Some friends feel very upset because they have some new puppies in their hands and don’t know how to feed them. In fact, without the care and feeding of female dogs, it is still difficult to raise them, so we need more company and more patience and care when taking care of them. So, how to feed the new puppy?
1. Diet rules. First of all, for the newly born puppies, due to the incomplete development of gastrointestinal function, we must try to choose some digestible ones for them at this time. Here we can consider buying goat’s milk or foreign milk powder, which are very suitable for dogs to absorb. We should avoid feeding milk, because it is not easy for dogs to absorb and digest, and it is easy to have diarrhea. Generally, puppies are fed once every two hours. After the first week, they can be weaned once every four hours. Of course, if you don’t have much time at ordinary times, you can also think about three times a day in the morning, in the middle and in the evening, but don’t feed too much at one time. Pay attention to the quantity.
2. Stimulate defecation. Stimulate defecation because the puppies who have just been born a few times have not yet learned to defecate, so at this time, whenever we finish the meal for about 10 to 15 minutes, we can gently wipe the puppies’ anus with a wet tissue, which can stimulate defecation. Remember to do this operation to stimulate defecation after feeding the puppies every time. When the puppies are one month old, they can start to feed some dog food. However, the dog food still needs to be soaked in warm water, so that it is easy to digest. At the same time, they need to remember a small amount of food. If they eat too much food at one time, it is easy to lead to poor gastrointestinal digestion, and they also need to avoid feeding miscellaneous food to the dogs.
3. Vaccinations and insect repellents. Vaccinations and insect repellents are very fragile in the intestines and stomachs of puppies just born. In order to avoid gastrointestinal diseases of puppies at this time, we must pay attention to vaccinations and insect repellents for puppies. Of course, we’d better do them when the puppies are a little older, otherwise the puppies’ bodies can’t stand it. We can consider going again when they are three or four months old. In addition, frequent bathing should also be avoided, because puppies are still weak in physique. At this time, frequent bathing is not only easy to catch cold, but also easy to get skin diseases. The above is about how to feed puppies.
In fact, the newly born puppies are very fragile. They must be carefully and patiently raised so that they can thrive smoothly.
