The moment we know she is pregnant we give her high quality prenatal vitamins every day. The prenatals are a blend of vitamins and minerals that work to provide the essential nutrients for the development of healthy newborn puppies. On top of that, we work hard to give the expecting momma high quality food everyday to assure she and her babies have the best nutrition possible.
As the due date approaches, we are constantly checking in on her to reassure we are there as she delivers the first pup. Although we don’t have to do much work during labor, we do make sure they have a warm environment to come out to and are kept warm while their siblings are arriving. We give the mom calcium during labor to reenergize her and give her the strength to keep pushing through the hardest part of it all for her, delivering the puppies. We also give colostrum to the newborns that’s appetite is not the best. Colostrum gives them energy and the appetite to nurse well and obtain their needed nutrition.
Taking Care of the pups
From the time they are born we are taking excellent care of each and every one of those beauties. Since we are worried that the mother might accidently squish one of the pups, we are there every 2 hours to bring the mom to the newborn pups so she can nurse them. That is very tiring as we also do it during the whole night but we would do anything for our puppies health and well being. Mom and the pups spend lots of time together but we always are there to monitor them to make sure everything is alright. We take all of our puppies to the vet so she can examine them completely. From how they look, to the eyes, hips, and heart.
