  • I'm no vet but I think that if you mated your dog 7 weeks ago you should be able to tell by now whether or not she is pregnant due to the size of her abdomen. Dogs pregnancies last about 63 - 68 days (i.e less than 10 weeks) so at 7 weeks, your dog should be quite heavily pregnant.
  • WHEN I MATED MY SHIH TZU SHE GAVE BIRTH EXACTLY 56 DAYS AFTER. BREEDS DIFFER, IF I WERE YOU ID START STOCKING UP NEWSPAPER BLANKETS ETC. THE WEEK BEFORE SHE IS DUE HER PUPS WILL DROP, MANY DOGS HIDE PREGNANCY ESPECIALLY THEIR FIRST LITTER UNTIL THEY ARE READY TO GIVE BIRTH SO SHE MAY JUST LOOK CHUNKY AT FIRST THEN WILL LOOK HUGE. WHEN MISSY WAS PREGNANT I COULD HARDLY TELL BUT LOOKING BACK AT PHOTO'S SHE LOOKED A MESS. DONT WORRY IF YOUR BITCH LOOSES A LOT OF HAIR AS THIS IS NORMAL ALL DOGS DO IT. WHEN THE PUPS ARE WEANED START RUBBING BIO OIL ONTO HER STOMACH TO HELP IT RETURN TO NORMAL. HER NIPPLES WILL ALWAYS STAY BIG AND IF YOU HAVE A LOT OF PUPS SUPPLEMENT WITH PUPPY FORMULA AS MUCH AS YOU CAN TO HELP HER OUT
