Use a search engin next time. 5-6 months is rediculous. A dog os pregnant from 55-70 days

They're actually both wrong. 5-6 months would mean that the pups had died in the mom and it would have by then killed her too. 55-70 days is slightly off too. 58 is about the minimum and if your dog tarrys until 70 days the pups have probably died. 63 days is the average time. Tanisha

My dog just had puppies.  Its usually about 2 months.  The vet said sometimes sooner.

The answer is 61 to 63 days.  But all of your answers were very thoughtful.  I don't think 5 to 6 months is ridiculous.  You took a shot, good for you.

I believe that the 5-6 months was referring to the time in between heat cycles for some dogs as this is the case for chihuahuas-according to my vet.  Otherwise 5-6 months is too long and sounds more like the pregnancy of a small pony.

Hello, from all I have read that a dog is pregnant 59 to 63 days.... anything before the 59th day the pups may not make it.  Now Help me please .. My dog is pregnat how far along I am , she went into heat sometime in april... after the 6th I believe (my aunt died thats why I can't recall) I am guessing between now and the next 10 days... She miscarried 1 puppy. Thursday night.. is it possible to still have all the rest normal and healthy?  oh and to the one who's dog is on day 67... I think you should call the vet.. I can't help you on that one..

Anyways i predict that it is that because most of you said it was and my neighbors dog had like 7 puppies and that took about 5 months because that is how long i have been living at my new house so i kept track and i am doing a report on dogs and that is the average lenth of a dogs pregnatsey. Thanks and if you have any questions email me at Seto_is_a_babe_to@yahoo.com or just rate what you think is true and i will check and see if i have 5 stars. thankyou and have a good day

Pregnancy, also called the gestation period, ranges from 60 to 67 days, averaging 63 days.  Most dogs deliver (whelp) between days 63 and 65.  The only way to accurately determine the stage of pregnancy is to count days from the time of breeding.  If at all possible, the breeding date(s) should be recorded.  The mother should be examined three weeks after breeding to confirm her pregnancy.

You count 58 to 63 days from the day she got her period. You will Know when she starts making her nest or rests in the litter box a lot. She will stop eating about 24 hours before she has them. Every dog is different.

Thanks for the answer. Since most people said 58-63 days thats what i believe. which is exciting because my dog has been pregnant around 50 days. We're all excited but its weird because my dog is a mix between lab, chow and German shepherd and the daddy is a Bassett hound. I cant wait to see what the pups will look like. Oh and the person that said 5-6 months needs to get of the crack pipe.

She had toxemia and passed away last night.  I really do not understand what happened.  She was fine then she was dead and all the puppies too.  Can anyone give me some answers?

Ok your cat can't have been pregnant for 5 yrs that is logically impossible, and a dogs gestation period is on average 62 days, and depending on the breeding dates the normal variation is 54-72 days!

Is this a sign that she could be pregnant? If so, isnt that something the shelter should have told me?

Well Catlovers if your cat has been pregnant for 5 years, that means the kittens have died.If they have, the mother may die or not, because the mother cat carn'tlive with kittens in her stomach, If you think that way, you should take your cat to the vet ( if your cat is still alive ).I took my dog to the vet when she was pregnant and she said that "My dog will be having pups in 4-5 months.

I am a Siberian Husky breeder. I female dog will usually have her pups on the 59-63rd day. A female dog however can deliver her pups a few days earlier or later. It is very important to keep track of the date she was bred with the stud. Sometimes you actually don't know, so it is a guessing game on how along she is. If however you know when she actually was bred with the stud and she is more than 65 days pregnant it is a good idea to call a vet just to have her looked at (does not mean anything is wrong, nature comes on her own time). My female Siberian Husky is actually on her 64th day today and showing signs, a female dog will usually not go over 64-65 days. A female dog is usually in heat for 3 weeks. The first week she is bleeding and will not except a stud, the second week she will except a stud, and the third week is her ending week and will no longer except. So for one whole week a female dog will except, so if you do not know exactly when she connected with the stud it is a guessing game for how along pregnant she is, 7 days is a lot of days to guess with.

Care For A Pregnant Dog.
What to expect when your dog is expecting!

Are you getting ready for your dog to have puppies?  Having a litter of pups sounds like a lot of fun, but there is much work involved.  Here are some tips on how to get your dog and you ready for birth.

The first thing to know is that your dog will be pregnant on average for 63 days.  This is not very much time so make sure you are ready.

You will want to make sure that you are feeding your pregnant dog appropriately.  Your dog will need to eat more than usual and you may want to transition to a growth type food or puppy food during the pregnancy.  You should do this by decreasing the amount of regular food you give your dog each day while increasing the amount of new food.  Itís best if you do this over the course of about a week to help prevent loose stool.  Check with your veterinarian to see what is appropriate for diet.  Make sure to feed your dog a high quality diet.  You do not need to supplement the diet with vitamins unless it is recommended by your veterinarian.  Always follow their recommendations.  Your dog may experience symptoms similar to human morning sickness around the third week of pregnancy.  If this lasts longer than one week, take your dog to the veterinarian to see if there are any underlying problems.

You will want to continue regular walks with your dog during the pregnancy.  It is important to get some exercise, but if you have a working dog or do sports with your dog, you will want to discontinue these until after the puppies are weaned.  However, three weeks prior to delivery, you will want to isolate your pregnant dog from all other dogs.  This must continue until at the very least, three weeks after the puppies are born.  There are infectious diseases carried by unvaccinated dogs that may not be very harmful to adult dogs but can be fatal to puppies.  

If your dog is due for vaccination during the pregnancy, hold off on this until after the puppies are weaned.  Vaccination during pregnancy can be harmful to the fetuses.   Ideally, you will want to have your dog vaccinated just prior to breeding.

When getting ready to deliver, make sure to provide a comfortable place for whelping and  raising the puppies.  It should be somewhere where your dog can come and go, but the puppies are confined to.  

When it is time to deliver, your dogís body temperature will drop slightly.  You can monitor this with a rectal thermometer. Normal canine temperature is between 100-102 degrees.  When it drops below 100 degrees, you can usually expect labor in 24 hours.  When your dog starts to go into labor, she will become restless and may pant, shiver, or vomit.  This is normal.  Make sure to provide fresh water to her at all times.  This stage of labor may last up to 12 hours.  When she begins to deliver the pups, they will be covered with a thin membrane which must be cleared away.  The mother should do this herself, but should she neglect to do this, you will need to clear it away or the pup will suffocate.  You will need to tie the umbilical cords in a knot and cut them above the knot.  Pups will come about one per hour with up to half an hour of straining in between deliveries.  It is not unusual for your dog to take a break of a few hours during delivery.  

You will need to call your veterinarian if your dog does not deliver within one day of her temperature drop, she is straining to deliver for more than an hour, takes more than a four hour break between pups, seems to be in great pain, or has been pregnant for more than 70 days.  Some breeds require cesarean sections so make sure to discuss this with your doctor prior to delivery.  If you feel that anything else unusual is occurring, contact your veterinarian immediately.

It is always important to discuss all of your concerns and what to expect with your veterinarian prior to delivery.
