Popular with breeders, Raspberry Leaf has been a part of herbal lore as a birth aid for centuries and is still recommended by veterinary and healthcare professionals today. This is an especially good choice for queens or bitches where a difficult delivery is anticipated but also recommended for every pregnancy to help ensure an easy delivery.
This veterinary licensed medicine is not just for use in and around pregnancy, it’s also a useful aid in the prevention of pseudo-pregnancy (false pregnancy/phantom pregnancy) in dogs and cats – a condition where milk is produced in the absence of actual pregnancy and which is often persistent after each oestrus (also called heat or season).
