Question:

: How many days will she carry them before delivering her puppies? She is a toy poodle.This will be her first litter.


Response:

Hi Joanie,

Gestation for all dogs, no matter what breed is 59-66 days with the average being 63 days.

I strongly suggest you contact your vet and find out the requirements to keep your bitch in good health during her pregnancy. Also discuss the possibility of a caesarean section delivery, which is fairly common in toy breeds due to their anatomical makeup.

It's important that you start reading about canine reproduction and what happens during pregnancy and delivery.

I am providing a link to our recommended reading. There you will find 2 books that you should have and should read so you can help your girl have a safe delivery and healthy pups.

Regards,
Marie
