What do you use? What have you had good results with? I like Source Plus (kelp based micronutrient) but have never given it to a pregnant/nursing dog- but it is supposed to be great for fertility. I'd like to feed my pregnant bitch raw but her Highness turned her nose up at it- she wanted her kibble! I'd really like to give her something extra but I'm not sure what.

I know a few people who swear by goat's milk, too.

I use hokamix for all life stages.  I also give pregnant girls folic acid.

Yes, GOATS MILK has everything anyone ever needed and it is all NATURAL...

I use it to mix mush for weining the pups...gives a very GOOD nutritional  start....

A proper diet, with a change to puppy food about half way through the pregnancy, a multivitamin and perhaps some cottage cheese here and there. Otherwise, nothing special unless a problem arises.....

After breeding, I always put my girls on large breed puppy food.....I also have my dogs on canine red cell, so I don't need to add anything else......This seems to work awesome for us.....

A GOOD...BALANCED Diet and at about 2 to 3 weeks before whelping...Increase diet a little until Whelping...Then feed almost all the female wants...I continue to feed a good...balanced diet and RAW Chicken...This keeps the mother's milk coming...
Have never had a problem with any litters...
I think too many people add too many additives to the female's diet before or as the litter is born...
