I took my Doberman, Ruby, to the vet today because she had a mucusy discharge coming from her vagina. He told me she was going through a false pregnancy. (She's never been around male dogs.) Has anyone else ever experienced this? Is it like when a girl convinces herself she's pregnant and has the symptoms? Ruby's even gained 5lbs!

Hi RubyRed...any dog that goes through a heat but does not get bred will go through some form of false pregnancy. In many dogs it is totally un-noticeable to us, but in some dogs they can get any of the symptoms of pregnancy including mammary enlargement and possibly even contracting as if in labour! It is not usually harmful at all though.
