Hi,my name is pam nichols. i’m a veterinarian in bountiful, utah, at animal care center. I’d like to talk to you today, about how to tell when your dog is pregnant. First thing is, we hope that you’re doing this responsibly, and that you’ve planned to breed your dog, and that you in fact, did witness the breeding, not that your dog was just running free, and happened to get pregnant. Second thing, is that after your dog has been bred, by day thirty, a blood test can be run ,that will confirm that’ she’s actually pregnant. By.
Day thirty, you will start seeing signs of pregnancy, but these signs can be very misleading, because every dog that has a heat cycle, will go through a false pregnancy, every single time, and this simply has to do with the dog’s corpus luteum, not disappearing until about day fifty, so dogs that go into heat, act like they’re pregnant, no matter what, for at least a month, or a month and a half, so at day thirty after breeding, take your dog to her vet. Have a blood test run, to confirm pregnancy. If you’re not sure at day thirty,.
Or if you don’t have time to take her at day thirty, you can take her in at day fifty to fifty five of gestation, and your vet can take xrays, and find out how many puppies are in,and what size the puppies are, and I actually recommend that for all of my pregnant dogs, just simply so we know, and especially, this is dogs that are at risk, for having cesarean sections, so dogs like poodles, and chihuahuas, and doxsins. Dogs that tend to have larger puppies than they’re able to deal with, able to deliver. We’d like you to have.
Xrays before delivery. other signs that your dog might be pregnant, would be her abdomen gets swollen. Her appetite may decrease. Her activity level may decrease. She may get a little more sedentary. She also may get more needy, and be hanging out with you more, and not want to leave your side. Dogs tend to get a little bit anxious, and then as gestation progresses, they’ll start doing things like panting heavily, because their belly is so big and swollen, and pacing a lot, and just not being able to get comfortable, standing.
