hello, my friends had a litter of puppies and they are 4 weeks and 2 days old. yesterday they saw that their mother dog would not feed the puppies. well today they realized the mother dog had dried up COMPLETELY!
2 of the puppies will eat mushy food but the other 3 will not touch it.
they also tried puppy formula and plain water.
we dont know what to do!
we called the emergancy vet and they said puppy formula and 3 of them wont have anything to do with it!
their nose are dry and im afaird they are going to die! pleasee please help us!
Are you bottle feeding the 3, or just putting the milk out? You have to bottle feed them if they will not touch the puppy mush. If that doesn't work you might have to have the vet teach you how to tube feed.
hey we were using a bottle and a stringe but the 3 still did not want to take it. We went online and read somewhere that said if you mix puppy food with cottage cheese that it can stimulate the mother to make more milk..and it worked!
We took her to the vet before the food and after and the vet said that we were right and that it had worked!
but she still does not like to feed them so we have to lock her into the cage. But its working. So as long as the puppies are good and health i honestly dont care what we would have had to do to get them health haha. But thanks to everyone who responded.
ill keep you guys updated. and up load some pictures soon!:)
