Pregnant and not Eating!!!
Hi all, just want some other Breeders opinions to see if any of you have the
problem have with Anmaco Black Pearl (Maisey) 2.5 yrs old due her second litter end of January 09. She is about 4 weeks pregnant and just not eating! Ive tried with chicken, she pics a little then leaves it, scrap food (spagheti bolognese she usually loves it) and again just picked at eat. Im just wondering if its because she is pregnant. The vet said she is fine, but its so
worrying that she is not eating hardly anything. Im sure, and I hope, that she starts to eat when she is at least 6 weeks old. What do you think?

It is not unusual for some mommas to lose their appetite after being bred. Was she a picky eater before you bred her? I always just keep mine on their standard diet until they have their puppies. I feed mine a high quality dry food, Canidae, plus I add a little canned Pedigree Chopped chicken canned food to the dry food. Just make sure she is eating a good quality food. Mine usually have their appetites pick up the last half of the pregnancy. Best of luck with the whelping.
