    Hi all, I do not have a labrador I have a cockapoo, but the advice I need is general - How many of you out there have the correct definitive answer to this question.

    I have taken my bitch to the vet and also have involved a qualified, animal behaviourist - The question is -

    Do you remove phantom puppies, and discourage nesting behaviour in phantom pregnancies?

    Yes, remove toys, reduce food and increase exercise (a lot) and she should be ok after a couple of days.
    Then get her spayed next month.

    My last dog went into a state of chronic phantom pregnancy after being spayed. We'd waited 4 months from her previous season which I believe is the recommended interval. She was older though (13), and I think her hormones were already deranged as she only started having false pregnancies late in life.
