When is a dog too young to give birth?
A dog at the age of 1-2 is too young to give birth!
Yes, it's quite possible for a dog to get pregnant in its first year. But it should be prevented. They are still puppies themselves! Spaying a female dog at a young age (not too young) will stop a female dog from having the urge to mate, and will also stop her from going in to heat. Dogs who get pregnant in their first year often have less healthy puppies and smaller litters. Young dogs giving…
my vet told me it IS ok. i was worried if i DIDN'T give her anything, either A. she would cough so hard she would go into early labor, or B. she would give birth and would still not be over kennel cough and then would pass it on to the puppies, which could be fatal since they are too young to receive the vaccine and they have low immune systems. my vet said it…
no, a dog is never too young, as long as the treats are small and easy to chew. You should also make sure not to treat your dog too much, since it will get used to this and expect treats all the time, which could cause him or her to be uninterested in normal dog food, which it needs to eat in order to get all the nutrition it needs.
Yes but there might be difficulties. The female dog has to be the medium sized dog because if the male is quite a good size bigger than the female then the female's puppies would be too big for her to give birth to, and then she would need a c-section. If the dog doesn't get the c-section, she and her puppies will most likely die.
It's ok to give him fruit , as long as you peel the skin, give it to your dog in small quantities, don't give your dog grapes, and lots of regular dog food, too. If you don't peel the skins off, your dog will get diarrhea. But if you don't want to go through all this trouble, than simply don't give your dog fruit.
