Raspberry Leaf Tablets

Recommended Posts

Hi All...

Well my lurcher is in the middle of her second season. Her first season she had a bit of a phantom and got a bit of milk in for quite a while afterwards. The vet said it could indicate problems further along the line regarding future seasons due to having a phantom straight off the bat. I was not given anything for her, but told to keep an eye on her and things dried up on their own.

Now this time round Im gonna try the raspberry leaf extract tablets, anyone got any reliable info on when to start them, dosage ect.

Raspberry leaf has been used for a very long time to help women give birth more easily. It is supposed to strengthen the muscles of the uterus.

 

But for drying up milk in a bitch I would use this: Urtica Urens 3C . Be very careful NOT to buy the 30C as this will increase milk production!!!!!

 

Get it here: http://www.dorwest.com/products/URN3C/urtica-urens-3c-three-100-pillules

 

It definitely works, as does the higher potency for bitches who are struggling to make enough milk for pups. But obviously, if a bitch hasn't enough milk you should first make sure the diet is adequate: lots of protein.

yes. used it lots for whelping bitches, helps a lot. [herbal, not homeopathic as skycat..big difference]...urtica is from nettles a good tonic used mainly to help reg milk flow ,. sage is used to dry up milk

but you are asking to regulate cycle, the herb Vitex agnus castus is best for that

Not so much as drying her up, more nipping a phantom in the bud. I read given early enough will help with preventing a phantom. I`m sure I read 4 to 6 tablets at the very start of her season daily and carrying on 4 weeks or so after. But I thought 4 to 6 tablets a day was a bit excessive?

Bob . . . I had the same trouble with my youngest bitch here re: phantom pregnancys. The first two seasons that she had were phantoms, second one worst than the first..... bagging up in her back teats even producing a little milk.

So before her 3rd season tried some of the raspberry leaf tablets from Dorwest herbs, and I believe it helped her no end, and as I write this she is in season again.

What I do with my bitch is give her 4 tablets daily mixed in with her food as soon as she starts spotting. :thumbs:

Bob . . . It says on the tub that the tablets come in to give them start of season for 12 weeks..... But I've bought a tub containing 200 and will give her 4 a day until they are all used :thumbs:

 

If you try them Bob let us know how you find them ;)
