Our question this week was:

My poodle is pregnant and I was wondering if you could tell me the type of environment she needs and if I need to give her any help during the labor and if I need to switch her food or anything.

Answer

If your poodle is pregnant, you need to make sure she is eating a good quality diet for pregnant dogs. As she come close to her due date, you should watch her closely and make a whelping box. You should only provide help during labor if she needs it. I'd recommend that you have her examined by your veterinarian prior to delivery to help determine if she has any additional needs and how many puppies she has.
