My female Yorkie bred on...
My female Yorkie bred on December 6 & 8th. Had her x-rayed on January 15th. Vet said nothing showed up on X-ray and she is having a false pregnancy. (Gaining weight, breasts enlarged, etc.). She weighs 3 1/2 pounds. I’m so worried—should I️ get another opinion? Would an Ultrasound show anything more. Could the puppy or puppies be “behind” something?

Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with your pet today. Since I can’t physically exam your pet, I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. Remember there is no limit on how many questions you can ask to in order to clarify any information I have provided regarding your pet. I just have a few initial questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind? Has Frankie ever been bred before?
