Caring for puppies after parturition

Newborn puppies are vulnerable and highly dependent on their mother for the first few weeks after birth. They are poor at regulating normal bodily functions and cannot see or hear. Most mothers (even first-time mums) have good instincts that help them care for their puppies. But, if your dog is expecting puppies, make sure you know what puppies need and when to intervene in case something goes wrong.
