Puppy Intensive Care - A Breeder's Guide to Care of Newborn Puppies by Myra Savant-Harris



Add to wishlist

If puppies are on the way, you want those newborns to have the best possible chance of survival and good health by being prepared. You can’t count on a vet being available, so breeders need to learn these skills. 

Breeders can save puppy lives!

Learn to use the same techniques that medical hospitals use on human newborns to save the lives of puppies. Because many of the problems encountered in newborn pups have nothing to do with genetics or birth defects, it is important for the breeder to be prepared to administer simple, straightforward measures to help a puppy in distress. 

 Author and dog breeder Myra Savant-Harris applies her experience from more than 20 years of labor and delivery and neonatal nursing to caring for newborn puppies. She gives you this information in friendly, non-technical language, as one dog breeder to another who knows what it’s like to be the only chance this puppy has to survive. 

You will learn:
• How to evaluate the status of a newborn puppy before taking action
• How to warm a chilled pup, administer oxygen and hydration
• What the best way is to replace colostrum if the mom can’t provide it
• What equipment to have on hand, where to buy it and how to use it
BONUS! A DVD comes with the book so you can see exactly how to use these life-saving skills

Edition: 2006 Paperback, 61 pages.
