Feeding the Pregnant Dog

Additional Resource

Answers to common questions including: I am getting ready to breed my female dog. What role does nutrition play? Are there nutritional issues that cause problems leading up to pregnancy? How should I feed my dog during her pregnancy? I have heard that lactation is even more energy intense than pregnancy. Is this true? Do I need to change how I feed my dog as she weans her puppies?
