Overfeeding early on in pregnancy can cause your bitch to become fat and may cause problems at whelping. As a general rule, the amount of food you offer your pregnant bitch should be increased by 10-15 per cent per week from the fifth week onwards. If you follow this formula, she will be eating approximately 50 per cent more at the time of whelping than when she was mated.

Your bitch's diet should be complete and balanced, palatable and easily digested. ADVANCE™ Adult Dog Energy, ADVANCE™ Puppy Plus Rehydratable and ADVANCE™ Puppy Plus Growth are designed to meet all these requirements and have an increased energy density as well as being high in quality protein. Because these foods are complete and balanced, all the other essential nutrients will automatically be supplied by feeding to meet her increased energy requirements. The use of vitamin or mineral supplements is unlikely to be beneficial and, in excess, may actually do harm. We recommend you consult your vet if you are considering using supplements.

In late pregnancy the uterus takes up so much space that the bitch's stomach cannot expand as much as normal when she eats. Sometimes bitches with large litters lose their appetite as a result of reduced activity during the last 10 days or so of pregnancy. In these cases, it is sensible to feed several smaller meals per day, rather than one large meal.

Lactation is the biggest test of nutrition for the breeding bitch. She must eat, digest, absorb and use very large amounts of nutrients to produce sufficient milk to support the growth and development of several puppies. She may need to eat up to four times her normal calorie intake at peak lactation (3-4 weeks after whelping). Her requirements for all other nutrients are similarly increased.

ADVANCE™ Puppy Plus Rehydratable, Puppy Growth or Energy are ideal for feeding your lactating bitch since they will supply the energy and high quality protein she needs for milk production. Because of the sheer volume of food that is involved, provide her with four or five small meals per day, or ad libitum. Lactating bitches need a lot of fluid to make milk, so make sure that an ample supply of fresh drinking water is always available.
