How soon can you tell if a dog is pregnant?
An ultrasound or hormone test can confirm a pregnancy as soon as three weeks into the pregnancy.
If you go in later, your vet can feel your dog's belly to confirm a pregnancy between days 28 to 35.

When a woman is pregnant, the hormones in her body are likely to alter her scent in some way.
So, can dogs sense pregnancy? Because of their keen sense of smell, it's believed by many that a dog can detect a change in a woman even before she does — but it's mostly conjecture.
How to Tell if It's a Pitbull Breed
- Look at the size and ratios of the dog. Pitt bulls are two and one-half feet tall at the shoulder or shorter.
- Look at the dog's coat. The color is irrelevant.
- Examine the dog's head and neck. A pit bull's head is extremely wide from ear to ear, across the brow and from cheek to cheek.
The fact is, how long after pregnancy a dog has her next period, or goes into estrus or heat, varies widely.
Most female dogs experience a first heat cycle at the age of 6 months.
Unless spayed or pregnant, they'll go into heat every six months for the rest of their lives.
