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.

1) Where did these puppies originally come from? Shelter? Private owner?
2) Have they been examined by a vet?
3) Are they on antibiotics? If so, what is being given? How much? How often?
4) Are the pups eating well?
5) If no mom, are they being raised by hand? If so, what is being fed?
