My dog is in heat...I have a 8-9 month old male that hasn't been fixed yet...well, they mated. What are the chances that she got pregnant from this? I believe this is the first time for both.

I cant believe this has happened. Just got both dogs and haven't had a change to fix either one yet.
my fur babies: Pitbulls - Rizzo and Gracie both 1 years old. The best dogs ever!! expecting 1st 'real' baby in July 2011
Bernadine Cruz, DVM responded:
Just like every young lover fears, not every romantic encounter will result in pregnancy, too many do. Since you were planning on neutering them both, I would suggest getting them to your veterinarian NOW and having them both tended to. I am sure they are marvelous pets and sadly there are too many fabulous dogs and cats that can't find loving homes. Have them neutered this week.
