The scale is finally headed in the right direction! It feels weird being this happy with weights that are STILL what I’d consider worryingly low for a brand-newborn puppy, but everyone is solidly over birthweight and on track to gain around 3/4 to 1 oz today. I am still tubing a couple, but every six hours instead of every two hours.
Daisy Poppy is eating decently (hooray!) and still not drinking (boo!), but I stopped fiddling around and now she’s getting 200 ml of water syringed in her cheek pouch every two to four hours and she can like it or lump it. The last time I did it she actually reached for the syringe when she saw it coming, so she KNOWS she needs it. She just has to know it enough to do it on her own!
More soon; must go switch puppies around!
