Tube Feeding Cavalier Puppies
We had to for a number of events so we felt that it would help to present a short video
on our experiences and technique to help other better understand and to be les afraid of the concept.
This is our own technique and is not intended to replace the advice of your own veterinarian.
The 6 minute video is available in several formats
We use our office postage scale (Capacity up to 2 lbs.) with a little basket on it.

The other question that has come up is a source for the red rubbe rSherwood Sovereign Feeding tubes.
We get ours from our veterinary supplier (sometimes it's good to be the vet) and have seen them online
They are made by Sherwood and are Sovereign Catheters - we use the 5 FR (French is a size measurement) for the littlest puppies and move up to 8 or 12 FR for the bigger breeds.
