Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
Ideally, no. Anytime that we know that a dog has had problems in the past, we should avoid breeding them as there's a very good chance that they will have problems again. If you do choose to breed her again, she needs to have a supplement approved by your vet for her needs typically started at least halfway through the pregnancy and especially through her nursing. Keep in mind that dogs can die from eclampsia, so the risk does exist of Chloe having major complications and you being left to hand raise a litter of orphaned puppies, which may include around the clock feedings for 4-6 weeks. Take this into consideration before making the decision to breed her again. My recommendation would be to spay her and allow her to live the remainder of her life as a pet.
