Caring for a Pregnant Dog?

December 10, 2009

A pregnant golden retriever.My Dachshund is around 39 days pregnant, I meant to have her spayed, but waited too long and my husband accidentally let her out. My neighbor let me know that he saw her tied up with a Scottie. I am very concerned and nervous for her to have puppies. Do they usually have a hard time or do I need to do anything?

You should discuss this with your veterinarian or your dogs healthcare practitioner. Where she is only a month along you could still have her spayed safely avoiding this whole problem and contributing more cross bred puppies to an overpopulated world. In either case your dogs health care practitioner should be able to give you an idea based on her breed what her risks are. They may be unwilling to go into more detail than that without a consultation/office visit due to liability issues. Good luck with whatever you decide.

When it comes to a pregnant Yorkie, please take her to the vet! I believe in thriftiness, but your dogs life is not a good area to economize.

Please please PLEASE, avoid life threatening complications by taking your dog to the vet.

I always use 60 days as a guide. She will tell you when it's time if you watch her closely. Mine gets ansty and sometimes clingy on the day of delivery.

It takes about 59-63 days. Anything before or after 59-63 the pups might be dead!

It takes anywhere from 59 to 65 days, but it's best if the puppies are born after about 62 days.

My girl is 61 days and she hasn't been showing any signs of pregnancy. She hasn't been making a nest or showing any signs to the babies but I can feel and see the babies moving so they are alive.

Is she just not ready or not sure what to do? It's the first time for her to have babies.

I got my dog breed back in the middle of May or sometime. It is now August and she still hasn't had any puppies. But she is showing every sign that she showed before she had her puppies last time.

For about a week she has had a milky substance on her tits and she has been nesting in the extra bedroom. And still no puppies...

It takes about 2 months for a dog to have babies. Y will notice by the way it acts it will be fatter and it will like to rest a lot. Remember to feed it more food for the babies can be nice and healthy.

It depends on what type of dog you have the days can very by how many puppies they have, how old they are, and the breed of your dog and the father.

The dog usually knows what to do. We have a pair of Shitz Zu's we aboslutely love them. We got them from a family who had a doberman that was using the male as a chew toy.

If you just adopted the dog, you should take it to the vet for an exam. He can tell you about when her puppies will be born and what you should do if anything. Be sure to keep an eye on her as small dogs sometimes have problems in delivering.

Be sure to take her and the puppies back to the vet for a check up and shots. Possibly it would be a good idea to have her spayed.
