What to do when you’re getting your litter?
Is it your first time? If you are not yet familiar with this process, you will need some extra ideas to assist you. Here are a few things that you might find interesting.
- Prepare a box or anything soft that the little puppies can lie down on. Make sure it is a comfortable size for your dog and there is enough space for the puppies as well.
- Place it in a nice and quiet room with a blanket or anything that can cover the top of the box. If you are using a mat, then I suggest you make a small tent. Dogs would like to feel safe and since you covered it all up, it would feel like she is in a den.
- Put your female dog’s favorite types of food in a bowl near the box and let her explore to find a place to give birth.
- She will then choose a place to give birth in the box. Make sure that you make the box comfy so that she won’t be on something hard when giving birth. It would also be good when the puppies come.
- Do not let any of your friends watch your dog give birth.
- Do not bring any other animals to watch the seen that your dog does not know. As much as possible, do not lessen situations that would make her feel uneasy. She needs a safe and quiet place for the process.
- When the puppy is already born, do not cut the placenta. It will get off naturally. Cutting it off might cause hemorrhage.
- Replace the stained cloth or newspaper with another clean one and do it regularly.
- As always, let the mother have some time to be with her children for at least 4-5 days in peace with no one to disturb them.
- Check the temperature. Make sure the room is at a right temperature. Not too hot and not too
Since the puppies are already born and have been around for quite long, it is now okay to bring visitors in! Make sure their hands are “Well- Sanitized”. Do not let them bring unwanted germs into the house.
