Breeders' Edge Oxy-Mate Prenatal (63383-V)
I was told that using these vitamins would help bring a bitch into heat. I have one bitch that just turned one, and still had not had her first heat.
Four days after starting these, she came in. I don't know if this is all a coincidence or not, but I don't think so! They look and smell like sausages sold for human consumption. She really likes them, no trying to mix up powders or trying to get her to eat a pill.
We will be purchasing these again.
I will use from now on.
Really impressed. Every female I have supplemented with this product from breeding to birth have shown excellent Uterine tone. Decreases the chances of Uterine Inertia. Not one retained placenta as of yet. I do not use any other supplements on my pregnant dams. Just a good performance brand food from breeding to birth.
I WON'T USE THESE AGAIN
First, I'd like to say that I've been breeding English cocker for twenty years or more and have never given a prenatal vitamin and have never had problems in the past, but this time decided to try the Oxy Mate because they were well reviewed. I only gave about a third of a piece per day, and my bitch did very well throughout her pregnancy, other than being bigger and bulging more than I've ever seen any dog. When it came time for the birth the puppies were twice as big as normal and she had an awful time. Only two pups were delivered naturally and she had to have a c section. I live in the middle of nowhere and when she started having trouble I couldn't get a vet to do the operation until the next morning. By that time the five remaining pups were dead. I will say that the two pups she did deliver looked extremely good and have thrived since, but all of the nutrients in this product seem to go straight to the unborn pups making them far too big and hard to deliver. Maybe this product is fine for the larger breed dogs, but in any case I would use extreme caution when giving the OxyMama.
Love Breeders' Edge Products/ Oxy-Mate!
We have been using Preneatal Oxy-Mate from Breeders' Edge with all our bitches from the time they are bred to whelping for the past 3 years! Love it! Works wonderfully! At whelping, we which to Breeders' Edge Oxy-Momma. No need for other supplements! This does the job and well! Wouldn't be without it! Thanks, Revival!
Oxy mate is great!
Love love love this product. Makes a huge difference in whelping pups. Seems to help reduce the prevalence of mastitis too? Mother dog bounces right back after pups, less bleeding during and after whelping. The raspberry and nettle are the ticket with this one. A bit expensive but definitely worth the money
