Our question this week was:

When do puppies open their eyes?

Jamie Stokes


Answer

Hi Jamie– thanks for your email. Your question was – when do puppies open their eyes?

The answer is - Pups are born blind with their eyelids sealed shut. By the time they are 2 weeks old, the eyelids are open and the puppy begins developing his vision.

An article that might be helpful to you is Developmental Milestones in the Puppy. Another one that you might like is What to Expect in Your Puppies First 8 Weeks.

Best of luck!
