Happy fur-thers Day
my little fur babies are becoming more mobile. Moving around the box well. All though the front teeth will pop through first the back ones are swollen the most. You can feel the gums very puffy. It won't be long now till they can start on soft mush. This fills the stomach longer and they don't cry as much because they are hungry. I put the litter pan in yesterday for awhile. Right away 3 of them pee'd in it. It was a success. I just have to watch they don't eat the pellets. It's not harmful. But will expand in stomach. So I will keep at the process. This is new to us. It has been recommended by a couple breeders because it works so well. So we will see.
On another note I wanted to talk about vets. Everyone knows I've made multiple trips to the vet for consultation and services. I believe in vets and their experience and help. Even when I do puppy shots I take the pups to the vet, I do not vaccinate myself. Vets play a big part in your pups health. Just like kids. It's important to trust your vet and have a good relationship. Now on to my rant. Not all vets like or believe in crossbreeds. They can let their personal opinions interfere with the what's best for a pup. If you have a health issue and your vet wants to order hundreds or thousands of dollars of tests, get a second opinion. Just like you would a child. I've read quite a few articles in the last week of vets charging patients hundreds of dollars for unnecessary tests and the diagnosis was a simple urinary track infection or a juvenile vaginitis. I'm just asking that you question a vet before they talk you into emptying your wallet. You want to do what's best for your fur baby and in the moment it's easy to be talked into doing everything a vet wants. Just take a moment and ask if it's not life threatening can I get a second opinion. Ok rant over. Have a great fur-thers Day.
Oh and lilac ate very well last night and this morning. I've been syringing her. She is eating about 15mls at a time. I do have to be careful because she drips it on her self then she gets cold because she is wet. Then the other pups want to lick the milk on her making her more wet. So I'm working on an idea to bib her to help.
