Red Rasp. Leaf Powder
Organic Red Raspberry Leaf Powder is used as a traditional herbal remedy for the symptomatic relief of problems associated with whelping and an aid in the prevention of false pregnancy in dogs and cats. Due to its action as a uterine tonic, this well known birth aid has been used for hundreds of years to help ensure an easy and straightforward delivery. Many bitches who have previously experienced problems have subsequently had normal, easy births with the aid of the herb. By strengthening the uterine muscles, thus strengthening the contractions, it is known to help reduce the delivery time and make the labor less painful, making delivery easier and faster for the bitch and the puppies.
Red Raspberry Leaf is known to be effective in the prevention of phantom or "false" pregnancy. Bitches who are prone to this condition should be given the recommended dosage from the first sign of coming into season and continued for 12 weeks as a preventative measure.
