Are puppies on the way?

dog-with-puppiesIf you suspect that your dog is pregnant, the best way to find out for sure is to take her to the veterinarian. There are some possible clues that you may look for at home.  For example, you may notice that your dog seeks your attention more often.  Pregnant dogs can also have ravenous appetites.  Finally, you might observe large mammary glands and a clear vaginal discharge that appears about a month into the pregnancy.  These signs may indicate that your dog is pregnant but they are by no means a diagnosis.  If you do suspect that your dog may be expecting, take her in for an exam.  The veterinarian will palpate the uterus or perform an ultrasound to confirm the pregnancy. If she is pregnant, make sure that she’s comfortable and buy her another dog toy for her to enjoy!
