Customer Question

My dog is 8 years-old and pregnant. She's about 1 month into the pregnancy, but today she's acting strange. She's breathing heavily and kind of shaking at the same time and all she wants to do is lay down. I'm getting scared and worried at the same time please help me!

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on Cookie, please?

Her change in behavior is worrisome but her symptoms aren't pathognomonic (specifically indicative) of any one particular disorder. If they've persisted, her vet will want to thoroughly examine Cookie including ultrasounding her uterus in order to better understand fetal health.

Hi Palmiro,

I'm just following up on our conversation about Cookie. How is everything going?
