Prepare a nest that is big enough to contain the new born puppies and the mother. Size of the nest is dependant on the breed of the animal.  The nest should be warm enough and set far away from cold drafts. This is because newborn puppies are newborn puppies cannot regulate their body temperature.

Weigh the puppies every few weeks to check their weight. Checking their weight will ensure that they are getting properly fed and that their mother’s milk is adequate. If you are bottle feeding them don’t feed them with cows milk. The best type of milk is goat’s milk or bitch milk replacement. Feed them after every 3hours. Don’t use tap water to mix the canned milk as it has parasites that may harm them.

As they get older you can decrease the number of times that you feed them. Feeding bottle should have a human newborn bottle. The nipples on pet bottles don’t feed them well and also don’t use an eyedropper to feed them with.
