My Dog is pregnant again, actually my dog is pregnant for several times but still no puppy lives after giving birth... for 4 times my dog give birth to a dead puppies... I'm really frustrated about this and i really don't know what to do... What is the best thing I would do just to prevent my dog giving birth to a dead puppies? Is it posible that my dogs diet is the cause of the dead puppies? Coz my brother feed my dog 3 times a day. is it the right thing to do?

Your dog might have something wrong with her that is stopping her from having healthy puppies. You HAVE to go to a vet!!! Did you take her to a vet after any of the first 4 times she got pregnant? And I have to ask, why do you continue to breed your dog? I say spay her and stop worrying about all these puppies that are dying. You can not imagine how miserable your dog probably feels...being pregnant 4 times!!?!! Animals don't like pregnancy as much as humans do, especially when their puppies die (they do understand that and it makes them sad).

Actually I never took my dog to a vet... I know it's my fault but here in my country... vets price are to high... but still its not reasonable. Hmmmm in breeding... We are not monitoring the fertility of the dog, we just left it with other dogs. Yeah i know that they do have some feelings to that's why i need help on this... just some advice on their proper care of a pregnant dog.

I think the Best thing you can do for you and your dog is to get her spayed (AFTER this pregnancy). You'll come to find that have a litter of puppies is very expensive. If your dog continues to get pregnant it will cost you more money than it would if you had just spayed her. Spaying is just a one time cost, but if she continues to get pregnant...you'll be paying a lot of money every month! If you can't afford a vet visit for your pregnant dog, it is really time to stop letting her get pregnant. I would suggest either getting her spayed, or keeping her away from all male dogs from now on. Here are a couple links that may help you: http://www.peteducation.com/article.cfm?c=2+1628&aid=900 http://www.marvistavet.com/html/body_care_of_the_pregnant_dog.html Good luck!!!

I think its just normal that dogs eat three times a day. . I suggest that you bring your dog to a veterinarian, they would know better on this stuff.

That's what i thought but my friends advice me that the dog must eat only 1 meal a day for their balance diet.... is this right?

A dog should only have 1 meal a day for a balanced diet...I have 2 pure bred English Staffies & they only get fed once a day...my girl Josie has just come out of season & I'm pretty sure she's pregnant & will be due to give birth in about 2 months. She (& my male) only ever get 1 meal a day - even when pregnant & feeding puppies...I suggest you do the same as what I am now & that is saving up to get your dog neutuered...Josie is NEVER having another litter after this one.

Take care of your pregnant dog and soon you will be having cute little puppies. I like puppies because they are cute and playful.
