Hello, I am sorry to hear what happened. I am a veteinarian, and will do my best to help.
Expert:  Rebecca replied 1 year ago.
There is an injection, called a mismating shot, that can be given the first 24 hours after something like this happens, if you don't want the puppies now. There are possible side effects, such as not working and she remains pregnant, causing her cramping and discomfort, and affecting her future heat cycles.

A prescription medication called cabergoline may also be used to terminate a pregnancy. It has to be given daily for a week or longer, but you start it farther along, it is not a "morning after pill"
Expert:  Rebecca replied 1 year ago.
The only other options are to hope she did not take and is not pregnant, or if she does get pregnant, have her spayed or have the puppies. It would not be the first time dog got pregnant on her first heat. She will be a young mother, but will probably be fine.

i will do I'm just undecided what to do wether to let nature take its course or proceed with a injection

Expert:  Rebecca replied 1 year ago.
If you chose the injection, you need to do it within 24 hours or so. The cabergoline can be done in a few weeks, so y have options.
