Helping Puppy Eliminate (go potty) Neonatal Period

Before and after every feeding gently massage the anus and the genital area with a warm moistened cotton  ball. The puppy cannot eliminate by itself during the neonatal period. The mother dog would do alot of licking to help the puppy eliminate. You take over this role by massaging gently with the moist cotton ball. Normal puppy stools  should be yellowish brown with a jam like consistency. Green stools can indicate an infection. Observe the urine and stools for the health of the pup. The urine should be pale or light yellow. If it is dark the puppy needs more feeding or it is dehydrated. Most puppies will eliminate on their own by 3 weeks of age
