Feeding a pregnant bitch

I've never bred Chis. My little girl is too small for me to risk breeding. However, I did breed Bulldogs. I'm assuming the same would be true... You need to have them on a high quality puppy food (which it sounds like you do). I would make sure she eats whenever she wants. Use scrambled eggs, boil a chicken and pick the meat off. Whatever you can add to her puppy kibble to get her to eat it. I would stay away from cottage cheese or canned food. You want to keep her sodium intact down. Also, the vitamins are very important. She should be taking folic acid daily. Ask your vet what the dosage would be for her weight. Folic acid helps prevent birth defects. She should be fully vaccinated too.

Good luck!
