How Long Before You Can Visually See That A Dog Is Pregnant?

Do The Teats Enlarge Right Away..or Take Time To Develop?

Please take your dog to the Vet ASAP and get her spayed

It depends on the dog. Typically her vulva will remain swollen and she may become more quite. If you saw her tied with a male count from that date and she sould deliver on our about day 63 but anywhere from day 58 to 65. As her pregnancy develops you will notice that she will eat more, her teats will enlarge or remain in large (they can become enlarged during her heat cycle.). A vet can palpate at day 28 and feel pups. You may not be able to notice until after day 40.

Is this an unplanned pregnancy? You may want to find someone in your are with expereince to assist you as pregnancy, whelping and raising pups can be a taxing ordeal for both you and the bitch. It is advisable to have her checked at the vet and to find out how much a c-section will cost and have the money on hand incase of an emergancy. Should she need a c-section the vet can spay her at the same time.
