Wheatgerm Oil Capsules
100, 200, 500 tablets
Wheatgerm Oil Capsules are a natural source of Vitamin E which helps skin, coat and maintains fertility in dogs and cats.
Naturally rich in vitamin E to support fertility and healthy skin
Wheatgerm oil is naturally rich in vitamin E, a potent antioxidant which neutralises free-radicals. Free radicals are produced as a by-product of everyday cell functions, so a plentiful supply of vitamin E is beneficial to keep them in check. Our Wheatgerm Oil Capsules can be given year-round to help promote a healthy skin and coat and are also used to maintain fertility and a healthy reproductive system in both male and female pets.
How can I help prepare my bitch for breeding?
Once you’ve made the decision to breed from your bitch, planning is key! From finding the perfect sire to ensuring she is in peak health, there’s a lot to think about. Her state of health and fitness prior to mating and throughout her pregnancy is key to ensuring the best possible outcomes for her and her pups. Exercise and diet need to be considered and it’s important to prepare yourself and her for the whelping.
One of the more important elements in the diet of the bitch before mating is vitamin E (often referred to as the ‘fertility vitamin’). An easy way to give vitamin E is by adding a daily measure of our Wheatgerm Oil, either capsules or liquid, to her feed. This has a high level of vitamin E in a natural form which is readily absorbed.
How should I use Wheatgerm Oil?
Ideally you should start giving our Wheatgerm Oil Capsules from the first sign of your bitch coming into season. On the day before and on the actual day of mating, double the amount to give an extra boost. You should then continue supplementing for three weeks following mating to provide support to the foetuses during the important first trimester. Dogs can also benefit from being given our Wheatgerm Oil Capsules, give for a week before mating, again doubling the amount given on the day before and on the actual day of mating.
Wheatgerm is also beneficial for skin health, thanks to its high levels of vitamin E, known to help reduce skin damage and support healthy collagen formation and added bonus of vitamins A, D, B vitamins and fatty acids. To help maintain skin condition, our Wheatgerm Oil Capsules should be given daily.
