This answer was rated:

i have a 9 month old pug that i have desparately tried to separate from my stud for 2 weeks- tonight somehow he got out of his pen and attached himself to her- i have washed her out as best i can - i don''t want her pregnant-please advise!

The morning after pill is not known to be effective in dogs. There are numerous methods and/or medications that your vet may be able to offer you. Many will use hormones as a way to terminate pregnancy but this doesn't come without risks. Estrogens may cause bone marrow suppression and increases the risk of a uterine infection. Here is a site that contains loads of information and different methods. Your biggest problem is locating a vet who will dispense medication or treatment to you as many decline to treat when the risk is high for illness and dogs only have a 40% chance of becoming pregnant with just one breeding.

Please let me know if further assistance is needed.
