I have a six...

I have a six almost 7 yr old pomeranian\chichiuha she is in heat if she gets pregnant would it harm her health

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. We need to be extra careful with pregnancies, so we'll need to connect you with the Veterinarian ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?

No she is in good health

Hi. Dr. W here. First two quick questions: Has she had a litter before? and Does she have any underlying health conditions?

No she hasnt and no she doesnt

Okay. To answer your question, there is no real reason why pregnancy should hurt her. But it is good to keep in mind that chihuahuas and other toy breed dogs often require c-sections for safe delivery because they are so tiny. It would be wise to call your vet ahead of time and find out how much a c-section costs where you live and have the money available (or setup a payment account such as CareCredit) ahead of time.

Even though she is as big as the Pomeranian still a c section?

No, probably not if she is as big as a Pomeranian, especially if you are breeding her to a small male. But, it's just something to keep in the back of your mind.
