Feeding progesterone to Doggy or Older Bitches to stop them from reabsorbing their whelps.
Start Tablets 10 days after last mating. 10 mg/ml
¼ tablet for 4 days, ½ tablet for 4 days, ¾ tablet for 4 days
I tablet each day thereafter, If at 53 days the bitch is very big, increase the dose by ½ a tablet, feed tablets until she starts to whelp.
The disadvantage of feeding Progesterone is that the bitch will have Uterine Inertia and will need a Caesarean.
Only use this method if you have a caring Vet who is an excellent surgeon and willing to be on call out of normal hours if required.
To be given thrice weekly
1 Zinc tablet, 1 Folic acid, 1 Multi Vitamin, 1 Egg
At about 7 weeks split her meal in two, half morning and evening, do not over feed, a fat bitch can have complications.
If your bitch normally drinks a lot of water she may have the Kidney problem Nephritis, therefore I would not recommend giving her Progesterone, the excess protein together with the waste from the whelps can cause kidney failure.
