Default New Puppy ok to bathe?

I just got a Yorkie-Poo puppy. He is 7 weeks old. Is it ok to give him a
bath? Also, his eyes water. Is there something I should be looking for?
Thanks in advance. I have been a cat person and this is my first pup. Thank
heavens the cats already like him! And its only been 3 hours.

CONGRATULATIONS on your new pup. I am sure you are in love/heaven right now.


A 7 week old pup should have a Vet check within 72 hours maximum
of bringing him home. I would certainly be considering doing that
ASAP.

As for bathing I wouldn't at least until he has seen the vet. At that
point you can ask the Vet their advice and opinion of the matter.

It is always much better to be safe than sorry. JMO

Why does he need a bath? Accidents happen that might require a bath, but
mostly a young pup won't. If you do need to then a lot of care must be
taken that the pup does not get chilled. Do not feed the puppy until it
is fully dry and warm. (This is not as big a deal for larger puppies,
but for small ones chilling the stomach area can impede digestion.)

Also, his eyes water. Is there something I should be looking for?


This is something that should definetly be checked by a vet ASAP in a
puppy that young.
