• My dog recently had puppies, I noticed this weekend that both puppies are now walking on what I am assuming is their wrist. they are a lot smaller than the other puppies ( half the size) what is the best way to treat this or is this something to do with their size?

    Hi Miriah,
    I recommend that you take mom and the puppies into see a veterinarian as soon as possible. This is not normal for puppies and can be a sign of an underlying physical issue. This combined with them being smaller than the other is very concerning. Your vet can talk to you about the cause of these symptoms and the treatment the puppies need after they have examined them.
