because she has left over weight from having her babies so she cant eat until the weight goes away
Standard dog food would be difficult for puppies to eat and digest but it is not 'bad' for them in the sense that it is poison.
DEFINITELY NOT. Well, that would actually depend on the circumstances. A well civilized dog with a nice home and owner, would definitely NOT eat her puppies. But a unhealthy, flea infested, rib showing, starving dog who just had puppies on the street MIGHT, just might, eat her puppies. But most likely the mother would scavenge for other food to keep her AND her pups alive.
Probaly because she does not want another dog's puppies to eat,bully,or kill her own.
Mother dogs do not normally eat their puppies when they are born. If a mother dog does eat her puppy, it is usually because the dog had died.
no they mate with another dog
I have had dogs my whole life with many being bred, and have never seen a dog eat her puppies.
If the some of the puppies are stillborn, the mother may eat any them. If there are no stillborns, nothing will eat the puppies. ~
My opinion would be that they just are hyper puppies. As they get older they relax mroe.
i think they eat/drink their mom's milk
It is common for a dog to eat the placenta of the puppies after she gives birth. On rare occasions, a dog will eat her puppies when they die or right before death because she instinctively knows that there is something wrong.
no they do not...im a dog lover
about 9 months
uh...when their an adult
because they were hungry?
Usually the first sign is she will not eat. She will start to nest a couple of days before hand. The day of labor she can shake, pace around and refuse food for sure.
Well it really isn't possible for a mom dog to eat her puppies but a way is to keep them in separate cages.
so that the puppies wont eat and get sick.But this will only happen when the pups are very little as they get older and mature the mom wont eat her puppies poop and pee
AnswerIn some cases the mother dog will eat her pups if they are either sick or if her maternal instinct tells her they won't do well. This helps insure the "survival of the fittest."
a dog will only eat her puppies if she feels like she is not ready for puppies after the first one you should be fine but still keep an eye on them for the first few days
dog and puppy food available at your local store they usually have a specific type for puppies
it depends on how hungry they are.

Yes, but it depends on what type of puppy you have.
