Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

A first time mommy, my nearly five year old bitch whelped a VERY large puppy that was 6 inches long and skull size 1.5 inches at the ears. After three hours of hard contractions, the puppy was born at 3am. She then whelped 2nd good size pup, 5 inches long and skull was 1 and 3/8 inches. Pups 4 and 5 were delivered by 5am.

Unfortunately she did not have enough milk. The puppies tried to nurse, and it hurt so she attacked and killed the first born and 2nd born. Very sad and tragic.

After consulting with Healing Touch for Animals practitioner, we did a series of methods to go forward and try to help mother dog to nurse. She was probably confused. She may have thought the contractions and pain, were punishment perhaps? Anyone's guess. She was in pain, and I had to firmly hold her to let 2 pups nurse.

Well, after trial and error, we rubbed Peace & Calming on her gums to help relax her. I still had to hold her, but instead of being stiff as a board and shaking the whole time, the pups nursed. She did slowly relax as I soothed her and talked to her, and did some work on her chakras.

The mommy must be kept away from them between feedings, and I am cleaning them, and keep them warm with a chicken hatching heat lamp. Not the perfect happy ending to this story, but at least she will relax using Peace & Calming on her gums. I tried applying it in different ways, but this is what worked. Prior to it, I tried the Common Sense oil blend, which helped make some progress during this first week of life for the two pups.

We now have two fat puppies.
