Breeders' Edge Oral Cal Plus (63210-V)
This product not only helps during whelping, but also after the pups are nursing. We had a bitch who began to growl at her pups on day 2. We researched and found that bitches can have low calcium due to the demand of lactating and need additional calcium. I had been using Sure Grow Calcium after she whelped, but switched to Oral Cal because it is quickly assimilated. She was fine within 24 hours.
Love the product! The last litter or bitch had to have a C-section because she didn't contract right. This time I gave her the Oral Cal right at the beginning of her labor and set the timer every 20 minutes, repeated dosage until last pup was born. She had 5 puppies in 1.5hr. Greatly recommend, never gonna have a delivery without it again.
A lifesaver during whelping!
When whelping a large litter of puppies, sometimes the mother can get weak and tired and the contractions may not always be strong enough. I have assisted in whelping several litters and we always keep 2-3 tubes on hand for large deliveries. The moms like the taste and it is much safer for mom and puppies than oxytocin.
A must for bitches after whelping
Every owner of a bitch whelping puppies should not be without this product. Its the best way to keep their calcium levels up after the puppies are born.
Our Dogo Argentino girl AVA, gave bith to 10 puppies on Dec 05. The labor started at 5am and the last puppy was born at 9am. The longest interval between puppies was 30 min. and the shortest one was 8 min. Ava loved the taste of this calcium supplement. She's doing great feeding her puppies and recovering well!
