Are you a breeder? I'm not, but that doesn't sound very good to me. Have you tried raw? Maybe you need to take her to the vet and get some advice.

I feed mine Nature's Variety raw. I do know that it is necessary for pg dogs to get proper nutrition in order to maintain a healthy pregnancy. Maybe it would be a good idea for you to pm one of the breeders on the forum?

Wow, If you aren't an experienced breeder I would suggest you contact your vet for to have FiFi get a check up and get some professional advise. I'm not so sure internet advice is the best way to go here. If it were my dog I would be concerned. I hope everything is ok with her.

When I try to feed her the same thing for three days in a row, she does not like it by the third day.

She does not look bad at all, because she wants to play but I have to care for her so she does not hurt her pups.

Do you guys think it might be because she is almost due???
I'm not sure if I understand you..do you mean you have experience with feeding and dogs? I was meaning because your dog got pregnant is why I would be concerned. Do you know when she got prenant, in order to figure our when the pups are due?

It is normal for pregnant dogs to go thru bouts of not wanting to eat- But I would do whatever you can to get something in her every day- those puppies will need all the neutrients they can get-
Who is the father?

So Dec 2, so she has a good 2 weeks to go. I just went through this with during Sophie's pregnancy. I think morning sickness varies with each bitch. As does their pregnancy.

She was super finicky & I tried everything. We have 5 brands of dog food & she turned her nose at every single one. Tripe. Canned foods. Turkey. Wouldn't touch cottage cheese or eggs. Seemed like it took forever for her to get her appetite back and she still wasn't eating as much as I expected her to be eating but I guess thats expected when there were 7 puppies taking up all the room in her stomach.

Try smaller meals and spacing them out. Maybe hand feeding? Mine's a diva and would only eat off the blanket or hand fed.

If she bred on Dec 2nd, she shouldn't be due until around the 3rd of Feb. If she is in labor now, I would get her to the vet asap- the puppies are way too early to be born now and survive. Keep us updated on her!
