Whatever the reason, there are a few things to keep in mind if you're considering aborting an unwanted pregnancy in your dog.

First, it's important to make sure that your dog is actually pregnant before you go through with an abortion. This can be done by taking your dog to the vet for a blood test or ultrasound. Once you're sure that your dog is pregnant, you need to decide what type of abortion you want.
