    Kiera is not cleaning the poo off the puppies, what should we do?

    she is stimulating them, but not cleaning, what can I use to clean them ?

    how can I encourage Kiera to do it?

    book of bitch says it maybe her tongue sore from cleaning up whelping fluid and to try sunflower oil

    Are you seeing poo?

    It could be that her tongue is sore, just cooton wool with warm water
    is all you should use on the pups, try the oil or something similar, but that is really only used if the bitch isn't stimulating the pups!
    It is all new to Kiera, I am sure she'll get there x x x
