hello.i am no expert but your jrt bitch may be a little run down after giving birth and suckling a litter.

A trip to the vets for a vitamin shot maybe the answer.

you could also feed her a diet rich in vitamins for a few weeks to see if she picks up,beef chicken,eggs etc!

My bitch likes a raw egg,to improve her coat when she is in moult,but make sure the eggs you buy are as fresh as you can get them.

Hope this helps.

regards

john
