It's advised to use a different tube for each puppy you are feeding

When a newborn puppies gastrointestinal (GI) tract is functioning but they are unable to get the required nutritional needs gavage (tube feeding) is an option that many dog breeders use. The feeding tube is generally inserted through the mouth and passed down the throat and finally into the stomach. We advise that you always double check the process before feeding by using a PH strip so you can check tube placement.  Once the tubes in place draw up a small amount of fluid from the tube with a syringe. Test the fluid with pH paper to determine the acidity of the fluid.

*** Please ask your veterinarian for advice and guidance, while this is a simple procedure, it's vital that you learn to do it right and your vet is the best person to teach you. Next time you'ré at the vets ask them to go through the procedure with you, so if you ever need to gavage, you'll know just what to do.

Handy Tip

Feeding Tube Sizes are based on the outer diameter of the gavage tube and is measured in French units (1 Fr = 0.333mm)  

6 Fr = 2mm

8 Fr = 2.66666666667 mm
