Customer Question
I have 12 day...

I have 12 day old whippet puppies. All was going well until today. One is holding her head up, making a barking sound, short fast breathing, seems pale compared to others. She does not want to nurse. She seemed a bit bloated so I gave her a water enema and she had normal bowel movement when stimulated.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the dog's name?

I have 12 day old whippet puppies. All was going well until today. One is holding her head up, making a barking sound, short fast breathing, seems pale compared to others. She does not want to nurse. She seemed a bit bloated so I gave her a water enema and she had normal bowel movement when stimulated.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the puppy?

I don’t think so...she has been gaining approx 2-4 oz a day as the others. There are 6 in the litter.
