WHY DO DOG KILL HER PUPPY?


NATURE SAY’s: - ONLY THE BEST SURVIVES


DOG FEEDING HER PUPPY
(DOG FEEDING HER PUPPY)



There are many reasons why new born puppies die like


  • Respiratory problems

  • Mastitis

  • Circulation problems

  • Puppies being either too hot or too cold

  • Mom neglecting the pups by refusing to lay next or nurse them






  • Physical defects in the puppy

  • Any Infections

and other issues are as follows.



ACCIDENTAL KILLING


  • DOG’s might accidentally kill’s her own puppies by crushing them or suffocate the puppies (covering the mouth & nose).

  • If mother feels that there is not at all an adequate supply of food then she may kill one or more of her puppies to ensure the survival of herself and the others to produce MILK.




KILLING SICK PUPPIES


  • Many time’s, when puppies act sickly or when they have something wrong (which we as owners may not be able to visualize), mother may purposely kill puppy/puppies so she can focus on the healthier puppies.

  • It may start like the mother is pushing the puppy away from her and other puppies all times, the mother may even eat the puppy. This is NOT CRUELTY for a DOG way of thinking but it is a NATURAL SELECTION and part of the DOG's evolutionary process. If one puppy is sick, it may attract unwanted predators.

  • The mother senses if there is something wrong with a puppy which can be congenital anomaly or a puppy that is stillborn/unhealthy. The mother's instinct thinks to get rid the unhealthy puppy to give the remaining young the best chance of survival. It's not necessarily signs to look that the DOG is unfit to raise the puppies.




INEXPERIENCED AND UNSTABLE MOTHERS

  • If the mother DOG may have been mating too young then DOG’s should never be bred on their first heat/PERIOD’s or she may not be a stable mother.

  • Normally, the mother will bond strongly with litter when oxytocin is released which acts as a “bonding hormone".





  • The hormone oxytocin is responsible for triggering contractions which helps with the expulsion of after birth, promote to release of milk and foster’s the strong bond between mother and her puppies.

STRESS ON MOTHER


  • Some dogs may kill their puppies if they feel stressed like not having a quiet place which could be a loud shelter or a busy home for the litter to live or there may be too many people coming to see the litter or the litter size may be too big for the dog to handle alone.

  • It can happen if the dog is in a stressful environment. Stress or fear can provoke as aggressive behaviour and she could easily direct it at the puppies. The stress levels may cause her to do the unthinkable and could kill the litter.




LACK OF RECOGNITION

  • Some DOG’s, especially a new mother might not recognize her own offspring. New puppies make sounds like some prey animals. Some DOG’s of HUNTING BREED heritage might mistake them for prey and KILL them or even EAT.




PROBLEMS WITH NURSING

  • There is a condition that makes it very painful for a mother to nurse her young. The pain might be enough for her to reject the litter.

  • If the dog has mastitis (a painful inflammation around the nipples), the pain of nursing could cause her to kill the puppies by not feeding them. NIPPLE’s should regularly monitor of their DOG that WORST condition to can be avoided.




SOLUTIONS: -


  • Take your Female DOG and litter to VET within 24 Hours of Delivery

  • Don’t let any un/known MALE or any other DOG or call up your friend’s/family near the NEST.

  • Don’t Punish female DOG for KILLING her puppy.

  • Take initiative if your female DOG is ignoring the litter or one or two puppies to bottle feed the puppy and clean the bottom of the puppy with luke warm water using cotton ball’s (don’t rub).






  • Try to keep room temperature as normal it is used to be.

  • Don’t interfere (picking up of puppy) during FEEDING the litter.
