    Default How to Tell when Your Bitch is in Pup???

    As the title states, how do you tell when yur bitch is in pup?

    I have a female Staffy that I havent yet seen come into heat but her udder is staring to look fullish like she is getting boobs. Our male staffy which is younger tries to hump the girls heads but Ive never seen him on the right end lol Im crossing fingers she is just hormonal or something to make these changes and that they are temporary as she is not old enough and I was going to have her de-sexed

    I dont need lectures guys just advice

    Could she just be coming into season?

    Maybe keep her and your male separated in case she is coming into season.

    Fingers crossed for you that she isn't in pup.

    Take her to the vet and get her an abortion if you aren't sure. Hopefully she isn't too far along if she is with pups.

    Was this her first heat SS ?

    Have you noticed any other changed behaviour in her such as being more clingy to you/things? Is she dropping coat everywhere?

    Nothing can beat a vet test for ensuring she's in pup though

    How old is she? she may have had a silent heat, apparently this can happen. Best to get her checked I would say. Spayed bitches are certainly much easier and worry free especially if you have an un neutered boy in the house!

    This would be her first season, the only change other than her teats is that she has become agrssive toward the older desexed female...

    She is just 10mths old

    I plan to get her and Morgan desexed but I have just spayed 2 female cats and 2 female dogs so Im still saving for the others.

    You need to get her to a vet. If she is filling with milk and she isn't in pup there is a chance she is having a phantom pregnancy. She is also at risk of getting mastitis.

    Whats the latest that they can abort? And whats the costs involved? I know this also depends of vets but just a ballpark

    If the bitch is very early on the fee should be the same as a usual desexxing.
    Every vets fees vary, so you will need to discuss it with your vet

    Good luck. Please let us know how it all goes.
