What is Abortion?

When a dog becomes pregnant by accident, it may be necessary to terminate the pregnancy. This is done after much investigation into the reasons for the pregnancy, the need to end it, and the safest method of proceeding. The method of ending the pregnancy will depend on factors such as the age of the dog and whether the owner hopes to breed her in the future. An owner may decide to end the pregnancy of their dog if the female is too young to carry a pregnancy safely, or if the accidental mating happened between disproportionate partners. Your veterinarian will take steps to ensure that your dog is indeed pregnant before going through with a treatment.

An abortion in a dog canl result due to a termination of the pregnancy by the veterinarian as requested by the owner. The spontaneous event of unplanned abortion is known as a miscarriage. There are numerous reasons why a planned termination of pregnancy may be necessary, such as protection of the health of the mother or accidental mismating of canines.

Symptoms of Abortion in Dogs

Choosing to terminate the pregnancy of a canine is not one that is taken lightly. There are many cases, however, of a dog getting away from the owner while in heat, thus creating a worrisome situation. Chances are the owner is now wondering whether the family pet will now bring puppies into a world full of dogs needing homes. In other cases, a purebred dog may mate with an undesirable partner, or a pet who has not been spayed due to the plans for future breeding becomes pregnant before the owner’s desire. 

When a female dog is in estrous (or commonly known as heat), she is receptive to a male dog’s for about a week but is actually only fertile for 3 to 7 days approximately.

If she becomes pregnant and an abortion takes place, whether spontaneous or planned you will see bleeding for a few days after the event.

Causes of Abortion in Dogs

The termination of a pregnancy may be decided upon for a number of reasons.

  • A purebred female is impregnated in a mismatch
  • The mating dogs may be disproportionate in size
  • The owner does not want to add puppies to the present population
  • The owner feels the dog is too old for a healthy pregnancy
  • The dog is too young (she has become pregnant at her first estrous)

A spontaneous abortion may occur for reasons like nutritional deficiencies, death of the embryo, or bacterial infection.

Diagnosis of Abortion in Dogs

Before a pregnancy is terminated, the veterinarian will want to confirm that your pet is indeed pregnant. You may have witnessed the mating take place but this in no way confirms if conception occurred. A vaginal smear can be done to verify the presence of sperm; however, this does not mean that your canine companion has conceived. In order to be sure if your pet is carrying puppies, an ultrasound at 25 days gestation may give evidence to the fact. Some pet owners may want to have the potential pregnancy avoided; this will need to be discussed with the veterinarian.

Treatment of Abortion in Dogs

Your veterinarian can give you the best advice as to which method is safest and most effective for your pet, based on the stage of pregnancy. Ovariohysterectomy is the complete removal of the ovaries and uterus. It is very successful in terminating and preventing pregnancy. This is done early on in a pregnancy. A veterinarian may find it difficult and uncomfortable performing this procedure on a canine in late pregnancy, very understandably so.

There are other methods that can be used to terminate a pregnancy in your dog. Discussion with your veterinarian is absolutely necessary as you make a decision as to what will in the long-term, be the best solution for your dog and for you as the owner.

Prostaglandin injections, given for 4 days, stop the hormone progesterone and are 80% effective in ending a pregnancy by causing the uterus to contract, making the pregnancy nonviable. The fetuses are reabsorbed. Dexamethasone is injected twice daily for 10 days at 30 days gestation; the fetuses are either aborted or reabsorbed. Prolactin antagonists are an oral medication given twice daily at 35 to 40 days gestation, causing the fetuses to be aborted in 3 to 5 days. Side effects like increased thirst and nausea have been noted with these methods.

Recovery of Abortion in Dogs

Some pet owners prefer that their pet remain at the clinic for the entire time of the procedure due to the possible unpleasantness of the abortion procedure and results. As well, some canine owners want to ensure the termination is complete before bringing their pet home. This is a personal decision that you will want to discuss with your veterinarian.

If your pet had an ovariohysterectomy, she will need rest and quiet when she returns home which is usually the day after the surgery. She will have stitches and therefore needs to remain quiet with leash walks only for exercise. Your veterinarian will advise you of the follow up appointment necessary after your pet has been spayed.

I have an 8 month old female puppy who was recently in heat and her father got to her. I am pretty sure she is pregnant. I cannot afford anymore dogs right now and I was always told not to let them get pregnant on their very first heat cycle. What can I do? I am a college student right now and every vet I ask wants $250 or more to fix her. I need help. I think she is in pain, she won't let anyone but me barely touch her let alone touch her belly.

Unless there is a low cost spay/neuter clinic near you, there isn't anything else to do but have her spayed at one of the veterinarians near your house. If you don't have her spayed, and she is with an intact male, she will continue to get pregnant, and you will continue to have puppies. You can ask one of the veterinarians in your area if there is a low cost spay/neuter clinic available.

False pregnancy vs. Actual pregnancy

My dog was in heat about 3-4 Weeks ago, I was catious about letting her out...but there was one time she was unsupervised for about 5 mins and I believe she might be pregnant. It will going in two weeks since she ended her cycle? But her nipple have became enlarged..no other symptoms. I have Google how to tell ig your dog is pregnant and false pregnancy came up. Any way, if she is pregnant, she will need an abortion because all the dogs on my street are all 5-10x bigger than her (I thought it would have been impossible for them to get her).

You would be surprised about the sizing match up of some dogs when mating. It is probable that it is a false pregnancy as enlarged nipples usually occur later in actual pregnancies at around five to six weeks; but it would be best to have your Veterinarian check her over. Not all Veterinarian perform abortions at later stages of pregnancy so it would be best to speak with them soon. If it is a false pregnancy, it would resolve itself typically without treatment. Regards Dr Callum Turner DVM

My german shepard is almost 8 months old I didn't know when she was going to start her period and was unsupervised with my chihuahua terrior mixed. And when I came home from work I didn't notice anything and then when I was getting ready for bed I notice that she looked swollen and found a little bit of blood on her blanket and on the tile. And I am super scaried that she could be pregnant because I don't want it to.mess her up since this is her first heat. And I don't know what to do.

Thank you for your email. You are justified in being concerned. She is very young to have come into heat! If she isn't fully vaccinated, that is very important to have done as soon as possible. She is much more in danger of being affected by Parvo virus being in contact with other dogs than by going to the veterinary clinic for vaccines, and your veterinarian will be able to examine her, make sure that she is healthy, and recommend anything that she might need. You can tell if she is actually pregnant with an ultrasound, or x-rays at later stages. I hope that everything goes well for Nix!

It is quite possible that Annie is going through a false pregnancy; especially if she has had a chemical abortion. Most cases of false pregnancy will resolve themselves spontaneously without intervention; it would be best to keep an eye on her to see if there is any discharge from the vulva or a fever as this may indicate an infection or other condition. If you see not improvement over the next week, visit your Veterinarian for a quick check over to be on the safe side. Regards Dr Callum Turner DVM

Thank you for your email. The fact that she is eating and drinking normally is good, and her incision site healing well is great! While I can't examine her, she sounds normal other than her behavior. She may be anxious from the procedure, the medications, and the stress on her body. If she doesn't begin to calm down and act normally in the next few days, it would be a good idea to have her examined by her veterinarian and make sure that she is okay. I hope that everything goes well for her.

I got a 2 year old 31 lb female American cattle dog as a foster from an owner surrender in 2/25/18. She went to our vet 3/1/18 where she got a DHPPL and nasal Bordatella vaccination. On 3/14/18 it was discovered that she is pregnant. An ultrasound was done where at least 4 beating hearts were doscovered. We are now concerned about the effects of the vaccinations on the fetus and our vet has suggesting aborting the puppies due the the exposure to the vaccinations. What is your opinion of this. I would also like to know what are the risks and cons of the vet performing a spay abortion concerning how it will effect mom short and long term. Thanks!

Dr. Callum Turner, DVM
Dr. Callum Turner, DVM
2937 Recommendations
The American Animal Hospital Association’s guidelines on vaccination of pregnant dogs is as follows: “Vaccination with MLV (attenuated) and/or killed (inactivated) vaccines during pregnancy should be avoided, if possible, to avoid potential injury to the fetus. There are exceptions, especially in shelters, where vaccination would be advised if the pregnant dog has never been vaccinated and there is risk of exposure to a highly pathogenic virus (e.g., CDV, CPV-2).” Due to the possible risk of vaccinating an immunocompromised mother or infecting unborn pups due to transplacental infection abortion may be recommended by your Veterinarian; the stage of pregnancy is important, however pregnant dogs are spayed on a regular basis especially in shelters. The side effects of spaying a pregnant dog are usually related to the change in hormones and the effects that has on the dog.

Has Symptoms

Sulking
Depression

My nearly 3 year old Lucy was in heat when she escaped and was bred. I found her attached to the male dog and they were connected for about 30 minutes. I immediately scheduled an appointment to have her spayed and the vet said it would be best to wait until 3 weeks after she was bred.

She had the procedure and the incision is healing nicely, but today she seems almost depressed. If I want her to come or even just stand up, she goes limp and will not come when called or when the leash is attached. She is eating just fine - possibly a bit less than usual, but I’ve been treating her more than usual lately trying to keep her spirits up.

Could this depression or sadness be caused by the hormones that she was experiencing and now is not? How can I tell the difference between her hormones rebalancing and a general lethargy (which my vet warned me that if I saw, I should bring her in for a checkup.)

My vet is not open today and will not open until Monday. Are there any precautions I should take to make sure she’s okay? If this is just a hormone imbalance, is there anything I can do to help her feel better? (Besides the obvious pampering and petting she’s already swimming in! 😅)

Thanks for any help. I love my pup and want her to be happy and healthy.

Dr. Callum Turner, DVM
Dr. Callum Turner, DVM
2937 Recommendations
Hormonal changes can causes lethargy in dogs especially after spaying, this most likely is down to this if the spay was done in the last week or so; general lethargy is also a concern but for the meantime you should monitor Lucy and make note of any other symptoms which present. If she is still lethargic by Monday you should visit your Veterinarian to be on the safe side especially if it has been more than a week or two since the spaying. Regards Dr Callum Turner DVM

I brought my 2 year old mix breed about the size of a schnauzer to the vet today to get spayed and knew the other family dog that's a lab/golden retriever mix had tried while she was in heat, but apparently someone else let her out while I was gone and didn't watch her. Well I go to pick her up from the vet and apparently she had 7 puppies, but the vet did not know until after they had snipped her. I'm glad it turned out like it did because they would have hurt or killed her, but I was wondering if it's likely she will be depressed and act differently.

There is a possibility that there may be some behavioural changes in the short term but there should be no problems in the long term. The pregnancy was stopped and all hormone producing elements of the genital tract relating to pregnancy (ovary - corpus luteum etc,,,) would have been removed with the spay. Keep an eye on her and if you notice anything unusual visit your Veterinarian. Regards Dr Callum Turner DVM

Different Veterinarians have different views on this issue. There are various medications which may be used to abort an unwanted pregnancy in a dog, estradiol cypionate is used quite often for this. A discussion should be made with your Veterinarian regarding Meekah’s suitability; your Veterinarian may just perform a spay and take care in one fell swoop if caught early enough but would be at their discretion.

Thank you for your email. Dogs can have false pregnancies, where they hormonally go through a pregnancy, but they aren't pregnant. She may be having a false pregnancy, or she may have lost her puppies early. They typically go through a heat cycle every 6-12 months, but hers may be unusual if she has hormonal differences. It would be a good idea to have her examined by your veterinarian to make sure that she is okay.

My Dog Isabella and her son, who is an American Eskimo, Miniature Pinscher mix sleep in the same crate. This is because he has bad anxiety and can't sleep without her without howling all night. During her heat cycle I kept them separate as much as possible, even moving her to another crate, however when they went outside once together they managed to hook up on February 13th. This was the only time but today she was showing signs of an enlarged stomach and seems pregnant by some behaviors I've noticed in past pregnancies.

Dr. Callum Turner, DVM
Dr. Callum Turner, DVM
2937 Recommendations

It would be best in some respects to terminate the pregnancy as interbreeding can magnify certain negative traits if the mother and son are carriers of the genes. If you are not wanting to breed anymore, some Veterinarians may spay her and everything is resolved in one motion; this is down to Veterinarian’s preference. After effects may be depression, continuing mentally with the pregnancy and other similar behaviours; but ultimately no long lasting effects. Again, an abortion may be carried out with injections, but at the Veterinarian’s preference. Regards Dr Callum Turner DVM

It is possible that Molly is pregnant or is having a false pregnancy; either way it would be best to speak with your Veterinarian to confirm whether she is pregnant and to see whether they will abort or not (some Veterinarians will others won't). Just because a brother and sister have mated, doesn’t mean that the puppies will be deformed; it just means that inherited traits that both siblings have in their DNA can present in the offspring. If you aren’t planning on breeding her, spaying would be best to prevent unwanted pregnancies, false pregnancies, pyometra, mammary tumours etc… Regards Dr Callum Turner DVM

Dr. Callum Turner, DVM
Dr. Callum Turner, DVM
2937 Recommendations

I would suggest going to term with the pregnancy as it seems six weeks have passed and a decision to abort would have to be at the Veterinarian’s discretion which you visit; despite what is written online, the pregnancy won’t affect her pedigree. It is also possible that Chewy is having a phantom pregnancy which can occur four to eight weeks after being on heat. In either situation, a visit to your Veterinarian (or another one) is best to discuss the options available; some Veterinarians won’t abort pups without spaying the mother.

Thank you for your email. That is unlikely. The tissue may have been discharge associated with the pregnancy or the puppy. It would be a good idea to keep in contact with your veterinarian, as the puppy should be coming within the next 15 days if it showed up on the x-ray. If she has any problems delivering, it will be good to have your veterinarian involved.

Most Veterinarians would spay during early pregnancy, and some would even spay up to term. Obviously the females need to be healthy enough (they should be being only ten months) and that is about it. Speak with your Veterinarian’s Office about booking an appointment before the pregnancy progresses more. Other reasons for spaying include prevention of future pregnancies and the prevention of conditions like pyometra and tumours which may occur later in life in intact females.
