Q. My dog is in a false pregnancy can or will she ever get pregnant

A. This should not impact her ability to have a litter in the future. Treatment is rarely required as the symptoms typically resolve after a few weeks. See your vet if they persist. If you don't plan on breeding her in the future, having her spayed will prevent false pregnancies.
