Hi lillypad,

Has it been determined that your girl is pregnant?

How far along is she?

Customer: replied 9 years ago.
I don't know if she is pregnant or not

Thank you for that information. Dogs can go through a false pregnacy during the third stage of heat that is why I asked if you were sure she was pregnant. A false pregnancy would show all the signs of a pregnant dog. To confirm if the dog is pregnant a sonogram should be done. If she is pregnant you may see milk between days 50-57. Most dogs give birth around day 63 . I am going to direct you to a site that talks about pregnancy, whelping, puppy development and what you need to have ready to help with birthing in case she is pregnant. A sonogram can be done around day 24.
