The pups are amazingly active and mobile for this age and have no problem finding a feeding station at the milk bar or a comfortable place to nap in the whelping box. The whelping box has pig rails, those white boards, that protect the pups from accidentally getting rolled on by Jam. We also have a heat lamp in one corner of the box to keep the pups warm and the box at an optimal temperature as the puppies are too young to regulate their own body temperature. A puppy getting too cold can be deadly.
Jam enjoys many meals throughout the day and plenty of water to help make an adequate supply of milk for these ever hungry pups.
