Newly Born Puppies
Newborn puppies are born with very little capacity to adapt to environmental stresses. They are extremely vulnerable. However, with proper care and attention to the special needs of these infants, many neonatal deaths can be avoided. Two crucial factors to watch closely are the puppy’s body temperature and his weight. A puppy’s appearance, strength of suckle, sound of cry, and general behavior are also important indicators of his health and well-being.
