Question about Calsorb

I read a post today where someone had suggested using Calsorb during the whelping process and that it had prevented a c-section for them.
Can anyone tell me how this is used and how it works to possibly prevent a possible c-section?
I have the link to it and see its sold in a syringe, so I'm assuming its administered orally.

Reading recently I came across a few sites that recommended calcium during labor, from what I understand it causes them to contract. I do not know if calsorb is for the same purposes, hopefully someone here knows more and will answer, I'm interested in knowing as well. Heres what I found at a few sites...
Extra calcium is given only after pups are born, and during active labor, to help with contractions for another reason, other than teeth and bone growth of pups. Calcium during the pushing stage of labor will make the muscles contract at that specific moment.
At the first sign of a contraction, give her some calcium. Offer her vanilla Ice cream, or chew a tum and spit in her mouth, or use Calsorb.

Here's what I think your wanting to know about Calcium and or calsorb.Calcium, either calsorb, vanilla ice-cream, or tums.
Vanilla Ice cream is awesome between puppies, as it gives them hydration, glucose for energy, and a calcium boost, will help the parathyroid gland to release a hormone from her bones, to help with muscles and pushing.
Hope this helps you, I know its information I keep on hand.

^_^:
Calsorb is a readily available source of calcium. You can give it to the mother during whelping as it will increase the muscles' ability to contract. It is readily absorbed into the blood stream and works very fast (faster than through foods with calcium or Tums). It is very helpful in cases of uterine inertia (when the muscles quit contacting) and can often start or strengthen the contractions. It is liquid given orally.

I get my information from Myra Harris who is a well known speaker on canine reproduction and puppy care. She has a yahoo group. Here is the link http://pets.groups.yahoo.com/group/C...pro-PuppyCare/

It is one of the most informative groups on this subject I have seen.

^_^:
As a nurse I would just say to be careful about giving too much calcium. If it is given from food the level of calcium is probably fine. Calcium levels are mostly depleted from pups nursing. Calcium levels are a balancing act and both too much or too little can cause major problems.
Too much calcium can cause heart arrythmias (rhythm changes), bradycardia (slowing of the heart rate). Also giving too much calcium when it is not needed can cause the parathyroid to suppress secretion of a hormone that tells the body to release more calcium in the blood stream. This can cause eclampsia or decrease levels of calcium.
With my pregnant Molly I fed her a very good food and late in the pregnancy she was given a multivitamin for her weight. She was also given some goat's milk while she was nursing.

this is great information

^_^:
this is great information Myra is a nurse and a breeder of Cavalier King Charles Spaniels
She does do seminars on Canine Reproduction and has books and the Canine Repro lists where she helps other breeders with greatly needed information.
I have used Calsorb for my girls when whelping and needing that extra edge, I would much more prefer the use of Calsorb instead of the pit shots that had become so commonly used in whelping and as a clean out shot.
I just would not be without Calsorb and my vet also has approved me using it.

Deana So Calsorb acts like Oxi would work?

^_^:
I'm on Myra's list also, it's a wealth of information. Calsorb does take place of oxy for making stronger contractions when needed. She recommends a clean out shot after each birth with oxytocin.

^_^:
I think I'm going to order some "just in case" as you never know. I like to have everything possible for ever birth. I don't think you can ever have too much.

^_^:
Can you post what the dosage is for a yorkie mama?
