    my dog has got very swollen nipples she has gone of her food and has put on weight .
    i took her to the vets and she said she couldnt feel any thing cos my dog was too tense so i should just wait and see if any puppys arrive.
    please can any one help i dont want to wait and see

    Hello Misty,
    How long has she been like this and when was it she had intercourse with another dog? It may be pregnant or it may be a false pregancy.. Best thing to do is observe her over a three weeks period taking notes of everything she does... Unfortunately no one not even vets can get nature right so best thing to do is see what nature decides is best on this occassion... Hope it goes good for ya :)

    A scan would confirm if your dog is pregnant and then you can start making the necessary arrangements, on average they are around £25-30 and can be done in your own home.

    hi, u should get ur dog to the vets and get her scanned to be able to tell for sure.... :) Sometimes dogs get into a phantom pregnancy and the sign are the same like it would be in a real pregnancy so the best thing to do is to get her scanned :)

    I noticed the vet felt all around her stomach with my bitch applying a little pressure near the rear... Try just having a gentle feel and see what you can feel if anything... Monitor her behaviour for the next two days and google search

    Dog pregnancy timeline your find useful information with dogs and side effects/symptoms

    Kindest regards

    No you can get an independant one and like I said they will come to your home. If she is pregnant you are rapidly running out of time :eek::eek:
    I would strongly recommend that if you can arrange one asap, then you can get the stuff you will need quickly.

    Have you felt any movement inside your girls tum?

    Just do a google search on Pet Scanning in your area, I obviously don't know where you live:)

    ok also what breed is she
    the scan is best option and realy sooner rarther than later
    my girl had one puppy once and she did not look like she was pregnant but she did have all signs she was so they can fool us;)

    vets can get things wrong:rolleyes:
