When we had our little Josie and she had her babies, the vet said to make sure when she was pregnant and nursing to feed her puppy food as she needed the calories, I also used Nutrical as a supplement and just tried to keep it quiet, she had one episode of a bit of mastitis and I just used warm compressed and massaged her. Our vet told me I could not bathe with soap until the puppies had their eyes open (so she was a mess) he was a firm believer in this as all the puppies had was their sense of smell, so I was only able to rinse her in warm water. I didn't really notice much hair loss, but I am sure all dogs like humans are different. Good luck with your babies. Post pics when you can.....
