    Hi I just thought i would let you know that when my dog was laying on her side today I have noticed a lump i felt her tummy very softly and could feel something round and hard I am just wondering would this be a skull she is 4 weeks this week her appetite has severly increased over the past couple of days and she has become quite moody with my other dog also everytime we stroke her belly she puts her head to her bell and starts licking does these sound like the signs of pregnancy just to recap I took her to the vets last week and the vet said she didd'nt think she was pregnant but could'nt be 100%sure if anybody has any thoughts that would be great thanks

    Maybe now you have felt it, either take her to another vet for a second opinion or take her back to your original vet and say "what is this then?. xxx

    Sorry i didnt see this before but like others have said you could take her to a vets for a second opinion but that doesnt mean that the 2nd vet wont have the same opinion as the first!!
    Vets imo dont really have a clue about pregnant bitches and dont know what they are looking/feeling for..Im afraid that comes down to years of experince..

    Its also been known one several occasions for a scan to be done and the owner to be told the bitch is not pregnant and the bitch later goes on to have pups! So the scan isnt alway 100% either!
    We did have a bitch scanned and she was told there was 5 pups maybe 6 but defo no more than that! she went on and had 8...
    Imo if you havent got the experince to know what your feeling for then your going to just have to play the waiting game!! (Even with the experince you cant always feel pups) Of course if your worried about your bitch health then the vets is the best place to go!

    Hope this helps
