Despite this being her first litter, Csilla is an excellent momma. Everyone is clean and well fed. At the puppy weigh-in tonight, all have gained weight. The puppies spend their time sleeping (90%) and eating (10%). They are very excited to be at the “milk bar” and when they eat they make little puppy noises, its adorable.
In order to produce enough milk for everyone, momma is getting lots of special treats (besides her food, which I’ve tripled) she gets chicken broth, scrambled eggs and cottage cheese.
She is starting to look like my girl again and has regained her “waist” – apparently she is the Angelina Jolie of Vizslas. We can’t have her lose any more weight though, so tomorrow I am investigating some higher protein food items for her.
