can my dog get pregnant while she is still bleeding

This answer was rated:

can my dog get pregnant while she is still bleeding?

Dr. K :

Hello,

Dr. K :

Yes, she can.

Dr. K :

That is a pretty long time to bleed...however, some dogs will go that long.

Customer :

do you think now is a good time to try and breed her?

Customer :

she usually bleeds for about 21 days

Dr. K :

In most cases, the bitch is not in standing heat until after the bleeding has stopped...but, some are fertile at the end of their bleeding.

Dr. K :

You will best be able to tell when she is fertile, by whether or not she will allow the male to mount her.

Dr. K :

She will let him know.

Dr. K :

If she is in standing heat, and therefore fertile...she will allow mating to occur.

Dr. K :

If she is not in standing heat, then she will not allow it.

Dr. K :

It is that simple.

Customer :

thank you for your advice!

Dr. K :

Dr. K :

I wish you good luck, and lots of puppies!!!
