Newborn Pomeranian puppies are often quite fragile and often require skilled Pomeranian baby puppy care. However, skilled puppy care from birth will help improve the chances of baby Pomeranians surviving.
As a champion Pomeranian breeder for many decades, I would like to share my knowledge of
how to care for newborn puppies and their mother.
Purchase Necessary Pomeranian Whelping Supplies
Ensure you have the necessary Pomeranian whelping supplies well before your Female’s due date.
Move the mother to the place where she will whelp at least 10 days prior to birth. This helps her relax and become comfortable in that space. This is also helpful if she happens to give birth earlier than anticipated, because she’ll already be relaxed in her environment.
Each mum must also have her own space for whelping so she doesn’t get over-excited and bark at other dogs from a distance or other pets.
If this does happen, she should have her space in a different room to all other pets. If not, she can get distracted and may step on a newborn Pomeranian puppy or simply neglect her litter because her focus is elsewhere.
Groom and Bath Your Female Pomeranian Prior to Whelping
Before your female Pomeranian is ready for whelping, brush her body thoroughly but gently to get rid of any loose hair that may get into a newborn Pomeranian puppy’s mouth and cause either choking or an impact on the intestines. Shave her stomach a few days beforehand so the Pomeranian baby puppies can easily get to her teats to suck on. Trim long hair to avoid puppies getting tangled.info
