Puppy Preciously Waves Paws During Bottle Feeding
Dog-persons would agree how adorable is to watch the puppy being fed with a bottle. This video will make you want to snuggle up next to this little guy! The adorable puppy knows how to use his bottle, and makes adorable suckling noises as he hands on to the bottle, just in case it slips away. The owner is just too enthusiastic to let this priceless moment slip away.
Caring for a newborn puppy means you are opening up your home and your life to a 24/7 schedule. In the early weeks of life, the mother dog generally takes on total care of her pups from their feeding to eliminate, but this pup in the video had to depend on a human because he rejected by its mother.
Fortunately one of the shelter staff stepped up to take on the challenge and puppy went off to their foster home that day. The puppy has to learn how to drink from the bottle; the foster caregiver has to learn how to get the puppy to take the bottle. First two weeks were very challenging with many sleepless nights.
Puppy thrived and grew quickly in their foster home. Thanks to the foster mom and her foster helpers, the pups have gone from blind, totally dependent, tiny three-week-olds to happy, lively adorable and bouncy youngsters. The foster mom was sad to see them go off to their new adoptive homes but is enjoying a rest, too! She says that it has been challenging, amazing, and so worth the time and effort. The joy factor has been huge!
A mommy dog’s milk provides everything to the pup need during their first four weeks of life. Sometimes baby animals cannot drink from their mothers for whatever reason, and these little orphans must rely on the help of caring humans and adorable baby bottles to get the nutrients that they need.
Newborn pups need feeding every two to three hours; the frequency drops to four times a day between 2 weeks and 3 weeks of age. You will need a special bottle with a nipple and puppy milk replacement formula. Do not feed cow's milk, as this can upset your puppy's digestive tract.
If you are caring for an orphan puppy or the mother is out of the seen, consult with a veterinarian doctor for guidance on the proper way to bottle-feed newborns, as it is easy to cause harm by doing it inappropriately.
