puppy problems - 6 week pup cries, shakes and could be blind?
how could you tell if your puppy that is 6 weeks old is blind? and what does it mean if a 6 week old puppy shakes and cries all the time?
Puppies can be clumsy and poorly co-ordinated at first, so sometimes new owners think they are having vision problems.
It's rare for a pup to be blind, and if your puppys' eyes look okay, and he's not actually walking into walls or seems unable to see you, then chances are his vision is normal. However, if you're worried about this I'd strongly recommend having your vet examine your pup to make sure that all is well.
As for the shaking and crying, he's only 6 weeks old and should still be with his momma and siblings. If he's been taken from them and is in a new environment, this behavior is probably because he's very scared and lonely. That's normal. Again though, if you're worried, or he has any symptoms of dog illnesses, take him to your vet asap.
I'd recommend that you check out my Bringing Home A New Puppy and New Puppy Care pages as they have tons of tips and advice that will help you take proper care of your new pup.
Hope this helps, best of luck with your pup.
