How long after a dog has puppies can she get pregnant again??


My dog had puppies 4 weeks ago and it looks like she may be pregnant again already.

I think it's more or less impossible that she is pregnant again so soon after giving birth, is she still lactating? Most bitches will follow a 5-6 month cycle although some will come back on heat after 4 months.
What symptoms does she have that would suggest she's pregnant again?

I'm not really sure if she is still lactating or not. I do know that she is not feeding her pup anymore (she only had 2 and the female passed away at birth).

After she had her pups of course, she lost her "baby" weight and looked the same before her pregnancy. Now she is getting a lot bigger. She looks the same as she was when I noticed she was pregnant the first time.

Is she eating and drinking normally? If she looks bloated I think you're best getting her checked by your vet, does she have any discharge? I'd be worried about possible retained placenta or a uterine infection related to hormonal changes.

She is eating and drinking just fine. No discharge. She is her same self. Running around like normal.

Word fail me...

No, she cannot be pregnant again, she will not ovulate until her next season. However, more importantly it is essential you do not take her out when she has puppies as you risk bringing back illness and infecting the pups, or do you have an entire male dog on the premises?

If the pups are four weeks old, ideally she should still be feeding them, most bitches naturally wean at around 6-8 weeks if allowed unlimited access to their puppies. If she is a small or toy breed (and I am assuming she may be as she had only two pups) it's actually pretty important she feeds her pup for as long as possible.

It would really be best to get her neutered, there are so many unwanted dogs and whelping in very dangerous for a bitch.

There is no male dog here, only strays running around. The father of her first litter is a boxer. She is not a toy breed. She is a Chesapeake Bay retreiver around 60lbs.

Bitches generally come into season (on heat) every 6 months on average)

It less likely shes pregnant again.. could need worming..
get her to the vets to get checked over- if nothing else she needs (and pups) to be checked at 4 weeks and 8 weeksa anyways for health and worming.

Otherwise it could be more a serious problem like placenta left behind or womb infection.. these both are very common after a bitch has given birth. x

Vet will be the only one to tell you whats up
