Hi all
My Ginee has phantom pregnancies when she is in season and so I booked her to be spayed 2 weeks ago but due to my cars exhaust going I had to cancel as it was going to cost me £108.....have since found out, as I am on jsa, I can have it done for £30 with dogs trust .......... any way... 3 days ago Ginee started acting like she’s having another phantom but she isn’t in season and isn’t due until late January early Feb........... is that even possible????????? It’s so distressing for her and for us as we know there isn’t much we can do to help her :( .... the next question is........ should I stick with my plan to have her spayed and will it help with her hormones or, as advised by a friend of mine who breeds poodles, let her have a litter of puppies then have her spayed as she clearly wants to be a mummy.... the problem with that is the cost, the worries and the fear I will want to keep them all lol :) .... last part now.... if I did breed her then what should I breed her with? Her mum was a spaniel and dad a toy poodle... my friend has a miniature poodle stud but not sure how that would work in the breeding order of things.....many thanks for any help

Tracy and Ginee

Hi, sorry to see Ginee is having such problems. Don't mate her, just get her spayed. There is a huge amount of work in having a litter and I don't think the phantom pregnancies are a good enough reason to have a litter from her. You could PM lola24 she is a vet nurse and I seem to remember her advising someone else on phantom pregnany, She will probably have some very good advice for you as in the timing of the spay op now Ginee seems to be having another phantom.

Thankyou Karen! I would definately not have a litter- as Karen said, the cost and the work which goes into a health checked, well brought up litter is immense and ontop of the fact it may not stop the phantoms, really isn't a good reason to do so. I would reccomend spaying her but she does need to be out of her phantom to do so. Make sure she is no longer producing milk before you book her in- try cutting her food back as this will help. If you try this and she does not dry up, you could get galastop from your vet to speed things up. Pop her to your vet for a pre op check to see if they are happy to spay her now. :)


PS- i would spay her asap as if you leave her she may come back into season and then you find yourself in the season-phantom cycle!!

thank you all for yr replies. have taken your advice and booked her in to be spayed. she isnt producing milk this time just crying and walking round with her teddys instead of ripping them apart like she usualy does. i have started taking them off her now in the hopes that she calms down and stops being depressed.
