How Much Weight Should A Newborn Japanese Chin Gain Per Day?
When we have a litter, we weigh our puppies each day, and expect to see between 1/2 and 1 ounce of weight gain per day.
They are about the size of a gerbil when they are born, and they will quickly put on weight.
We look for them to be moving around immediately, with their eyes closed of course.
Within a week, they can usually find your hand from a small distance away by smell, and they will usually come over to explore.
By two weeks, we start to see the eyes open.
