Arrow Pregnant dog - pregnancy signs in dogs - Answered by C. Robinson


How do you know if your dog is pregnant?


If you witnessed the mating chances are your dog is pregnant. You can calculate 62-63 days gestation period from the mating date.

If you did not witness the mating than evidence of pregnancy will only be evident several weeks into the gestation (between week 6-8).
At this time an X-ray taken at your veterinarian will confirm fetuses.

Signs late in the gestation period

The female's mammary glands will have started to swell up with milk..
Behavioral changes such as turning in circles in search of a nest, anxiousness, decreased appetite, and a characteristic decrease in body temperature to 100 degrees Fahrenheit 24 hours before giving birth. (Normal body temperature 100.5-102.5F).

Late but maybe useful for others asking the same question

I know this posting is late for your whelping situation, but several professional breeders have provided valuable content on my website for dog breeders at. Hopefully though my posting could be valuable for others with similar questions. I also built an online that may be useful to the partcipants here. You supply the first date your dog was bred and it returns a date range of possible whelping dates for your dog so you don't have to do the math. My is available at. But as always, we recommend you spay and neuter your dogs to be a responsible dog owner.
