Our expert says:
The mother should be fed a high-quality commercial diet, in about twice as much as she would normally consume. To achieve this, she can be fed three to four times per day. Adding milk as fine as long as it does not cause diarrhoea. The puppies will cry a lot if they are not feeding adequately, and will not gain weight. If that is the case, they must be bottle fed. Your vet will be able to help you with proper commercial puppy milk and the bottle to feed them if necessary.
