AbstractThe inclusion of dogs in daily life resulted in a significant development of science in this field of veterinary medicine. Particularly susceptible to diseases are newborns, puppies and young dogs, which are not yet adequately prepared for independent living. The aim of this study was to present the most common diseases in the newborn and suckling puppies. Characteristics included neonatal asphyxia, hypothermia-hypoglycemia syndrome, hemorrhagic syndrome, toxic milk syndrome, post-natal hepatitis, umbilical infection, sepsis, mortality syndrome, viral hepatitis, leptospirosis, parvovirosis, coronavirosis, Lyme disease and ehrlichiosis. Despite the loving care of mother young puppies are exposed to many diseases and disorders when staying with their mothers. A good breeder should therefore carefully observe the behaviour and health of the newborn and suckling puppies so as to be able, in an emergency, to describe all the details to the veterinarian. Only early diagnosis, adequate treatment and appropriate prophylaxis can prevent serious consequences of the described diseases and early mortality of puppies.
