Results1.) my pug is pregnant, are there any special foods i need to feed her? what steps should i take to care for her during her pregnancy?
about the 6th week, increase meals, but only add supplements--calcium with vitamin d--if she is a finicky eater and only if reccomended by vet. Store bought food should have 1600 digestible calories per pound of food and at least 21 percent protein--puppy food has the extra supplements, but not the needed energy builder *snorT* Some people reccommend a cooked egg for breakfast, some cottage cheese for lunch, and some raw chicken or beef for dinner along with the normal food. The important part is to increase food intake (lots of small meals throughout day) around the 6th week by 25-50%....if your pug doesn't want to eat, try moistoning the food. Do not withhold food; increasing the number of feedings per day is helpful in allowing her to eat enough for her needs and those of the puppies. Make sure you have your pug dewormed (the worms will pass through the placenta (this is one of the cruel ways that mini-pugs are created))*snort* Don't let mom be jumping off couches afetr her third week. Around the 7th week, prepare a place for the birth. *snortg* someplace out of the way. A large container lined with towels will work After the pups are norn, the appetitie will increase even more *schnurf* if youa regiving her supllements or special food, continue it, she needs the same and more nutrients you offered during pregnancy Most important, visit your vet *snort* all pugs are different and any number of complications can arise keep me updated *snort*

2.) Question I dont know but I think my pug is going to have babies is there anyway that you can tell???
she will gain weight around the 5th week. *snort* Her nipples will also get harder and bigger, sometimes leaking milk in the days before birth. *snort* she will be lazier and she may get morning sickness after a couple weeks *schnurf* A vet can do a test after the fourth week; it is inexpensive and a good idea.

Will this affect her puppies or her if we breed her, and how hard is it to give birth. We have bred rabbits, guinea pigs, deer, buffalo and llamas, but the dog thing is a whole differant ball game to me.
As long as the mites are cleared up, then it will not effect the pups or the pug! *snort* the birth is not hard, you just need to pay attention in case she needs help. sometimes pugs have difficulty on their own, but if you've attended over other animals, you will be fine.
