Despite our instinct to want to immediately feed a puppy in trouble, warmth is far more critical than food. Cold puppies can’t nurse or digest food. Their heart rate drops, and the circulatory and respiratory systems collapse. They won’t last long under these conditions. Warming a chilled puppy too quickly can also be fatal. Puppies that have a low body temperature should be warmed slowly over a few hours to a normal temperature of about 97°F. A normal body temperature should be reached before feeding these puppies.
Within twenty-four hours being born, there core (rectal) temperature
should be 95° to 97°F Their temperature steadily increases, until at 3
weeks of age the rectal temperature is 98° to 100°F Eventually they’ll
sustain a normal temperature of 101.5°F.
Important if the puppies are piled on top of each other all the time, they are cold. If the puppies are spread far apart and panting, they are too warm. If they lay next to each other, the temperature is fine.

Incubators are usually required for around 2-3 weeks until the puppies
have begun to open their eyes and become more mobile. After this time a
whelping box and sectioned off area with no drafts should be suitable.
