it has been almost 2 weeks since the puppys have been here. it has been fun having them in the house. how they have changed in just 2 weeks. we where told to count on having 2,4 at the most,we got 6. 4 black&tan males,1 choclate male, and 1 chocolate female, yes thats 6 pups in all.all of you will like to hear i talked to my vet and he said that even thro it is safe to dock the tails yourself he whould like if i brout them in and im going to ,how can i do it i dont have the heart to.
The tails must be done at 3-5 days old. Any older and the nerve endings have already grown up the tail, and bone has began to harden. Anything after the first week is considered a surgical procedure . I am surprised your vet didnt tell you this! Did he know the age of the pups when you talked to him. @ weeks is too old, you missed the iwndow, you'll just have cute tailed babies!
