Golden Retriever Pregnancy - Symptoms, Risks and Ways to Minimize Them

The golden retriever pregnancy is a very special situation for your dog so you need to know the basics. Let's take a look at what to expect, the risks and stages of a golden retriever's pregnancy.

Pregnancy in all dogs (and Golden Retriever is no exception) lasts for 63 days. This term may vary by 5 days and the Gold Retriever actually tends to give birth earlier. It is important to note that on the day you breed your Golden to provide valid physician information and be ready to serve.

At the Golden Fist stage you may be more affectionate than usual - he may start to follow you want to be petted all the time. However, some dogs are happier to be left alone. Loss of appetite and dogs equivalent to "morning sickness" are other signs of pregnancy.

However, after the first few weeks the symptoms went away and Golden became as playful as ever. The main symptom here is appetite. He not only regained his appetite but began to eat a lot. No need to introduce foods or vitamins into their diet. In fact you can't do it under any circumstances! Changes in diet are extremely dangerous as they can lead to the development of milk fever - potentially fatal.

Just feed him with high quality adult dog food and feed him as much as he wants. If you still feel you need to add another kind of adult dog food, gradually mix in regular food throughout the week to avoid stomach aches. It's a good idea to give you a pregnant Golden Retriever without access to her food. She really needs to eat a lot and her stomach can't hold enough food at all because of her pregnancy. So it is best to eat less but more often. And don't worry if he has a tendency to eat too much - in dogs this habit usually disappears.

Up to two or three weeks ago there was no need to limit your Golden Retriever to physical activity. The only thing to avoid is to walk long and walk long distances. However in the last two weeks you have to be careful not to break his stomach. Otherwise, the dog may knock on the uterus wall and their development will stop. As a result, you will have a puppy still giving birth.

It is interesting that the size of the stomach depends on the position of the puppies. Sometimes you won't know if the dog has been pregnant for the last ten or two days. In the last days before birth, he may start to throw away the water he just drank. You can also taste or see the milk coming from the nipple. However, that doesn't usually happen to first-time moms.

Worming and injection are not recommended during Golden Retriever pregnancy. When it's time for annual vaccination - just wait until she gives birth, safe to do when she is breastfeeding. If you still need to do the washing, you should consult your veterinarian for a safe pregnancy medication.
