Customer Question

my pregnant dog's milk has come in, does this means she'll be going into labor soon?

When a dog's milk comes in, it can indicate that she may go into labor within about a week. A dog's gestational period is an average of 63 days, so if you know when she mated with the male, this will give you a better idea, within a few days.
