    Hello,

    I am after any thoughts and opinions please. I mated my lab 3 weeks ago today and I have a scan booked to confirm if she is in pup or not in 2 weeks time but I’m wondering if I could get a scan booked in earlier any time in the next week would it be accurate and show? The reason being is I want to see if I can book a weekend away in October or not but if she is pregnant obviously nothing will be planned!!

    That’s great, thank you very much for the reply someone has been in touch to say that she will be able to scan for a definite yes or no on day 27 or after. Is there chance could still miss anything with it being quite early?
    Keep my fingers crossed!!! :)

    Scans are not always accurate but hopefully she is in pup and they will show up clearly

    Ok well its just a long wait now until next week but will keep my fingers crossed I wouldn’t say there’s any changes in her but I guess it’s only 3 weeks today so I shouldn’t really be seeing anything should I??

    No way to early to notice any physical changes

    28 day scans are very unreliable I would wait until day 32 I spoke to a scanner today about this topic as were in similar situations my bitch is 27 days post AI and I rush and got a scan and nothing showed so I panicked and spent £110 on a blood test from vets that’s confirmed pregnancy shes just to early to see on a scan I have to wait until day 32 for a rescan x

    I can confirm I got my dog scanned at 27 days and she is showing definitely 8 pups possibly 9...

    I’ve had this for years but replaced it a couple of times as it gets updated.

    I looked to see what’s on Amazon. The one with the Golden Retriever on is the one I have; the one with the BC/puppies I would guess is a newer version?

    You could check publishing dates.

    I have had a look and the ones with the BC on the cover seems to be the newer version but struggling to get it as although it is on Amazon it’s not showing as being delivered until earliest of October 5th and she is due around 22nd and the book shops all seem to be out of stock!! Doh...
