Default Scans for pregnancy - necessary ?

Is it necessary to scan a dog for pregnancy around day 24 - if so, any idea of the rough cost ?
Also, can the Vet determine a pregnancy in a dog towards the end of the fourth week of possible pregnancy (they say day 24)without using scans, and is it true they can be exact on the number of pups ?
Is it that necessary to know how many pups ? (Considering you go to the vet if they have had the puppy sac visable for half an hour with no pup being born ?)
If my wee one is pregnant, it will be my first time being an overlooking mum - so I am reading up all the info I can, but cannot find this out. Will probably phone our vet this week anyway and probably take her in for a check up.
I am at home all the time, so if she is pregnant I will be around the whole time and for the birth, and I was brought up on a farm so have seen many births of all kinds, though not dogs ! I watched many lambs, calves, guinea-pigs, hamsters and kittens being born !
(I have homes for any pups I have, and I will probably keep one myself.)
Any advice would be greatfully appreciated - but most of it I can find out from books and friends, though I know a fair bit already.
It's just this scanning process !

Is she pregnant already?

I've bred dogs for a long time, though not Yorkies, two of the terrier breeds.
i've never had them scanned so can't give any advice about that, sorry.

I took my girl to the vet yesterday. she is at day 39. He felt her stomach and said she feels pregnant to him. He did not try to count the puppies. He said we could do a scan but they aren't real reliable.

He said an xray is more accurate. That cannot be done till day 50 or later.

My vet said the xray would be $58, he did not charge me for yesterdays visit.

Since it's my first time and her first litter, I believe I will take her in for the xrays around day 55.

YEH....THANKS all for all that sound advice !
You have told me stuff I don't have a clue about, so thanks so much for that !
Jeanie - that is great to know the rough price....our vets always charge consultation fees too, but it gives me some idea.
Yes, Meggie, she was mated 27 days ago....so I am waiting and counting ! She doesn't LOOK pregnant to me, and I can't feel anything moving, though I don't press or anything.....and her nipples aren't huge or milking, but only have a wee bit of padding in them....though they say it is in the last week or two you notice the changes.
She was mated by my male to hopefully have one or two pups. She is three years old and this will be her first and last pregnancy if it works. I would keep one if she has any, and I have friends (retirees) who can't afford huge prices, and whom I have said I would let them have one if she has any. They are small dogs, so perfect for them, and if anything happens to the new owners then I can take them back and keep them. Also I can walk them all together which will be great !
Maybe she isn't pregnant....don't know if I would go through all that again if she isn't. I would maybe just get her neutered like my other female.
Thanks again....will take that all on board, and phone the vet to see if they need to check her or not.

Default Maybe she is !

Ooooooooh !
Today, Tammy has been very quiet, sleepy, and more lovey than usual. I washed her, and was delighted to see that on day 28 she now has 6 nipples with padding under them, and has a definate wee belly on her which was never there before ! I am very excited ! After thinking she wasn't showing any signs, though she was sick once a few weeks ago - which she never is, and has been burpy, which is not normal for her - I am thinking she could be !!!
If I hadn't washed her I might not have noticed her tum so easily until a few days more into her cycle.
Ooooooh ! I hope she is !!!
I have gently been feeling for pups, (no pressure though just in case I hurt her)but have now read up on it, and I am just away to have a feel again.
Haven't taken her to the vet after most think it's not necessary, though I may yet at some point...I'll see how it goes.
happy excited Debra

Sounds like she is.
Some of mine had "morning sickness" too.

Sometimes it's only in the last couple of weeks that you can be certain. As I said, I never had the scans or Xrays, you'll know soon enough & personally I try to avoid too much interference or unnecessary vet visits in early pregnancy, too many sick dogs there!

I am going through the same thing with Darla..the waiting game...although the past couple days I believe I have felt movement and my daughter says she felt something tonight too!! Darla's tummy is getting very firm also...so I am 90% sure she is pregnant..

Good luck with your possible pregnancy and keep us posted!!

Dawn

Thanks for that Dawn......I am no good at waiting, and being my first time I am sooooo excited !!! Have wanted to do this for 7 years now !

What day is your Darla on ? Is she further on than mine ?
Tammy is day 31, her nipples have padding underneath, are firm, and today are very pink. She has a deffo wee belly dropping down when I washed her the other day, and she never has that....she is quiet, sleepy, loving, easily upset by noise...and barks at slightest noise - not like her !!! Not playing as much as she usually does, either.

It's doing my head in....roll on a week or two when the signs are more obvious !
At least you have felt movement ! Lucky you !
Is she further ahead ? DEBRA x x x x

Wow. Have family there, and my mum was born in Brooks Alberta, they lived near Ponoka, had a farm on the prairie, have relatives near Vancoover and Toronto and all over the East....my mum has done a family tree, and even my Dad who is Scottish has close Canadian relatives too. All my life we have had Canadians over every year to stay at my Grannie's. She is dead now, though still has some bro's and sis's left over there - but my Mum keeps in touch with them all, and has been back several times. I am desperate to go, and will one day as we've so many friends and relatives and I am the only one who hasn't been over !

What size is your female Darla ?

Debra x x x x
