On the plus side
A good day today. All the puppies showed a weight gain from yesterday. My little one, who had lost each day, had a good gain, so that's very encouraging. It's always hard following a c-section as the anesthesia tends to slow down milk production for a few days. There's still some there, but not in abundance, and the littler puppies are the ones who lose out.
I supplemented the three smallest ones yesterday with formula, and it paid off. This morning when I went in to give them a bottle, they all had full tummies so had done a good job nursing on their own.
Here's a picture I just took, a jumble of puppies to be sure.
Also, just talked to Andrea, Salsa is doing very well, her crew all showed a gain today as well, so she's pleased.
