Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you 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:

Which medications is she on?

Metronidazole, clausepting and metacam
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. B., Veterinarian replied 5 months ago

Hello again,

Unfortunately, two of the drugs that Bonnie is on --the Metronidazole and Metacam-- are not considered safe during lactation. If she was only on the Clavaseptin that would be safe for them to keep nursing. But in this instance if she needs to be on those other two then we'd want to be bottle feeding the puppies until she finishes the course to avoid any issues for them.

Kind regards,

Dr. B
