Morning after pill for dogs?

Species: Dog
Breed: German Shepherd
Age: 2-5 years
Is there a "morning after pill" for dogs?




Online vet, Dr. Marie

Dr. Marie replied:

There is a medical way to terminate a dog's pregnancy but we don't do it often. A vet can give hormone injections which will terminate the pregnancy. However, these injections have a high chance of causing a pyometra which is a serious life threatening infection in the uterus. It is also very painful for the dog.

The other alternative is to have your vet spay your dog as soon as possible.

If your dog has bred with another dog then there is a VERY high chance that she is pregnant.
