Doggie gave birth to 4 pups just over a week ago. Before she gave birth she was out of the house at least 2-3 times a day for walks/play. Now she is itching to get out again, but I'm a little paranoid about her picking up 'germs' and passing them to the pups. At the moment the only exercise she is getting is play in the back yard. She is all up to date with shots, worming and during her pregnancy went to the vet for a checkup and given the all clear. Is it a good idea to take her out walking again? If not, do I have to wait until the pups are gone? Can my boy pick up 'germs' and pass them on too? He hasn't been out either for the same fear.
