9an dogs get pregnant even if they aren't in heat?

My dog has only gone into heat once in 18 mos but she's a skinny dog and looks like she's gained just a little in her lower tummy. She isn't acting any different.

  • i'm no expert so dont quote me on this but when female dogs are in heat thats when they're ovulating, so i suppose it CAN happen if they arent in heat but chances are low (i dont know if dogs can ovulate without being in heat or if they do it right before they go in heat if they can still get pregnant)

  • From what i have been told by breeders they go into heat and then they ovulate they are bread about a week or 2 after they stop bleeding. Call the Vet it doesn't hurt to ask

  • Get your dog fixed and then you won't have to worrry about it, unless you want her to have puppies that is. I agree, call the vet, it doesn't hurt to ask.
