Feeding nursing bitch

Recommended Posts

I have a toy breed girl due to have pups shortly. I have been feeding her mainly black hawk puppy biscuits, as vet recommended, with mince every other day. Also a raw chicken wing probably once a fortnight.


She got milk fever with her last litter when pups were about a week old. Vet gave me calcium syrup to give 5ml daily. This prevented further episodes.


Can anyone recommend what else I could add to her diet now, or following whelping to help prevent another case of milk fever please?

after she has had the pups, and only after, start on the calcium again. You could also give her chicken wings or necks every day after the pups are born. And watch her like a hawk.
