Question
Hi,
My female dog came into heat today ( 25th April 2013 ) ..

1) Can you tell me on which days it is advisable to mate her to ensure successful conception ???

2) I add 5 ml of a ( Multi-Vitamin & Amino Acids ) tonic and 5 ml of a Coat Conditioner in her diet daily ... Is it advisable to continue the tonics prior and post mating ???

Regards,
Pranesh

Answer
Hi,
Most females fertile time is the thirteenth day of heat, counting today (the twentyfifth) as the first day.  So I would breed her the eleventh and the thirteenth.

I would stop any vitamins etc  after she is bred.  Just to be on the safe side.
