Hearts Melt Over Pregnant Chihuahua With Ultrasound: ‘Your Little Peep’
A pregnant dog has wowed 1.8million viewers after a video showing her getting an ultrasound to check on her little ones went viral.
The clip was shared on TikTok by the dog’s owner on Sunday, using the username @pierinamoralest. It shows the Chihuahua, nicknamed Tini, paying close attention to the vet while he does an ultrasound on her to check how her pregnancy is progressing.
In the first few seconds of the clip, the dog is lying comfortably on the table. Tini seeks comfort in her owner’s eyes before turning her attention to the vet and then the screen. The father of her puppies is also in the room, waiting patiently at the table.
According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), a dog’s pregnancy lasts around 62 to 64 days, roughly two months. By the end of the first month, a vet can detect a heartbeat.
The most accurate way to tell if a bitch is pregnant or not is through diagnostic testing. However, signs of pregnancy in dogs to look out for include: “Increase in appetite; weight gain; increase in nipple size; swollen abdomen; fatigue more easily; nesting behavior; more clingy; irritability. Also, some dogs may vomit and have a decrease in get an appetite for a few days in the first few weeks due to hormonal changes,” the AKC suggests.
The video quickly gained popularity across the platform and has so far garnered more than 81,000 likes in less than a week.
