Q. My dog is part terrier ans part sitzu. 2 yrs old. Can she still get prégnant even dog is spayed? She has had sudden weight gain?

A. Absolutely not, if she is spayed she cannot get pregnant.

It is common for spay dogs to start gaining weight, you are going to need to put he on a strict diet of “light” dry food and be patient unroll she starts losing weight.
