Dorwest Raspberry Leaf Tablets For Dogs And Cats are popular with breeders. Raspberry Leaf has been a part of herbal lore as a birth aid for centuries and is still recommended by veterinary and healthcare professionals today.
This is an especially good choice for queens or bitches where a difficult delivery is anticipated but also recommended for every pregnancy to help ensure an easy delivery.
This veterinary licensed medicine is not just for use in and around pregnancy, it’s also a useful aid in the prevention of pseudo-pregnancy (false pregnancy/phantom pregnancy) in dogs and cats – a condition where milk is produced in the absence of actual pregnancy and which is often persistent after each oestrus (also called heat or season).
How to prevent phantom pregnancy?
However not many dog owners know what signs to look out for when their bitch may be experiencing a phantom pregnancy
Symptoms can range from mild unsettled behavior to more extreme nesting habits such as carrying toys, looking for pups, and depression. Physical changes can also occur, including a change in body shape, enlarged teats, and even milk production.
Prevention really is the best answer for a bitch who is prone to phantom pregnancies. In extreme cases where pseudo-pregnancy in dogs occurs at every season, it may be advisable to seek veterinary advice regarding the ultimate spaying of the bitch if she is not going to be bred from.
However, if this is not an option, then try Dorwest Raspberry Leaf Tablets which have been used successfully to help many bitches in this situation.
We find it upsetting to see our bitch being upset and confused by what is happening to her. Effects may include anxiety, confusion and general insecurity that often results in her wanting to cling to us more than usual. The best way to help, apart from reassurance and lots of cuddles, is to give Scullcap & Valerian Tablets. These will help with anxiety and stress, so it will help her to feel more calm and relaxed, and she will be noticeably less fretful and worried by the condition.
We would always recommend giving Evening Primrose Oil Capsules to all bitches after a season as it helps to restore hormonal balance and also avoid that ‘moody’ phase that many bitches suffer from!
