Cafe Noir are 1 week old

Oceana Update

Oceana herself is doing really well. She’s totally relaxed and confident. This is her retirement litter, her fourth litter. She’s well accustomed to the role of being a mom and very comfortable in it. She’s out chasing the ball quite regularly. She’s eating about six to six and a half pounds of raw food a day and she eats a bit of kibble as well. We do not feed our dogs kibble, but Oceana lives in a guardian home. For whatever reason, when Oceana’s with her guardians she prefers kibble. When she comes and stays with us she only wants the raw. So, we just accommodate her. Right now she has the puppies and wants to have both of them, so we let her have whatever she wants to eat.

“The Café Noir litter is now a week old and doing well. Almost all the puppies have doubled their birthweight and Oceana is settling into motherhood quite well.”

She also enjoys lots of fresh bones, liver treats, and other treats. We supplement her with a product that’s called Doc Roy’s Healthy Bones. It has additional calcium and is appropriately mixed with phosphorus, vitamin K, vitamin D, magnesium and other things so that the calcium is well absorbed into her system. Obviously, there’s a huge demand on her body for calcium feeding these nine hungry mouths of hers.

We have another product that’s called Oxy Momma. It’s a supplement that is designed specifically to support mommas who are lactating, Oceana receives that as well. To keep her milk supply going with a generous milk supply, we also supplement her with fenugreek. Fenugreek is an herb that is used by women to increase their breast milk, and it also works well with dogs.
