Did your bitches ever feed their pups?

Just curious if anyone had a bitch that regurgitated for their pups. If so, what was the bitch fed and how early did she start doing that?

Re: Did your bitches ever feed their pups?

So far, I have not seen this happen, but it is totally possible. The pirannah eat everything so fast that unless I am right there, I would never know.

Diabla has not being bred, but she regurgitated once with a litter of foster pups... her regular kibble.

I think it was an hormone rush the first time she met all of them at once, it never happened again.

I've only had one female do that. Isa started about 4 wks, she was on kibble and raw. It was still gross.

Not unusual around week 3 or 4. I think Mom is letting the pups (and owner) know it's time to wean.

Not GSDs but I did have two Shar Pei bitches that routinely did this with litters starting at about 4 wks. I usually announced it was HOT LUNCH time

I've never seen it, but since we're not watching them 24/7 doesn't mean it's never happened.

I was wondering why Kaynya was acting like she was STARVING - even though I had doubled her food - and the pups weren't showing alot of interest in the food I offered them.

Mom was taking care of ALL the feeding!!

The problem is that there's one pup I'm a little concerned about - the male. He wolfs down food then pukes it up, then eats it then pukes it and then eats it again. He's gaining and doing fine otherwise but I wanted to try getting him to slow down when eating. Problem is that Mom sees fit to urp for them whenever she wants!

We are now separating them at night so at least in the morning I can supervise his eating.
