When it comes to whelping calcium is not about bones and teeth. The purpose of calcium during whelping is to give strength and intensity to the contraction. Calcium is stored in the bones; its release is regulated by the parathyroid gland. When the demand for calcium in the blood stream is high (such as during whelping) the parathyroid gland pulls it from the bone in to the blood stream. If it becomes clear that normal labour is slowing down this is when some breeders will give a calcium supplement (check correct dosage instructions on product) and also give glucose as it can help to strengthen and intensify a bitches contractions. When you give calcium orally the bitch`s body will excrete what she does not need, so It is completely safe and does not have any negative side affect’s. CALCIUM SUPPLEMENT should ONLY be given AFTER whelping/contractions have begun.
