Confirming pregnancy! I found this REALLY great article on pretty much EVERY precaution and step you can take to help ensure a safe and full to term pregnancy. I think this article will be a great help to many who visit this section with questions regarding when to mate their bitch, when to get a sheep scanner or ultrasound done, when its safe to do an xray etc. It is written by someone who breeds french bulldogs, but I find that most of the information applies to anyone looking to breed their bitch!
