    DefaultFirst early signs of pregnancy??

    If a dog has been breed and she is only about 2-3 weeks along what are the early signs that things took? Is there a change in their personality???

    They can become a bit clingy. On virgin bitches I can usually tell by looking at the nipples. The ones closest to the elbows will usually start poking through the coat.

    Yes, she is a virgin bitch Laura - I was told she is VERY demanding right now. Thanks for the info.

    Yeah, I guess the dams sister had been breed in September and the tests had been done etc. but it didn't take and they have realized these girls have split heats and were afraid that they didn't catch this one in time - but I am optimistic. Fingers crossed - October 19th we should know for sure!!

    Apparently there is a new office that has opened up and the staff is supposed to be remarkable in the field of animal reproduction so I think they are going with the palpatation route to see first what they can find out.....

    Just out of curiosity, when is an appropriate time to ultrasound? Near the end of the term?

    My repro vet will do an ultrasound anytime after 28 days for just a general "yes" or "no" she's pregnant, then xray a week before her due date for a count.

    I rarely do an ultrasound, especially on a virgin bitch. I can usually tell before the ultrasound can whether or not she's preggers. Since most ultrasounds are guesses on the number of pups, I do an xray about 5 days before her first due date to try and pin the number down. Of course, you can't always get an exact number with xray either. We found 6 with Libby's first and she ended up with 11. They were so packed in her they were piled on top of each other.
