My Rottweiler is pregnant...

My Rottweiler is pregnant as of Jan 11 should she have milk yet in her teets? This is her second pregnancy and the first one she barely had milk I had to bottle feed most of them. Wonder if it’s going to happen again

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. We need to be extra careful with pregnancies, so we'll need to connect you with the Veterinarian ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your dog?

I don’t think so.

Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand you want to know when to expect mammary development in your pregnant dog. This answer to this question is that it is quite variable. Some dogs have significant mammary development barely halfway through pregnancy and others where it does not occur until after labor. This is likely related to genetic factors passed on through the bloodlines from the paternal and maternal sides. If she did not produce much milk in the first pregnancy then I would expect much the same with the next one as well.
