Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
I just came online and saw your question. I am sorry you did not get help from an expert before now. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.
How is she doing now? Do you still need help with her?If you check her gums, are they pink in color, or do her gums seem pale?
Has she been tested for parasites recently, by examining a stool sample under a microscope? Most parasites are too small to be seen by the naked eye.
This is an Info Request, to help me answer your question. Rebecca
How is she doing today?
How can you tell the milk production is decreased? Are the puppies going hungry, crying to be fed?
That is not unusual for the pups to weigh the same overnight. Do you have a gram scale to be really accurate?If they are nursing, and not just crying and trying to nurse, it sounds like she is making enough milk. If you squeeze on each nipple, and milk comes out, it sounds like she is still making milk.
If you are really worried, you can supplement the pups with a puppy milk replacer and bottle feed them once or twice a day.
Good that the diarrhea is better. Diarrhea causes loss of body fluid, and that can reduce milk production temporarily but if the diarrhea has stopped, she should go back to putting her fluids from her body into the milk.
How are the puppies and your dog doing? Are the puppies putting on weight now?
