I have a question regarding my pregnant Border Collie's decreased appetite, in the third trimester.

My two & a half year old maiden Border Collie is approx. 56 days pregnant. She has had less than her normal appetite for the last two weeks, & shows no increase at all in eating, no matter is fed. I am very concerned about this, while her pups (7), should be gaining weight, & her appetite should be increasing, during this time, rather than decreasing. I have been unable to find anything at all related to this issue.(Her vet is unconcerned, & stated, "the pups are about as big as they're going to get anyway", a week ago). I tried to ask "alexadry", unable to post.

    I've only stayed with this vet because his is office is only a block away, (for speed with whelping problems), but his "common sense" has seemed really "off" re: pregnancy. (She was injured, last yr., & gained 15 lbs, but w/PG, still doesn't fly)
