The New Book of the Dog, Vol. 2 : A Comprehensive Natural History of British Dogs and Their Foreign Relatives, with Chapters on Law, Breeding, Kennel Management, and Veterinary Treatment (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The New Book of the Dog, Vol. 2: A Comprehensive Natural History of British Dogs and Their Foreign Relatives, With Chapters on Law, Breeding, Kennel Management, and Veterinary Treatment It is not within the province of this chapter to give minute directions for rearing puppies, but I may just mention a few points for the benefit of novices. The main point I would lay stress upon is that to rear Dachshund puppies success fully you must not overload them with fat - give them strengthening food that does not lay on flesh. Lean, raw beef, finely chopped, is an excellent food once or twice a day for the first few months, and, though this comes expensive, it pays in the end. Raw meat is supposed to cause worm troubles, but these pests are also found where meat is not given, and in any case a puppy is fortified with more strength to withstand them if fed on raw meat than otherwise, and a good dosing from time to time will be all that is necessary to keep him well and happy.
