|The puppies are not left with the mother as with other breeds. Instead, they are kept separated from
the mother except for feeding. Every 3 to 4 hours, the puppies are brought to the mother for feeding.
Once full, they are then removed to their holding area.
Because of the C section procedure, it usually takes a week or so for the mother to develop the
sufficient amount of milk. So for the first week to second week, the feeding is supplemented by
inserting a feeding tube into the puppies stomach and injecting goats milk.
At 3 to 4 weeks, the puppies are introduced to a gruel supplement along with their nursing. Around this
same time, they are taken to the vet for a full health checkup.
