    The female dog will nurse the pup after giving birth to the pup, so the body load for the female dog is also relatively large. Therefore, we must pay more attention to the diet of the post natal female dog, because the calcium in the female dog will be lost with the breast milk when feeding the puppy, so we need to properly supplement the calcium for the female dog, and we need to pay attention to the diet and exercise of the dog.

    In the first few days of feeding, the principle of “eat less and eat more meals” should be adopted, and the digestible food such as broth, porridge and milk should be taken as the main food. Postnatal dogs need not only nutrition, but also milk secretion. Therefore, it is necessary to maintain a high level of response in terms of feeding quantity and nutrient density. Generally, it can be fed 3-4 times a day. In addition to properly increasing refined materials and vegetables, it is also necessary to feed more meat, liver, meat soup, eggs and milk. The dog with insufficient milk can be fed with pig’s hoof and boiled soup or fresh fish soup (crucian carp soup). During the preparation of feed, more than 16.72 kJ of energy should be supplied every day, and the ratio of calcium and phosphorus should be kept between 1.13:1 and 1.2:1.

    Dog’s postpartum activities: Dog’s postpartum activities are best when the weather is warm to avoid windy or rainy weather. Outdoor activities are mainly walking, three times a day, gradually increasing from half an hour to one hour each time. This is good for improving the dog’s health and preventing diseases. For postpartum female dogs, we should properly supplement some calcium, and ensure the nutrition of food. Don’t let them lie there all day. Take them out for a proper walk and exercise, which is good for their health.
