    I am a small but experienced breeder and I am always confused by what I read ref the early delivery of puppies and their chances of survival. I have had puppies born at day 60 with no problems and puppies born at day 65 with no problems, but searching for information regarding early delivery is not easy as so much conflicting advice. I fear my girl may be in the very early stages of labour on day 57, she has been scanned with a large litter. She was progesterone tested and was mated when the recommendation said "Go now" I am in the UK.. she was 16.3 and we went the following day. If puppies came today at 57 days what should I expect? I would be very grateful for replies. Thank you

    Hi Carheja,
    Did the puppies arrive over the weekend? Hope you and your girl are okay.
