Being a dog owner brings a ton of responsibility as well as joy. There will be many times when your dog won’t be behaving normally. This means a sudden lack in appetite and activity, etc. During these times it is crucial to be able to identify what it is that’s wrong. Your dog could be enceinte. Or it just might not be feeling well. You should know the difference so that you can act accordingly.
1. Change in Appetite
The first sign is the lack of appetite. If your dog has changed the way she is eating and her eating habits fluctuate, then it means she might be enceinte. This lack of appetite is not worrying so don’t stress about it. This will only happen for a while and your dog will soon go back to her old eating habits. Don’t try to force her with treats and wait the time period out.
Moreover, this lack of appetite will only be in the initial period though, and once she’s in the second half of the pregnancy, her appetite will increase.
2. Decreased Physical Activity
If your dog is hyperactive and gets really lazy all of a sudden, then it’s a sign. Try to figure out what it is. Decreased physical activity is often a sign of pregnancy. Keep a track on your dog’s activity. This happens during the first two weeks of the pregnancy and will lessen as time passes.
Like humans, dogs also tend to vomit during pregnancies. The morning sickness that tons of women go through happens to dogs as well. They may occasionally vomit. This can be before or after their meal time. Most of the vomiting takes place in the early days/weeks of the pregnancy and there’s nothing to worry about. If it persists for even after that and gets excessive then you should take her to a vet to get expert help.
4. Changes in Mood
Keep an eye on your dog’s behavior when you think she might be enceinte. This cannot be very hard to notice as these changes are often very visible. If you dog is loud she might get really quick because of the hormonal changes. If she used to be very touchy then she might get reserve.
Dogs loving to spend time with people might end up liking alone time. This means she might at times prefer to be alone away from the hustle bustle.
5. Body Changes
Of course, there will be a lot of changes in her body as well. The tummy will start to get bigger after about 35 days of being enceinte. Other than that, her nipples may grow in size. Sometimes the nipples also tend to turn darker in color. This is nothing o worry about and happens only because of the increased blood flow. The areolas will become more rounded than usual.
There might be mucus discharge a month after the mating period. So look out for that if you want early pregnancy signs.
