dont have to advertise them anyway as they all have homes waiting for them this is why i am concerned about future problems as they are all going to friends and family

hi and congrats on your lovely puppies x my girl in the past has delivered puppies without sacs and there has never been any problems with pups as they grow up.  Sometimes the sac will peel away while the pups are travelling through to be born, so i would not be worried at all about it. X x

You should always have the same numbers of afterbirth as you do puppies, if not I would be worried.  Don't want to be alarmist (is that a word!!) but one of my friends bitches died of septicemia (not sure on spelling) because there was an afterbirth left inside.  I would phone your vet and see what they say.  Better safe than sorry. Is there a chance your bitch could have eaten them before you saw it?

hi you girl will still have a bit of discharge after having her puppies, as long as the discharge is not foul smelling then things are normal,  you have done right in asking your vet, and normally the mum clears up all the after birth naturally. I have never had a mum dog get infection after birth, but it can happen, i am sure your vet will put your mind at rest on monday x x
