Unwanted mating (misalliance)

Misalliance / mesalliance is the term used when a female dog is in season and has a mating that is not wanted by the owner. Dogs have high fertility and after a successful mating 8 out of 10 bitches will get pregnant. In the world there are already many unwanted dogs and it is a big commitment to have a litter of puppies that you did not plan, and even harder to find good homes for them all. If your bitch has been mated unintentionally contact your veterinarian as soon as possible as they may be able to prevent her having puppies.
