    My seven weeks post - mated neapolitan female has the area under her belly getting fresher and a bit whiter, does this relate to pregnancy?

    I'm in a rural area in africa, vets here couldnt run an ultrasound on her. Her stomach is slighty bigger, only looks preggy when she eats much, no sign of appetite change still eats too much.

    If she only looks pregnant when she eats a lot, she may not be pregnant at all. At 7 weeks she should be obviously pregnant unless there's only a pup or two or she's going through a false pregnancy.

    A vet check up would be a good idea.

    A pregnant or nursing female will require considerably more food than any other time. She needs a good quality puppy food or a well-balanced raw food diet. If she does not get the right balance of nutrition, she could have problems like eclampsia or the pups could be deformed or unhealthy.
