Hi,

Sorry to bother the list again! I have so many questions and I find this site a big help!

When does a pregnant bitch usually start producing milk or a milky clear substance from the nipples?
Is two weeks before whelp too early?

Hi,
Not much help I'm afraid Justine. The milk is supposed to really come in day 3 after whelping. Before that its just a little colostrum. But Jasmine had very little milk and with 9 pups I had to do some serious supplementing with bottles. No fun at all.

With my first litter the bitch was dripping milk 4 days before she whelped.
