Deworming during Pregnancy and Lactation
I have 2 Bitches, Husky and German Shepherd, it's been more than 6 months since last deworming and they do seem to have lost weight, so I feel the need to deworm asap, problem is, the Husky had a pup 4 days ago and the German Shepherd is also close to having pup est. 2 weeks.
Can I deworm them?
I usually use the Bob Marten Deworming Powder for the 3 most common worm varieties.

Your vet can advise you and supply you with dewormers that are safe to use in pregnant and lactating bitches. It is important to deworm them as they can pass some worms onto the pup via milk.
