Hey good morning.
Just wandering if anyone has notice that lots of female has gotten into their heat with no success. So far I have not have that problem. May be food or supplementation may change things.
When I said some I mean about 8 females from 3 different breeder out of 9 or 10. Me and another breeder who feed the same have been excellent so far. Just looking for opinions or any thing you have heard of.thanks in advance.

The breeding groups on fb are stating that it is usually a food issue. Anything with peas or legumes, and other ingredients, are causing fertility issues. I haven't heard of anyone feeding prey model raw having an issue. But I switched my female off of the formula of Victor that she was on when she missed 2 breedings, and then she took.

Actually those people I referred were feeding victor. I had my females on Proplan sport 30-20 and is working out good for me . My friend feeds the same and is ok too.

certain foods can couse this, in raw food, too much chicken karkass can cause this, and various medical possabilities, might want to test for herpes

In addition to the above:

Could be flea preventatives. Bravecto is a problem for fertility and birth defects.
I was advised to stick with FrontlinePlus. Don't know about any of the others. Don't know about heartworm preventatives, either.

Maybe stress. Besides all of the usual sources of stress, with all the stuff going on with COVID19, the bitch could be picking up on owner/breeder stress or changes in routines, etc. Sometimes, bitches won't conceive in a strange place, especially without a familiar person there, so if she was shipped instead of taken to the stud, maybe no puppies. Use of frozen semen may or may not be an issue, depending on who one talks to. With COVID19, I suspect there's more of this going on, especially if international border crossing is involved.

Might be chemicals in shampoos, etc. used on dogs, to clean the home or kennel, sanitizers, or yard and garden pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers.

And finally, perhaps if there are any changes in vaccine formulations.

Of course, it could be the males' fault LOL
