Nature does not favor the weak. Sometimes an animal will produce a litter but there may be a baby that is not feeding properly because the mom has too little milk or the bigger siblings are pushing the weaker one away.
Breeders and animal rescuers are sometimes are faced with a puppy or other animal that is less than healthy because he/she is not able to get enough to eat.
Adele and Claude Bisson raise Yorkshire Terriers and Biewer Terriers and have discovered a novel way to feed a puppy that needs help by replicating as close as possible the natural method used by nursing mothers. Their method helps ensure a puppy gets well fed.
Adele grew worried about one tiny puppy named Lilly Blossom, who was the runt of the litter. So she began to hand-feed the puppy and came up with a clever way to get the baby to nurse and drink milk.
Adele writes this method should only be tried if you are confident and experienced around newborn puppies. Hand-feeding a baby animal takes ’round-the-clock care, but it’s clear Lilly Blossom is in experienced hands and will no doubt be up and running with her siblings soon.
