Litter AO Update: 1 Week Weighing

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Litter AO is now one week old.  This litter arrived with 8 kits.  Unfortunately, one kit passed away at 3 days of age.  The litter also included an extremely small runt that while still alive at 3 days of age looked like it had been losing the battle for nipples during the nursing sessions.  We made the decision to cull the runt since it did not look like it would make it for much longer.  The remaining 6 kits are all doing well.  The one week milestone is one that we very much look forward to since kit mortality is almost non-existent after the first week.  At one week of age we like to see all kits weighing at least 0.25 pounds.  The following are the kits weight in pounds: 0.34, 0.31, 0.28, 0.28, 0.28, 0.25.
