We have a full litter of puppies and need some advice
Wildcat09 posted:
We don't know when we should introduce water and food into their diet. When are their eyes suppose to open?
They are only 8 days old right now.
When should we go to the vet to get their first shots and checkup?
Will Draper, DVM responded:
Wildcat- we usually like to see newborns at 4-5 days of age. That first week is crucial to assure that they are hearty and nursing well. They will usually open their eyes around 2 weeks of age, and should not be offered food or water until their teeth start coming in at around 3-4 weeks. As far as starting shots and deworming, the average time for that is around 6 weeks of age (some vets will wait until 8-9 weeks). Best thing to do is set up a litter visit with your vet who will surely be able to set up a timetable/plan for your litter. Congrats...and good luck!
