Can you use a pregnancy test on a dog?

Yes. The blood test detects pregnancy in the the pregnant dog by measuring levels of a hormone called relaxin. This hormone is produced by the developing placenta following implantation of the embryo, and can be detected in the blood in most pregnant females as early as 22-27 days post-breeding.

Dog pregnancy can be difficult to detect. Consider using a dog pregnancy test, learning the symptoms, and visiting your veterinarian.

A new easy way of detecting dog pregnancy at home

At Bellylabs, we want to simplify your life and the life of your dog. Our new home pregnancy test for dogs is the result of many years of research, development, and collaboration with top authorities, veterinarians, and breeders. It is a brand-new method for identifying dog pregnancies in the convenience of your own home.

No need for professional knowledge, no needles involved. The box contains everything you’ll need to conduct the test. A tiny drop of blood, easily obtained with a quick snap, is used for the test. Therefore it is easy, stress free and barely noticeable. You only need to bother your dog for one minute.

After 28 days have passed since ovulation, we advise testing for the highest degree of accuracy. Although there is no harm in testing sooner rather than later, there may not yet be enough hormone to make a reliable detection. Although there are virtually no false positives.

*The Bellylabs pregnancy test was contrasted with an ultrasound-verified medical diagnosis. The study involved 70 performed tests. **If gestation days are calculated based on mating and the time of ovulation is unknown, they may differ. Before mating, ovulation can be precisely determined using a progesterone test.

3 Early Indicators of Dog Pregnancy

  • Inappetence (decreased appetite)
  • Noticeable decrease in activity
  • Enlarged nipples
  • What Are the Symptoms of Pregnancy in Dogs?

    Your dog will begin to display some signs of pregnancy fairly soon. Although I wouldn’t advise relying solely on these signs to determine whether your dog is pregnant, you can use them to decide whether you should consult your veterinarian and have her tested.

    These symptoms can include:

  • Decreased activity
  • Changes in appetite
  • Vomiting
  • Mammary gland enlargement
  • Discoloration of the nipples
  • Weight gain
  • Enlarged abdomen
  • Nesting behaviors
  • Increase in affection
  • Irritability
  • Depending on the dog and the stage of pregnancy, these symptoms can change. For instance, a pregnant dog is likely to vomit or refuse food at first. But as the pregnancy progresses, her appetite could significantly increase.

    False pregnancy, aka pseudopregnancy, is very common in unspayed female dogs. Most dogs will exhibit some symptoms of a false pregnancy during their heat cycle. It usually occurs four to nine weeks after the end of oestrus.

    False pregnancy refers to when a dog displays pregnancy symptoms but isn’t actually pregnant. These can include:

  • Mammary gland enlargement
  • Milk production
  • Lethargy
  • Vomiting
  • Fluid retention
  • Nesting behaviors
  • You shouldn’t rely solely on the symptoms mentioned above as signs of pregnancy because female dogs frequently experience pseudopregnancies. Instead, consult your veterinarian and have them conduct a more accurate test if your dog is displaying these symptoms and you suspect she is pregnant.
