Breeding Pomeranians Caring For your Pomeranian

Hand Rearing Pomeranian Puppies

pomeranian baby puppiesPomeranian babies are very small at birth, an average newborn Pomeranian baby weighs between 2 and 5 oz at birth. Puppies must be kept warm , at a constant temperature of 95-100 F (35 – 38 C) the first week. The temperature can be slowly dropped to 75 F (24 C) after the age of 3 weeks. I personally prefer the use of an overhead infra-red light for heat purposes and I keep a bowl of water nearby to keep the atmosphere near the puppies moist.

It is imperative that the puppies never become dehydrated. You can easily check that puppy is not dehydrated, by pulling a little skin up and checking how quickly the skin returns to normal. Chilled puppies are unable to digest their food. Sorry the complete article is only available to our Premium members. Please join us now.
