What Vets in McKinney Say About an Older Puppy Trying to Nurse

Vets In McKinneyBringing home a new puppy is a great joy for your family and the puppy. As time goes on, you might notice that your puppy still tries to nurse. They may find the nearest blanket, knead it with their paws and suck on the blanket. Some will even fall asleep while firmly biting on the blanket.

Some dogs will do this as they get older as well. It is not uncommon to see a dog that is a few years old still trying to nurse. This usually happens because the puppy was removed from the mother too soon, or the mother weaned the dog too soon.

If this behavior worries you call your vet in McKinney for more information.
