Resumo

The present study aims to approach the neonatal triad, taking into consideration its components that are corresponded by dehydration, hypothermia and hypoglycemia, and to evidence the clinical signs of each alteration, obtained through physical examination of the newborn, facilitating the diagnosis. However, the Veterinarian when attending a newborn should take into consideration the unique physiology of this phase and the specific requirements of a newborn, bearing in mind that 75% of neonatal deaths occur in the first three weeks of life and therefore it is important to reproduce in the best possible way the necessary care for the return of homeostasis of the individual, which includes thermoregulation and room humidity, rehydration and proper nutrition.
