    Default Update on Gypsy's 4 week old puppies

    So puppies turned 4 weeks today and boy are they changing...Starting to see more and more wrinkles and their personalities fun fun....Now I'm a little concerned about their weight we started the puppy mush which consist of ( natural choice chicken, brown rice, and oatmeal puppy food, goats milk, and yogurt) same as mom just mushy and more wet they did great and eat it without a problem....they are eating that 3x's a day and every 4 hours nursing I have a water bottle in the pen and I do see them drink every now and then. I weighed all of them and they range from 3.4lbs being the runt to 4.4lbs, I know mom is only 42lbs and dad is around 55-60lbs so is that normal I've seen 4 week old puppies weighing close to 6-8lbs I know they are getting everything they need mom is producing more then enough milk and they are eating all the mush up and look so swollen afterwards...Also we started pee pad training and wow Im so amazed at how these guys know where to go, we have half of their pen with blankets and toys and the other with pee pads I set them on there before and after feedings and they go on it and I see them go to it in between to do their business I really hope this sticks because this is less clean up and laundry for me, lol, my loads have been cut to half since doing this so Im sure my water and electric bill wont be as high as before . I'm giving them wormer the vet sent home with me after Gypsy's c-section, it says 1cc per 5lbs but they aren't there yet so I don't know how much to give? I guess I'll call the vet....if no one knows. The first 2 weeks was litterly hell for me as I'm such a worry bug plus being sleep deprived didn't help any ...Now I look back and am like wow that really wasn't too bad lol...plus I was recovering from the flu and it was Christmas week so we had family in from Tx visiting...But these last couple weeks have been so much fun and LESS stressful...I hate that its sooo cold here because I wanted to let them outside in our wooden fenced in yard around 5-6 weeks old...but I don't see that happening it's 25 degrees now . Would love feedback if yall have any and if yall do things differently or I should....Thanks everyone yall have been a great life line don't know what I'd do without yall and this site

    I don't know anything about raising puppies other than they are beautiful, all of them. Looks like you are doing a fantastic job. I love their markings. Beautiful litter.

    They are so cute! I would say you are right on! On the bulldog growth chart I just looked at it said puppies should weigh a pound per week old so if they are 4 weeks they should weigh around 4 lbs and I think that continues tell they are 8 to 10 weeks then they really gain weight quick. I hope that helps also if you go to a search engine and type in english bulldog growth chart it will pull up that website that explains puppies weights and has the chart.

    I love the markings. Reminds me of my puppies. I think the weight of the puppies are right on. At 4 weeks, my puppies were 5.13#, 5.0#, 6.5#, 5.6#, & 4.6#.
