I am sorry that no one was able to get to your question in a timely manner. But I just signed in online and wanted to help.

You will have to get puppy milk replacement formula for this newborn pup. Pediasure is not going to be able to be absorbed by a newborn pup and will only cause diarrhea and fluid loss. It is equivalent to trying to give a newborn baby Pediasure instead of breast milk or baby formula.

If you don't have access to a feed store or pet store right now to purchase puppy replacement formula, you can make some alternative formula mix from everyday household items. This is not meant to be used long term, but it is ok when you are in a crunch and need to feed a newborn pup something that they can digest, even if its only a little bit. Here is a website link with the inigredients you will need to make the puppy replacement meal. http://www.veterinarypartner.com/Content.plx?P=A&S=0&C=0&A=576

I wish you all the best with this newborn puppy. However, I would caution you that if a pup is not eating well from mom, then there may be a congenital defect to blame. I would get this pup examined by your local vet if she does not turn around within the next 12-24 hrs.

Is there anything else I can assist you with tonight concerning your newborn puppy?

- Dr. H
