Do Moms Need Vitamins?

Revival is often asked about giving supplements to moms. Most use meat, oils or liver and want to know if that is okay. Why not vitamins?

MANAGING MOM FOR HER GENETIC POTENTIAL

Giving vitamins to mom between litters helps her have consistently fertile heats. Healthy moms should have a reliable cycle with an interval no longer than 6 to 7 months. Quality food and vitamins will help mom to have healthy, predictable and fertile cycles. Doc Roy's® Daily Care, made in Nebraska, will ensure mom has all the building blocks in place to re-breed effectively.

PRENATAL VITAMINS - PLEASE DO!

Babies need vitamins and minerals for red blood cell, muscle and bone growth. All must come from mom’s body! During pregnancy, mom’s metabolism and RBCs increase 25% to help babies grow. If mom doesn't have enough to give, the babies are born anemic and weak. Giving mom USA-made Breeders' Edge® Oxy Mate Prenatal vitamins will ensure healthier moms and babies born fighting to live.

WHAT ABOUT NURSING?

Nursing can require up to a 100% increase in calories and nutrition, including vitamins. Feeding puppy or kitten food will keep calories up and giving Breeders' Edge® Oxy Momma vitamin when moms are nursing will support milk production and recovery.

Queens are very texture sensitive. Remove the casing when starting queens on Oxy Mate Prenatal or Oxy Momma to improve acceptance. Once queens know what the vitamins are, the casing can be left on.

WHY VITAMINS?

Give prenatal vitamins; your mom took them! Dog and cat moms deserve the same help.
