Best food for pregnant doberman

We have just breed our 2 yr old AKC blue female doberman for the first time and have read all kinds of literature about the breeding process and about what to expect but was really looking for some advise about what food is the best dog food to be feeding her that is high in fat and vitamins we have checked into a few and read the ingredients and have gotten a little advise from the vet but would really like the advise from previous breeders as to what they feel is the best thing to feed her. We have owned 3 previous dobermans but they were males. First time for this.

Don't have any good advice i think there's no problem if you stick to your dog food, because mine don't change it to any kind of food.
When my doggy become pregnant I stick to eukanuba until the time is come and I get 6 healthy babies.

Do you have a mentor you are working with? Is your veterinarian a reproductive specialist?

If not, I'd recommend you contact your local DPCA chapter club and see if you can get in touch with a good mentor to help you: The DPCA | Chapter Clubs. They can help you identify a good veterinarian in your area who is experienced with Dobermans and their specific health issues (for example, do your know both the bitch and sire's vWD status?).
