hmm she is doin great . she 50 days old now . my vet told me to start pedigree puppy feed from 55 th day onwards and start giving semi solid food to stabilize her bowel . she is playful , wakes me up every morning by chewing my ear and barking . i let her sleep in my room in my bed , is it a bad move ? . i hate to see a 50 day old puppy seperated from her mom sleeping alone in her dog bed . that is why i alow her to sleep in my bed . so when can i start giving her a bath ? .and thanks everyone for their concern .

Thanks for all the effort people . and mr.desi we do have all the foreign products in india . but my vet told me to feed my puppy royal canine puppy formulae .But my petshop told me to start giving her solid food like pedigree puppy so that her bowel will stabilize . she has gained 2.2 lbs from being just 4.4 lbs to 8.8 lbs in ten days . and what is the appropriate weight of a doberman pup that is 50 days old.

hmm her mother was quite big for a female doberman . and i think even my pup is quite big for her age . eventhough she was skinny when i brought her home she was quite healthy and has a frame . her paws were huge . but i dunno how being away from her mother is gonna affect her because its a normal practise in india to seperate the pup from the mother with six weeks . by the way she is doing great now very healthy good legs and shiny coat . since i am not going to show her i want her to be huge . i am supplementing her diet with calcium supplements and vitamins .

thanks for all the advice . i know that dobermans are medium sized dogs . and i shouldn accelerate her grwoth much . but i dont want her to end up a small dog . and i have another doubt , right now i allow her inside my room and everywhere inside my house . but a breeder told me that a pup shouldn be allowed in shiny and polished surface because its leg will not be straight when it grows . is it true ?

hi all . ok now my puppy is healthy and playfull , had her second set of vaccinations . now i am going to take the road less traveled yes i am going to feed my pup raw diet . after reading a lot about raw food and talking to lot of people . i have come to the conclusion . i am going to feed raw . In India where i live raw meat is much cheaper than commercial food . i have lot of butchers near my place . so i am going to start feeding her raw . ill keep you people updated on the progress .
