Default 2 week old pups

Advise please: My lab delivered 9 puppies, 2 weeks ago. She doesn't spend much time feeding, seems to leave them longer each day, 4 hours or more....is that normal? they are frantic when she appears in the 'box' and try to feed, she is not bothered and cleans them and just hops out again. They have put on wieght since last week. but seems a long time to leave them. getting worried. Tia

Each mother is different and some leave their pups more than others. The important point is that the pups are putting on weight and look healthy and well. At 2 weeks, if you feel they are hungry, I would try them with some Nutrolac Puppy Milk or a suitable puppy milk alternative. Not "human" milk. They should be able to lap at 2 weeks and I would definitely start the weaning process from 3 weeks of age.

I am sure you are doing it but keep an eye out for her jumping onto a puppy and squishing it.

I have had lab litters weening from just 3 weeks and by now you may well be enjoying to janitorial duties that come with a litter of labs on solids !

Are the nails being cut ? This can put off a mum.

Good luck and have fun.
