Pomeranian Perpetual Whelping Chart and Pomeranian Whelping Table

Pomeranian puppies are usually born 61 days after conception. It takes 48 hours for the egg to ripen before the egg will allow penetration of sperm. If your Pomeranian female ovulates on day 11 of her cycle, than conception began on day 13 of her cycle.

Not knowing exactly when ovulation occurs, this chart is as close as you can get to predicting her due date. There are numerous elements which may determine the due date including the fact that Pomeranian mothers carrying large litters may whelp earlier as well as the fact that first time mothers may whelp later than expected.

Temperature Analysis to Predict Pomeranian Whelping Date

Taking your dogs temperature as well as documenting this may well tell you, within 24 hours, when Pomeranian whelping will probably commence. On numerous occasions, 12-24 hours prior to the decline it may rise higher then it has been in weeks. The following chart can assist you with temperature recording.

98.2                  
98.0                  

1. Commence taking your dog’s temperature at your estimated day 57 of her cycle.

2. Record your Pomeranian Mummy to be’s temperature in the AM and PM ( ideal time is when the dog is relaxed or even has been asleep – NOT following a run in the yard).

You may possibly observe a large increase in temperature just prior to it dropping. Any temperature recorded lower than 99.2 indicates labor may commence within 24 hours. A Pomeranian dog’s regular temperature fluctuates between 101-102 degrees.

In the final trimester of pregnancy the pregnant Pomeranian female may have a temperature about 100. This is attributed to hormone levels. Dogs can certainly safely whelp their litters 58 days following conception. After 58 days the pups’ lungs are completely developed and the puppies can easily breath by themselves.
