Have you been watching her when she went out to pee? Sometimes they will pass them while they are peeing. I always give my girls a shot of 1cc oxytocin in the hip after they are done whelping just to make sure they are cleaned out and to help with their milk coming in. Maybe the vet didn't want to give her the shot because it's been too long since she had them? I don't know. Did she palpate her? Is she leaking any dark dark green stuff? Is there alot of discharge? Is she acting lethargic? Shivering? Feverish? Sometimes if they retain a placenta their body will reabsorb it and they will be fine, other times it will make them deathly ill. Keep an eye on her. Take her temp morning and night. If it's above 102 then she has a fever. Do you have any antibiotics?

Ya, I kinda figured she might have. It usually comes out attached to the puppies sac, and can be easy to miss. As long as she's eating and happy, no fever you sould be good.

I hate to give oxytocin unless I have too. What breed do you have Caley?

I have english mastiffs. Oxytocin is one of those things that I've found that either you use it or don't. Lots of breeders are for or against it. I only give 1cc to a 150-175 lb dog. That's enough to help flush the uterus, but not enough to cause painful or dangerous contractions that could blow the uterus.

Oh we have used it a lot ( I'm a Vet tech) but so far, personally, I haven't had to use it with my danes (when I bred them) or my fox terrors I completely understand how valuable it can be in the RIGHT hands !

Love mastiffs! I show dogs , and just finished Harley a mastiff's american championship, and made him the #2 mastiff in Canada (where we live)

What's his full registered name? Are you a handler? I've showed some. I championed my boy at an international show. He has some AKC points, but there's no way I could travel far enough to get to a major. I live in northwest Arkansas. I'd have to travel at least 5 hours one way just to get to a major!

He is Am.Can.Ch.SweetIron's Harley, bred and lives in newfoundland (east coast of Canada, I am in Manitoba, above North Dakota).

Yes I am a handler, I love it . I travel a lot, and lucky for us, MN, had tons of majors for us!! He finished with breed wins over champions, and finished with ALL majors!

Yes I watch her every time she goes outside to pee. The discharge has completely stopped already. She was seen by the vet the day after she had her puppies and the vet palpated her and said everything was good. Just in case there was placenta left over she was going to giver her the shot but I said no at the last minute. She's been her hyper happy self since she delivered. Except when dad got into our room where mom and the puppies are. She attacked him O.O

Ya, she doesn't want ANY other dogs around right now. Sounds like she got them all out . Keep us all posted on their growth!
