Pet Reproduction

Pet reproduction has turned out to be problematic in many cases. Pets such as dogs and cats, for example, tend to become overpopulated so that there aren't enough homes for all of the available pets. That is a good reason to spay and neuter pets and also to adopt from shelters and rescue organizations.

The gestation period for dogs is 63 days. An average litter consists of six puppies. The gestation period for cats is 63-65 days. An average cat has 1-8 kittens per litter. The gestation period for hamsters is 20 days. Up to 18 young are born once. The gestation period for guinea pigs is between 59 and 72 days. 1-6 piglets are born once. The incubation period for budgie eggs is 18 days. Budgies lay between 3 and 6 eggs in a clutch.
