    Could be a phantom pregnancy

    @Rafa what's the best day to have a scan?

    If I’d not took her for scan I would have thought she’s pregnant total change in her very clingy just wondered if anyone else has had a scan and be told not pregnant but then goon on to have puppies

    Sounds exactly like a phantom pregnancy. Dogs don't really exhibit pregnancy signs and they really don't produce milk until much later on in their pregnancy, if at all till labour/birth

    You would not expect a bitch to be showing any signs at 31 days of pregnancy. The symptoms you describe would suggest a false pregnancy.

    Given that she has scanned empty, I would assume she is not pregnant.
