Natural support for your bitch or queen, whether pregnant or not

SKU: N/A Categories: , Tag: Product ID: 8869


Dorwest Herbs Raspberry Leaf Tablets For Dogs And Cats is a popular birth-aid with breeders.
The use of raspberry leaf in pregnancy is documented as far back as the 6th century and is still recommended by health and veterinary professionals today. When used in pregnancy, raspberry leaf helps to tone and maintain the strength of the muscles of the uterus in preparation for birth. It is also known for its hormone balancing properties, and so these tablets are helpful for supporting bitches who experience phantom pregnancies.

How to use Raspberry Leaf Tablets

To help prepare your bitch for whelping, we recommend to start using our Raspberry Leaf Tablets three weeks after mating and continuing until one week after whelping.

To help support bitches who experience phantom pregnancies, use from the first sign of her coming into season and continue for 12 weeks (which is when she would have whelped had she been mated). Ensure you continue in this way for every season, unless she is mated. While we recommend using Raspberry Leaf Tablets from the first day of your dog’s season, they can still be useful if your bitch is already showing signs of a phantom pregnancy.

How does raspberry leaf work?

Dorwest Herbs Raspberry Leaf Tablets For Dogs And Cats use high quality raspberry leaf extract, packed full of natural compounds to help prepare your bitch for whelping, and support those who experience phantom pregnancies.

Raspberry leaf contains:

  • Fragarine – tones the uterus
  • Iron – important for normal red blood cells
  • Tannins – helps normal clotting and tones and maintains strength of the reproductive organs
  • Vitamins A, C, B, E, calcium and magnesium – all important for pregnancy, magnesium particularly helps to maintain strength of the uterine muscles. Vitamin B helps to regulate hormones

What is a pseudo- or phantom pregnancy?

False, pseudo or phantom pregnancies can affect un-neutered bitches due to individual response to normal hormonal changes associated with her season. They usually start after the first or second season and unfortunately, if your dog has a tendency to these, she`s likely to suffer season after season with symptoms of increasing severity. These symptoms range from mild unsettled behaviour 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.

Our Raspberry Leaf Tablets can help your dog cope better with hormonal changes by helping maintain a normal balance.

Directions – Raspberry Leaf Tablets administration:

During pregnancy: 1 tablet per 10kgs bodyweight daily from third week of gestation until one week after whelping or kittening. For support during phantom pregnancy: 2 tablets per 10kgs bodyweight daily from the start of the season for 12 weeks.
