  • They can get morning sickness at around 10-14 days, and her nipples would have already grown, and you may even see milk leaking from them, its not always easy to tell until they are just a few wks from delivering. Was you dog bred?

  • just wait in see if she has puppies. some dogs will have fake pregnancies. worse comes to worse she has puppies you sell them then have enough money to get her spayed when she is done with the litter then you won't have that problem again.

  • Speaking from recent experience. We had an accidental liter 3 months ago. The only change in our dog was her nipples were more swollen then in a normal cycle. We were getting ready to take her to be checked out, but she had puppies before her vet visit. Keep a close eye on her and you might want to switch the food to a puppy brand just in case. Good Luck!

  • Long ago we had a dashund, and she got super fat in her belly area. That was an accidental thing too.
