Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Good morning, JACustomer.If mom is not cleaning the puppies well, the job will fall to you. You will need to clean the puppies and stimulate them to use the bathroom after every feeding. You can do this with a damp wash cloth. Make sure that each puppy is warm and dry by the end of the cleaning.Supplemental feedings are wise, but I would use a different milk supplement. You can use goat's milk, but try following a recipe like this to offer the most benefit to the puppies: http://leerburg.com/bottlefeeding.htmThe pup that is having blood coming from his anus needs to be examined. A major congenital concern could be at fault here, injury, etc. It may be more kind to humanely euthanize, if this is bad enough, than for him to wait to see if he improves. Until then, continue trying to bottle feed this pup. If mom is no longer interested in helping him, she has doubts that he will survive.
