Newborn Puppy Care- Health

There's nothing more exciting than the birth of healthy puppies, but there are many things to take care of all these new little beings in this new world. But don't worry. Check out this newborn puppy care guide for what you need to know to raise a litter of healthy, happy puppies.

Young puppies are prone to illness and infection, so you need to take the time to care for them and keep an eye on them. Newborn puppy care should include regular checks for signs of infection or health. If you notice vomiting, diarrhea, or your puppy's inability to stand or eat, etc., report any abnormalities to your veterinarian immediately.

Small puppies are also particularly susceptible to fleas and other parasites, so discuss proper parasite control measures with your veterinarian before parasites endanger your puppy's health. Also don't forget that you and all family members need to wash your hands thoroughly before interacting with these puppies to help reduce the risk of them getting sick from germs that may be lurking on your hands.
