Controlling Odors When Your Bitch Is In Season
I want to make breeders aware of a product that is helpful when your girls are in season. Liquid Chlorophyll - 100mg which is found in a health food store is extremely helpful in masking season and urine odors. When the girls are in season I use 1 tablespoon A.M. and P.M. feedings (poured on the girls food) and this helps to mask the odor. I have found my males will usually continue to eat even when caged in the same room when a bitch in season as long as the girls are on chlorophyll from the first day of their season. You can use it in powdered form, pills or capsules and dose according to the bottle, for adult humans. Often this is used for colostomy patients, so if you have a hard time locating it ask the pharmicist or a store that carries medical supplies. You can purchase it on the internet and Nutrition Express will ship overseas.
I am not saying the dog forgets she is in season, he is just not as crazy about breeding because the chlorophyll has helped mask/absorb the odor. Do not, I repeat, do not trust putting the animals together or you may end up with an unwanted litter and, of course, don't use chlorophyll if you are intending to breed your bitch as some males will refuse to breed. It may interfere with the male's interest in your girl! I have found the liquid works a little better than the capsules, just use one or the other when the girls are in season.
Also note: their stools will be Kelly green in color when they are on chlorophyll so don't panic and think something is wrong.
Chlorophyll can be purchased from health food stores or contact: World Organics Corporation, P.O. Box 8207, Fountain Valley, California 92728. The cost is approximately $14.00 per pint which will last for more than one season.
