I HEARD OF THE IMPORTANCE OF ADDING CALCIUM TO THE DIET OF A LATE-PREGNANCY AND LACTATING BITCH

June 10, 2014

I am planning to breed my female in a year or so and have heard of the importance of adding calcium to the diet of a late-pregnancy and lactating bitch. Will this still be necessary with your supplement or does your specialty formula offer adequate amounts?

Hi Jenny,

I think the formula will provide enough Calcium for pregnancy, but if you have a large litter you may want to just add 35Omgm of oyster shell calcium each day.
