We generally recommend taking bitches who are being bred off the product. The product will not cause problems for bitches in whelp or the babies, this recommendation is really more for a sense of economy. With the hormones from pregnancy, lactating, and the physical stress of whelping and raising a little of puppies, there’s really not a lot that’s going to keep a bitch’s coat in “prime”; condition. However, once she’s shed her coat after weaning puppies, putting her back on the product will get her growing an optimum coat quickly. We have many customers who have done this with their mom’s and have them back in the ring in record time.
