Default Questions about pregnancy

My GSD is pregnant. We had a ultrasound done and the vet counted 7-8 puppies. He also said she is about 28-30 days pregnant. BTW this litter is a accident. A friend was dog sitting and her dog got her so I was told. My questions are........How long till her belly gets big? And what are the odds of her absorbing or losing the puppies before they are born? Thanks

I don't know if it's possible to predict that, but if you don't want her to have this litter you can do a spay termination. http://www.marvistavet.com/html/body...rmination.html

Otherwise, I'd start planning how you're going to find good homes for the puppies.

Usually they start looking fuller, especially with a large litter, after 4.5 weeks.

Aborting the litter can happen. Friend had her bitch abort her litter 2 weeks before she was due.

Cassidy's Mom's suggestion is a good one.

We do this routinely in rescue and I can tell you it is safe, and the girls didn't mind at all they weren't becoming mamas.
