More Info On Dogs Gestation
Gestation in dogs lasts on average 63 days with variations between 58 and 68 days. Still, there might be some particular cases when the gestation period can be below or above the general average.
While the estimated due date is determined based on the general average of the gestation period length of dogs, the exact due date will most likely fall somewhere in the time interval assumed additionally.
To determine the expected puppies' delivery date as precisely as possible, it is essential to have a clear record of the day when the female had the first contact with the male. It is even possible for the female to not even get pregnant after the first meeting. Hence, it's important to also carefully watch if the first pregnancy signs start to occur.
Remember that a bitch needs extra attention and a proper diet during pregnancy. Various complications can also occur. Some breeds experience these more than others. If the animal feels sick and you suspect it is a problem, visit a veterinarian for a consultation.
