I have a 5 week old min pin who isn't eating much and sleeps

Customer Question

I have a 5 week old min pin who isn't eating much and sleeps a lot. When he is asleep he shakes badly and I don't know what to do to help him. I just got him yesterday and room him to a vet for a wellness check but I can't call the vet until tomorrow to ask about this problem. But I'm worried for my puppy so I would love an answer soon please. I know he's too early to be away from his momma but the owners wouldn't keep him or any other puppies longer.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

What are you feeding him?

Any retching, gagging, vomiting, or lip licking?

What do his stools look like?

Are his gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?

Was he wormed before you got him?

Hi Heather,
I'm just following up on our conversation about Rocky. How is everything going?
