Stages of puppies life from day 1 to 8 weeks.

Newborn puppy

This puppy is still wet from being birthed . Always a good practice to take the weight and time born and put on a chart for each puppy twice a day.. if more than just a few you should add colored collars, so they are easier to extinguish. Once in the morning and once at night..Some pups or all pups may lose a few ounces in first couple days till moms milk starts to come in. First few days she will have colostrum , which is very beneficial to pups health. After a few days right away pups should start gaining weight. If you have a few that are not, them are the ones that could be in trouble.. sometimes in larger litters you may have to sub some with a bottle  with goats milk replacement for puppies. Always remember if doing Tails and dew claws , it is best done within first two days of life.

6 week old pup

This pup is 6 weeks old it is ready for lots of play and lots of sleep at this age. In many states it is legal to sell. But in the state if Florida you must wait till 8 weeks old. Also a good time to run another round of wormer .. lots of breeder like to use panacur on this dose. And will catch other worms that pyrantel didn't get.. Also a good time to talk to vet for pre check up before 8 weeks to make sure everything looks good.
