Hello. Thanks for your question. In the clinical studies done when this product went on the market, it was tested in pregnant dogs, and no serious problems were seen. It does get into the milk, however. I would stop giving it at least a month before breeding so it is out of her system when she gets pregnant, but if she gets accidentally pregnant while on it, I would stop giving it until the puppies are weaned. Does this help? Let me know if I can answer anything else. Rebecca
