Neonatal Puppy Care: Create the Optimal Environment for Neonates
December 10, 2020
Do newborn puppies need anything? The answer is, Yes. Newborn puppies are the most fragile dogs we have. As newborns, they don’t have the resources to adapt to internal and external environmental changes the world throws at them. Small changes in temperature, humidity, oxygen, and food intake can destabilize their ability to maintain their internal bodily functions. When we provide them the support they need, they can not only survive but thrive.
Revival Animal Health’s Director of Veterinary Services, Dr. Marty Greer and Ken Sunden, CEO of Puppywarmer will discuss how to keep newborn puppies warm, how do you help a weak newborn puppy, the 4 H’s of neonatal puppy care, how the 4 H’s are intertwined and how the Puppywarmer system can significantly change your success rate in raising puppies.
