Hi Sylvia! Happy New Years. The best thing you can do at home for this little one right now is to keep him warm and on a quiet area for rest. Could he be a bit bloated from over eating? Some can pig out pretty good and get a distended abdomen and get uncomfortable from that. It is good that those stools are passing as that hopefully means no constipation is present. Hopefully he'll start to settle down here soon.
Warmth is always good in these situations. You can place a little kayro syrup on his gums to try and get a little extra glucose into him to help if his blood sugar is a little low.
I'm currently at work and I have a couple cases I'm dealing with. I'm hoping for the best here!
I'm very sorry that this little one passed. I wish I would have pushed hard to get her seen. The tough thing is with these little ones that are this critical is that the treatment options are limited based on their size. Supportive fluids, warmth and possible antibiotics would have been a baseline supportive care. Could mom have stepped on him? Hopefully everyone else in the litter stays healthy.
