Pets need special care at different stages of life, such as during pregnancy and with newly born puppies. It is very important to have a veterinarian to monitor this period (the dog’s gestation is about two months) and to have the best guidelines on how to deal with pregnancy. The future mom will need a special diet, with a greater energy supply over the months to assist in the proper formation of the puppies. This nutritional need changes with each stage of canine pregnancy and, in the end, the mother must be ready to produce milk and breastfeed her puppies. The tours can continue, but more carefully. Distances and speed should be shorter and preferably in the early morning or late afternoon. When you are approaching the end of canine pregnancy, you may notice some signs that childbirth is approaching. The dog may become less active, look for a quieter and sometimes hidden place to rest and even start producing milk. This is the time for you to offer her the greatest possible comfort, preparing a sheltered, warm, clean and calm place. And care for the puppies? Care for the puppy should begin in the womb. To guarantee a healthy pregnancy it is essential that the female is also in good nutritional condition. Only then will it be able to generate puppies that have an adequate childhood and growth. Until the 45 days of life of the litter is the ideal time to maintain the breastfeeding of the puppies, as long as the mother is able to breastfeed. Until then, the furry ones should consume only breast milk that already has the necessary nutrients for healthy growth. Weaning is a natural process that dogs go through when they are a month or a little older. During this period they can receive baby food, still interspersed with milk. To help the pet understand that what is being served is to eat and not to play, it is necessary to let it smell and lick before offering. When they start to eat solid food, the puppies should receive the same food until 12 months. Pregnant & Puppy Supplement: why is it important?
