So there’s two things we want to make sure
we first do any time we get in a puppy like this. This one actually we were told was dropped
off here without its mother. She does not have a other so we’re going to have to take
care of it just like its mother would. Two things we first need to do is; 1) we need
to make sure that the puppies go to the bathroom. Puppies do not go to the bathroom without
assistance from their mother so what you’ll do is you will take a wet rag, a nice clean
wet rag and use some nice warm water, I have some nice warm water here and just like a
mother would lick a puppy to get it to go to the restroom we would do the same thing
with this puppy and so we’re going to stimulate the puppy to urinate and I don’t know if you
can see that but she is peeing and then we are going to also stimulate her to see if
she can go poo as well so we’re going to do both and she is going to be very uncomfortable
if you don’t do this first. They won’t want to eat, they won’t want to do anything until
they have gone to the bathroom so as you can see she kind of feels like oh that feels good.
If you want to rub the tummy as well and that helps the digestion and this is exactly what
the mother pup would do. The mother would be licking the baby’s stomach and all the
way around this area to get her to go to the bathroom.
