2. How to Care for a Pregnant Dog

Since pregnancy in dogs can't be confirmed until almost a month after fertilization, owners may not know about a dog's pregnancy in the beginning stages. That's fine since dogs don't require any special care in the very beginning of their pregnancies. After the first trimester, pregnant dogs may need special supplements, increased food, and decreased activity. A veterinarian can help recommend the right diet and activity level.
