    Re: How to Tell if Your Dog is Pregnant?

    Hi

    I am new to the forum, i live in England. I have five dogs plus a long term foster dog. Anyway my problem is this.
    Ebony my black Labrador cam into season 4 weeks early ( on the day she was due to be neutered). So instead of taking Ebony to be spayed we tok along Brodie our chocolate male labrador.

    10 days into Ebony's season Brodie managed to get to ebony and they mated and was tied for 10-15 minutes. The mating took place 10 days into Ebonys season and ten days after brodie was castrated.

    Ebony is now 28 days if she is pregnant. She has swelling of the vulva still, enlarged nipples, a slight swelling under the rib cage, very hungry, more sleeping and wants lots more affection. Is this like to be a pregnancy or a phantom pregnancy. I believe a male dog is still fertile up to six months after neutering. So what are your opinions. Is she pregnant. Oh nearly forgot she has lost some fure around her nipples area and her udders are bigger dowm the bottom end.

    Take her to the vet and have them examine her. That's hte only way to be sure at this point. If she's 28 days, I think it's too late to abort the pregnancy so spay will have to wait untill after the pups are weaned. You can have the pups spayed/nuetered before they go to new homes too.

    My dog has just had her first heat. It's been 5 weeks since she started and her vulva is still swollen, her nipples have started to get bigger, and she has been licking her stomach. I'm really not sure if she is pregnant or not, but I haven't bred her with any other dogs. Someone please tell me that she isn't.

    Why would you prefer our guesses over that of a vet? I'd hate to say no and be wrong. So yes, your dog is pregnant. Now if you're truly concerned, have your dog see a vet.

    Re: How to Tell if Your Dog is Pregnant?

    Gday all,

    My name is Owen and Im from Australia. I picked up a female Jackrussell cross Foxy cross daschund cross whatever else about 3 weeks ago, as a stray. She hasnt been spayed, and in the last couple of weeks has really been showing signs of pregnancy. So yeah, I will most certainly be taking her to a vet to get the snip, but unfortunately was too late in taking possesion of her (so dont chastise me for having a bitch with an unplanned pregnancy).

    She seems in good health, but this week mostly she has been getting really agitated... quite excitable when I get home... until today. She was in her kennel and whimpering. She has a n enlarged vulva, enlarged tits (which one has started lactating), is getting quite a fat and firm tummy, is getting more and more sensitive about touching her (always loves a scratch on the belly though), and has been quite lethargic since I got home from work. When I pulled her out of her kennel, she ran and hid under some sheet iron, then in my garden shed, then under some carparts, she didnt even try to run out of the yard as I drove the car through the gates. Anyone got any advice on things I should prepare?? What does a whelping box look like and do?? Temperatures here are getting down around 5-8 degrees celsius at night, and up to about 20-25 during the day, so not too hot, but a bit chilly. I would prefer not to take her to the vet unless I have to, as vets are very far strung around this town and I would likely be waiting a week anyway. Also, I plan on taking a car trip in about 3 weeks to see my mum... if the pups are born in the next couple of days, am I going to be able to go (obviously have somebody check in on them each day), or will they require too much attention from me??

    I hope that its a false pregnancy... but if not, I certainly hope everything works out well.

    Thanks for anybody's help/advice.

    Cheers, Owen

    Your dog needs a VET, now - You need to know what you are dealing with so you can better prepare.

    Re: How to Tell if Your Dog is Pregnant?

    We planned a mating for our boxer - she would now be 20 days into her pregnancy. I have contacted our vet and she won't be having her scan for another 10 days - can somebody advise if she is possibly pregnant (we have new homes for the pups already). My instincts are telling me she is having pups but not sure until her vet says. Her early symptoms are: back 4 nipples definately enlarged, tired a lot but not listless, a little white frothy sicky and doesn't eat until after 2pm then can't eat enough. She seems very protective over her stomach area when going to touch. But I am allowed to rub her belly very gently.

    There's no way to know for sure until she has an ultrasound or x-ray done. If you bred her then you should be prepared for the possibility of her being pregnant.

    Everybody's got a laughin' place; trouble is most folks won't take the time to go find it.

    I wonder why this thread is the most viewed thread of all the threads. Perhaps the message of spay/neuter has crossed the divide yet.

    I have been reading this thread also and I'm confused as to why people such as Curbside Prophet don't keep their rude comments to themselves?

    If that's you're definition of rude, perhaps you'd like to qualify your comments? Or not...

    I have been reading this thread and have realized how many people do not educate themselves about anything having to do with a dog before they get it... or "breed" it. This is really disgusting and disappointing... and we wonder why in the world there are so many stays and dogs euthenized in shelters everyday.

    Like others have said... If you are going to "breed" your dog, or plan to "breed" your dog... you should educate yourself about EVERYTHING first... and not have to come on to a dog forum, with no Vet qualifications, and ask questions that you should already know the answer to. These are the consequences when you do not SPAY AND NEUTER your pet.

    And really... how in the world was Curbside Prophet's comment rude?? She is one of the most non-ignorant people on here...
    I really think threads like this need to be closed... people need to pick up the phone and TALK TO A VETERINARIAN. (this is not to any reputable breeders on here... those that are out to better the breed know who you are) In truth... there are only a great couple on here.

    Re: How to Tell if Your Dog is Pregnant?

    Ok. I think we all know everyones opinions but I think what Dave was asking are are there any signs? Of course they should go to the vet but wheres the fire? When I thought I was pregnant and I am a human I waited till my 4 and a couple of times till my 6 month (I am not real big on doctors) before going in.

    So like in humans there are some times signs of being pregnant are there signs in dogs?

    Re: How to Tell if Your Dog is Pregnant?

    Not trying to be mean or anything... but I think that it is threads like these that keep people from actually calling a vet or going in to see a vet. There are many people that will come on here, read the "suggestions" and then say "okay well, i can look for that... I dont have to see a vet" Then when they see the wrong thing, or to them, dont see anything at all... and the dog gives birth and has complications... what happens then? I am not saying everyone does this, but we all know that there are too many that do.

    That is my problem with this.

    Re: How to Tell if Your Dog is Pregnant?

    And another thing I do not thing the thread was intended to ask our opinions on careless breeding or to question others on why their dog may be pregnant it just was supposed to be simple I think. There must be signs what are they?


    Oh yes I wanted to mention I do not now or ever plan to breed I have enough human babies and would never want to go through breeding dogs and thier babies so my posting here is just because I am curious I have no dog breeding plans.

    Very interesting topic. Can't wait until my Doberman girl gets pregnant with pups. They're going to be beautiful.
