How to Care for Newborn Puppies! Tips and Advice on How to Care for a Newborn Puppy!

Hi everybody and welcome back to Relax
My Dog, today me and Milo are going to be talking about how to care for newborn
puppies so let's get started so during the first few weeks of life for a puppy, the most important thing to them is being fed, keeping warm and also
developing their social skills as well so firstly we're going to be talking
about feeding for your newborn puppies so a mother's dog milk provides
everything that the puppies need for their first four weeks of life and
puppies will be fed once every two hours within their first week and obviously as
the puppies grow these intervals of feeding will obviously get longer and
larger meaning that they won't be fed as often but still obviously when they're
puppies they do get fed quite a lot obviously there might be different
circumstances whether your puppies are orphaned or if the mother of the
puppies are completely out of the picture, if this is the case definitely
consult your vet for any guidance that they may need because obviously the
puppies needs to be getting as much nutrients as they can get, and it's also
important to note that you can actually harm the puppies if you do try to feed
them so make sure you're consulting your vet to find out the exact proper way on
how you should be doing this because it is very very easy to harm them at that
stage, and they can usually make this transition from nursing to solid food
after four weeks of life, so now we've moved on from feeding we can now move
back on to the dogs keeping warm so the combination of their mothers
body heat, their mother's milk and also using blankets where they sleep, this
combination should be enough to keep your puppies warm, however if you do feel
that the puppies aren't warm enough, make sure you are using a hot water bottle
filled with warm water not really really hot, just warm water or a heating pad
set to a low temperature to keep the puppies warm, because obviously puppies at that age can develop hypothermia extremely quick and extremely easily so
it's important to keep them warm so moving on from feeding your dogs and
also keeping your puppies warm, it's also important for your dogs to develop the
social skills within your house, now during the first two weeks of your
puppy's life, try to keep the handling of the puppies to a minimum, you want the puppies to be developing that relationship with their mother and also
with their brothers and sisters as well you may notice that the mother
will keep a very very strong eye on the puppies so it's important to let them
develop this relationship and to bond properly, as well as creating that
relationship with the mother, they also need to create that relationship with
their brothers and sisters as well, so letting them have their own space, their
own time is extremely key at this time of their life now moving on to
vet visits, now I'm assuming that your puppies are healthy, vets don't recommend bringing the puppies in until they're about six weeks old,
obviously if your puppies are showing any signs of not being healthy or having
issues, do take them into the vet as soon as possible. Some signs that you should look out for with your puppies are a lack of appetite, poor weight gain and
also vomiting as well, you should also look out for diarrhea, coughing or
wheezing and also difficulty breathing as well as constant crying, pale gums,
obviously if one of your puppies is acting a bit strange or not
like the other puppies, it may be important to ask for some guidance from
a vet or have a look online for what this may mean and that is it for this week's
