Breeding Soundness

Breeding Soundness

Any bitch showing false pregnancy is prone to have a reoccurrence in the future. There is no reason not to breed this bitch but she may not be a good producer. There seems to be a greater risk of pyometra, a severe infection of the uterus, in any female dog that has had false pregnancies. There's no way of predicting the outcome of any breeding but many bitches that have had a false pregnancy have gone on to give birth to normal, healthy litters. Evidence does not indicate that false pregnancies are an inherited disorder.
