Default Advice on phantom pregnancy please

hi, can anyone give me some advise please, i have a gorgegous very large female rottweiler called sasha... to cut a long story short.. i thought she may be pregnant as her nipples were getting large and saggy so i took her to the vets last week to be checked over.. he said he couldn't feel anything and said it was a phantom pregnancy... but it was possible that she could be pregnant with maybe just 1 or 2 pups and they could but under her rib cage..hence him not being able to feel any pups... anyway my question is.... With a phantom pregnancy do they actually go through a phantom labour.. i know this sounds really stupid and you may think im some kind of idiot... its just that she has been acting very strange for the last few hours now..ie.. she is walking around whinning and she is panting a lot also she has taken herself into our very small bathroom..lol... which is so unusual of her as she is normally in whatever room we are in... she is like my shadow... where i go.. sasha goes ! she has now been cramped in the bathroom for about 2 hours.... anyone with any answers or advise...please help....thank you Tracey

Default phantom pregnancy

hi can anyone help please.... if a dog has a phantom pregnancy do they go through a phantom labour.... i know this sounds crazy... i thought my rotty could be pregnant so took her to the vet last week but he thought it was just a phantom pregnancy... but for the last few hours she's been acting strange ie... walking round whinning.. panting a lot also she has taken herself up to my extremely small bathroom..lol where she has stayed for the last 2 hours normally she would be by my side... she is like my shadow.... so the question again is do the go through a phantom labour or could she infact be pregnant and in labour.... my vet did say he thought it was just a phantom but she is a very very large girl and he did say it could be possible she is pregnant with maybe just 1 or 2 pups that could be under the rib hence him not being able to feel anything any advise would be great thank you Tracey

Yes some bitches do have phantom labours. I know one of mine did. If it is just a phantom. Then give her a soft toy to mother, it may help her feel better

let me know how it go's. and how she is in the morning. would be a shock to you if you did wake up to a pup or two. one of my dogs had 3 pups. it was hard to tell she was pregnant , so it can happen.

There are false pregnancies even in spayed dogs, do not know why and I have never in all my years of breeding experienced this.

I suggest giving it a rubber doll or stuffed toy as said, ignore it and it will get over it. Might want to call the vet to make sure they do not want to give meds if she fills with any amount of milk because of mastitus.
