I have given my girls Pulsatilla and Raspberry leaf (not at the same time) and it made no difference to them, they still have full blown phantom pregnancies..
I am definitely going to get some sepia, it sounds promising.
Where is the best place to buy it from online?
We had terrible trouble with cherry's first season, milk, weight gain and all I can describe as an annoying soppyness. We took her to the vet as we had no idea what to do. He gave her pills which caused her to pile on a load of weight. This time we gave her something homeopathic (sorry can't remember) and raspberry leaf tablets from day one of her season, no phantom but some weight gain which we have now dieted off. Only problem is did the tablets work or did she just not phantom this time?
I have one here going through this right now. She ripped up a lounge cushion this morning, and yesterday dug two enormous holes in our backyard. She has also developed some impressive "child-bearing hips" - which is nice, since I am supposed to be showing her on the weekend...
I would personally rather not use anything "medical" to get her through it. We just ride it out and try to distract her with other things.
We've used both pulsatilla and sepia depending on the type of bitch. Pulsatilla tends to be for the quiet or timid ones , Sepia for the more feisty. Sepia given just after the season ends helps to regulate the seasons.
We use Ainsworths (020 7935 53300), if you ring you can talk to a homeopathic vet who will give advice and we always get stuff the next day.
