Hello and thank you for asking your question. My name is***** will try to help.
Are you bottle feeding Fannie with puppy milk replacer?
Ok that sounds good. Fannie is not going to start producing milk so you will have to bottle feed the pup every 3-4 hours.
What can I help you with today?
I am hoping once you start feeding him with the milk replacer then his weight will go up. If he does not gain in 48 hours then he should be checked by a vet in person.
You could also take him to a vet today and a vet could make sure he does not have an underlying health issue and run a fecal test to make sure he does not have gastrointestinal parasites that are taking up the nutrients when he eats.
