Moving to a high energy dog food such as a puppy food for the period of pregnancy is beneficial as the additional calories and higher levels of other key nutrients are perfectly suited to the nutritional requirements of the pregnant or lactating bitch. This is particularly advisable if your bitch is quite lean, or you suspect she may have a large litter of puppies. During lactation, the bitch's appetite may be increased, so a good quality high energy dog food should be fed.
