    if the vets as said she is not pregnant, she could be having a phantom pregnacy, they will devlop teats and express milk and very often go quiet and depressed.

    Hi

    You could get her scanned

    Did you mate her yourself if so do you know how far gone she is?

    Most vets dont know what there talking about when it comes to pregnant dogs, but this isnt to say they are wrong!
    You could always get a scan and see what thats says!

    Cant afford to get her scanned?

    Why on earth did she mate her then? to get money!!!

    C-sections cost 600 pound hows she going to afford that if she needs it? the worming of the pups? Any vet treatment, advertising, weaning, rearing, microchips and jabs for them?

    Please god i hope she isnt pregnant for the sake of her and her puppies. Get her spayed and leave breeding to those who allow there dogs to have puppies to improve the breed not for monetary gain!

    :mad:

    I think she needs to get some money (i dont know how) into a bank account incase of an emergancy!
    If you need any help or advice i will be more than willing to help.!! But you really need some money aside just incase it all doesnt go well..
    you also need money for the up bringing of pups! witch i can asure you it isnt cheap!

    this could have been avoided :(

    Hi, I dont know much about breeding dogs but i do know that everyone should give this guy a chance first before arguing, he is only asking for advice. Its not his dog either so i dont think he should be getting all these questions thrown at him.

    Not going here again.
    OP is asking for advice, not criticism
    Lets see if we can help rather then judge

    Some times you have to ask questions to know how to advise!

    all i can sugest is get her scanned by lending the money as people have said it will only cost £28 or so but that way you'll know whats happening rather then guessing is she pregnant.
