Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
JACustomer, your best bet at this point is going to be having this puppy examined. A vet will be able to tell you if there is anything wrong structurally with the puppy keeping him from eating. We often see this in puppies with cleft palates, for example, which make attachment to the nipple impossible and what milk does come in can be aspirated. With this, these puppies often require hand feeding or tube feeding from the owner and around the clock care to keep them alive. Without being able to nurse, this puppy will wane and eventually will pass away so acting quickly would be most ideal.If you need help finding a clinic that can see your puppy today, please post back your city, state and zipcode.
