Aloha! You're speaking to Dr. Michael Salkin
I'm sorry that your questions weren't answered in a timely manner. I'll address them as you presented them...
pups, it's best to allow them to eat as much as they want to. Should any pup gorge itself to the point of abdominal distention, however, you'll now that that pup does need to have his intake restricted. Milk isn't necessary and might cause gastrointestinal distress in any event. These pups become lactose-intolerant quickly as they mature. I don't know the caloric density of the puppy food to which you're weaning them, but there should be directions on the food label which will guide you on how much food should be offered throughout the day.
I need you to clarify "fungus in his nose". I can understand fungus on the skin of his nose (ringworm
) but a systemic fungus inside his nose is unlikely. I also need to know which drug was prescribed, please.
Pink pee/blood in the urine (hematuria) does usually indicate a juvenile bacterial urinary tract infection (UTI). This is usually addressed with a broad spectrum antibiotic such as potentiated amoxicillin
which can be given concomitantly with an anti-fungal drug. Therapy should extend 7-10 days. This isn't a contagious infection. Puppies can be immunodeficient; in other words, their immune system isn't fully developed yet and so infections of the urinary tract and skin are relatively common at this age.
Please respond with additional information and further questions or concerns if you wish.
