While this particular “nursing relationship” is not the norm, it holds true that if you have a nursing dog then she will need to maintain perfect health if the pups (or, in this case…kittens) are to grow strong from her milk. Proper nutrition is very important to lactating dogs in order to recuperate from the birthing process as well as to maintain the energy needed to nurse and take care of several demanding and hungry puppies.
Healthy milk production in nursing dogs is vitally important to sustain the puppies and give them a healthy start in life. Since they are not eating solid foods early on in life, their mother’s milk is their sole source of nutrition.
Very often, lactating dogs have difficulty producing a consistent, healthy flow of milk. Your mother dog, for various reasons, may not be producing the highest quality milk that she can. Although you will not be able to tell at the time, problems can manifest themself later in the puppies’ lives. Just like human babies who are not given adequate nutrition from the beginning of their lives, dogs can also suffer the eventual consequences of poor nutrition.
