dog owners advice needed please

so i have a maltese mix who is about 2 well about 2 months ago i think he hurt his back and was a little sore for a while but has been 100% for like 6 weeks. well i am 39 weeks pregnant and for like the past month at least he has just been so whining !! i can take him out give him food water and treats and then he still just walks around and mopes and cries is it more likely he is still sore or just senseing the baby coming... has any one else had this happen??

  • its probably him being sore. i had a 135lbs german shepherd and he got hurt at his vet actually. they were forcing him to lay down and he tore all of the ligamnets in his knee, he had almost nothing left but we had no idea. the vet didnt even see it!!(needless to say we never went back there) but anyway, he would be great for a while and then all of a sudden he would get real whiny again out of nowhere. I would say its more likely him being sore then the baby. i know my dog never got whiney when i was pregnant, he was just very calm and comforting around me. i would say get him checked out. usually theyll just have you give him regular aspirin (i couldnt tell you the dose though) and that works wonders!! plus it avoids paying for a prescription!
