The babies will need to be fed a commercial canine milk replacer.

Be sure to use one specifically formulated for puppies, as cow's milk and other milk replacer can cause diarrhea.

Puppies will need bottle or syringe feeding every few hours for several weeks.

A good rule of thumb is a ratio of five minutes exercise per month of age (up to twice a day) until the puppy is fully grown, i.e.

15 minutes (up to twice a day) when three months old, 20 minutes when four months old etc.

Once they are fully grown, they can go out for much longer.

Some dogs have no problems digesting milk and dairy products.

Yet others experience acute intestinal distress β€” like gas, diarrhea or vomiting β€” whenever they consume these kinds of foods.

It all comes down to how your dog handles a specific nutrient found in milk β€” a nutrient known as lactose.
