How will I know if my GSD is pregnant?
I bred my GSD Kara to an outstanding male. Unfortunately, Kara would not let him get near her at all during the time she was in heat, even the time she was ovulating. We just decided to do an artificial insemination and the vet said it would be a 50/50 chance of her becoming pregnant. I’ve been noticing some changes in her like some weight gain, not much but some, and every time I would feed her, she would eat like she's starving. I have kept track of the days and it is now the 57th day and today when I checked her, she isn't eating as much or won't eat at all, and when I squeezed her nipples, a little milk had come out. She doesn't look really fat and hasn’t gained so much weight to the point I can tell she is defiantly pregnant. Her behavior also is still the same. She is still very active. I have a whelping box for her she is in now, but all she does is just lay there. She doesn't dig or anything like that. This would be her first litter. She is also an older dog (8years old). The breeder who had her before me, showed her in confirmation and used her for protection work so that's why he never bred her at a earlier age. Anyway, what do you think? Could she pregnant? Or could she be having a false pregnancy? Please help anyone.
