My dog, Maggie, was in heat weeks ago and I am not sure if she had a male encounter. However, she has been acting differently here latley craving more love and attention and her breast are beginning to hang. I am not very smart when it comes to this kind of thing but do all female dogs breast hang whether they are pregnant or not?? It is mostly the bottom ,like, four breast right now....does it sound like she is pregnant or is this normal...please help!
Not sure, if you are wanting her to go thru with the having pups. Have the vet check her. If no pups are wanted its not too late to abort. As there are millions of dogs out there needing homes right now. It is a common procedure. Sorry if you are offended by that.
Whoever said you can't buy happiness, must have never owned a dog!!!!!!!!!!!
Where was she while in heat that you dont know if she encountered a male dog or not? By the sounds of it, letting her have these pups may be more harmful than jut having her spayed now. You really need to know ALOT more about dogs heats and about whelping etc before even considering allowing her to have them. What happens if she runs into trouble? Will you know what to watch for, etc?
People are like slinky's, not really good for much. But its still fun to push them down the stairs.
at around day 18 to 21, implatation occurs. during this time, some pregnant dogs will appear nauseous and even vomit.u shoul look out for this signs and how long ago did u notice her nipples get large. and also is this the first time she will be pg. if she is pg r u gonna let her have the pups i think u should but thats just my opinion. well good luck and let me know what happens wont u.
I'm a new member and I have a question pertaining to this topic and spaying. I just dropped off my puppy who is 4 and 1/2 months old to get spayed and they told me I should wait until her adult teeth come in. I don't want her to go into heat before I have her spayed because we also have a male dog. Has anyone heard of making them wait for their adult teeth, and should I?
ur vet is sooooo wrong u should get another vet because ur suppossed to get ur female dog spayed before she goes into her first heat and if she already went into heat wait for like a few weeks before spaying her that way all her hormones can go back to normal so yeah if ur goint to get her spayed do before her first heat well i hope i was any help.
I have read veterinary studies regarding spaying and neutering as young as 8 weeks of age. With no ill effects, with the exception of really small dogs. Then the only issue was hypothermia on the operating table. But nothing to do with growth of the dog.
He's your friend,your partner,your defender your dog.You are his life,his love,his leader. He will be yours faithful and true to the last beat of his heart.You owe it to him to worthy of such devotion
the reason for that is that was a way of knowing for sure the dog was over 6 months of age. That must be an old time vet you went to.
Yes, there are of growth issues with neutering young. Many breeders who sell puppies on a neutering contract do not allow it until they are over a year old because of it interfearing with their growth.
Personally I think the risk of cancer trumps the "growth" issue.
To the OP - get your dog spayed asap. To allow more unwanted puppies to come into this world is just plain irresponsible when we are killing nice healthy companion animals by the millions every year simply because there are no homes for them.
And your dog should never be outside unsupervised ESPECIALLY when in heat.
