Hello and thank you for using this site to help you. I see this came in last night and I am sorry no one was able to answer you sooner.

Usually with new born puppies to help them eliminate you take a warm washcloth and keep massaging the abdomen area. Start from the belly button and move in one direction toward the anus. Mother dogs will often lick their pups that way to stimulate movements.
