breeders, save this video

And for people who just love puppies too. Someone sent us this link. We've never had to hand feed a baby, but know plenty who have, and this is a Great technique to have in your backup files.

This lady has come up with a fantastic method. We have always hoped we didn't have to tube feed one, and this looks like a much better method.

The puppy fussing in the beginning lets those who have never experienced really young puppies know what they talk like.

Enjoy,

That was sweet to watch and I imagine a very useful bit in information to make artificial nursing much more natural for the pup. But, my goodness, she was sure crying a lot! I'd be in a panic! Apparently from your comment, that crying isn't because something is wrong with the puppy?

That was very normal crying. It gets the Mother's attention really fast. At that age for the first few weeks, they are either nursing, sleeping, or asking to be nursed. When one has trouble, the crying is a lot more pitiful.

Great video! Thanks for sharing. Much kinder and safer than using a syringe.

Very interesting and informative video. Tom. Will this little pup eventually be able to go back to her Mom for nursing and be albe to be with its siblings? I feel so bad for her all alone in her little cocoon, although it looks very soft and warm.

At the beginning of the video, she said it was a little one that got pushed aside by her larger siblings. We've never had one that was THat much smaller, but sometimes there is a large one that will root the others out of the way. We just make sure the big ones are towards the front, and move the smaller ones to the back. More milk is produced in the back teats typically.

I posted this just as some useful information, that may come in handy at some point for a breeder. A lot of times, you just have to go by feelings and instinct, and try different things to find something that works. It's as much art as science. Pam does things sometimes that I would never think of.

That puppy would have no trouble nursing on its Mother, but it might have been slow gaining weight, and this was a surefire way to make sure how much milk it was getting.
