Thread: Bitch's Milk Running Dry?

    Hi Goodies,

    Yes your questions were simple and I did my best to answer them. Hopefully you can expand on some of my responses with more information.

    That quote wasn't directed at you but was a general statement ... It's really me just holding up my hands and saying "don't shoot" just because I bred my own dogs.

    The more I read the more I'm getting the feeling that there is some sort of stigma with having bred my own dogs. Paranoia has nothing to do with it, it's just the undertones I'm picking up from conversations.


    Thanks,

    Do you have a kennel name?
    I just noticed you added an extra follow-up question.

    I'm not planning on registering the puppies as "Miniature Pinschers" for breeding or showing, only just microchipping and registering them with the local council.

    It's only mandatory to register with clubs if you intend to show or breed them publically as "Miniature Pinschers" right?

    Lovely pups. You sounds pretty well on top of their growth with weighing etc. I'm sure she will empty out at times, even humans do that with only one bub! She might not let her milk down for you as well - so you won't get any out even if it's lurking about in there...

    Thanks,
    You came on asking for help/advice! Not in sharing a happy occasion!!

    I have no doubt you dont want people sniping at you, and you are terribly defesive...

    What in all honesty do you expect from anyone here????? The questions asked have been resonable and responsible IMO.

    I think you are right ... The puppies seem to be feeding happily again so I'll check their weight again at 6am! Hopefully I'll see an extra 15 grams!

    I sure do want to share in the happy occasion! I posted a introduction and a few pictures of the puppies as well as outlining what I hoped to get out of this community. At the same time I do have little questions that I am confident other owners and breeders can easily answer.

    You are correct the majority of questions on the forum are quite reasonable, especially GoodiesGirls' ones and I did do my best to answer them. It's some other members that have been giving me a bit of stick.

    As long as the pups are putting on weight I wouldn't worry. They will empty a breast and then go to another. I would be feeding mum puppy food for the extra calories though

    In regards to breeding.. if you don't want to be classed as a BYBer then why don't you get the hip xrays and stuff and register your pups. It's also not much to register a kennel name

    If you already feed fresh meat simply add the ox cheek to the meat you usually use. If I could get it minced I fed it raw. If I could only get it in large pieces I cooked it as it's difficult to cut when raw.

    It's an old wives tale of course, the same as feeding a tiny bit of yogurt to pups to help prevent "fading puppy syndrome", but both worked for me and as Tolkien said: "...oft it may chance that old wives keep in memory word of things that once were needful for the wise to know..."
