A dog is pregnant for an average of 63 days. Your female is about 52/53 days in or about 10 days from her whelping. Whelping is the process of giving birth, not the pregnancy, and it refers to carnivores only

A pregnant dog can use Revolution topical for all parasite control. It is not an over the counter product - see your Vet for this. A negative heartworm test is advisable as it controls heartworm as well as external parasites.

Lice? While dog lice are possible, they are not normal if a dog is cared for in a healthy, clean enviroment and is properly nourished. If she does have Lice, she needs to see a Vet ASAP. If her enviroment is not clean and she is malnourished, she and the puppies may not survive.

Pictures of dog parasites...perhaps she has something else?
