How can i tell if my dog is pregnant, she is drinking alot of water and her belly is big and hard. She has not been eating
To determine with accuracy if your dog is pregnant, you should take her to the veterinarian who will perform ultrasound-based tests.
After entering the advanced age, it is not advisable for female dogs to have puppies, because the probability of something going wrong during the process is quite high:
- The delivery may be complicated and the dog may not have enough strength to expel all the puppies.
- The puppies can suffer malformations.
- It is possible that the puppies die inside the dog's uterus before the delivery, endangering the dog's life if it is not detected on time.
If your dog is pregnant and you decide to continue with the pregnancy, it is necessary to have veterinary supervision during the whole process to avoid serious problems in the future.
All the best for you and Socks.
