I have a female that weighs about 5 pounds and a male that weighs 2-3 ponds. How big would the puppies be? I took her to the vet and he can't feel the pups but i have seen the puppies moving in her abdomen. The vet seems to think it's a emotional pregnancy. She has totally changed in behavior and her abdomen is bigger than normal, can the vet be incorrect? I don't know what to do.
The size of pups depend on lots more then their parents. A dog will not only through itself to a litter, but also the genes of its parents. So it depends on the bloodlines on the dog and bitch. Selective breeding and following the bloodlines is what good breeders do.
Yes a false pregnancy is extremly possible. I had a bitch even lactate, but no pups. An x-ray is the best way to find out if your dog is actually pregnant. How far along is she? An x-ray can only be done in the last couple of weeks. It is a hard truth, but depending on the actual time frame, your vet could be right.
