Thank you for being honest. I have just been to drop feed her again and she had actually got up and walked down to the paper to have a wee so i thought this was a good sign. I tried to get her to suckle off mum and she was licking her lips as i squirted some milk onto her lips but she will not suckle. I have just given her some more honey and water and wrapped her up again and she is on a heat mat but she is just lifeless again. It is breaking my heart to watch her and if the vet can help then i would obviously take her but i don't want to take her away from mum unless she can be saved.
i was trying to feed her with puppy milk formula with the srynge but she sounded like she was going to choke even though i was only putting very tiny amounts into her mouth. I was told that i could be sending the fluid directly into her lungs! is that true? also if it was an infection would she benefit more at the vets as they would give her antibiotics aswell
Does the fact that even though she is weak she still walked down from her bed to the paper to have a wee show she has some life left in her do you think? and even though i am doing all i can to help her the best place to be to stand the best chance is at the vets? i didn't want to send her there and take her away from her mum if she is going to die. I know it sounds silly but i would rather be home with me and mum if that is inevitable but if she stands a good chance of surviving i would rather her be at the vets.
Thankyou for your help. I keep seeing a glimmer of hope in her and i'm praying she survives as i will keep her with me forever if she does. I have just fed her a little more but if i don't see any sign of her suckling in the next hour i will take her to the vets and hope they can help.
Hi just to let you know i have taken my puppy to the vets and she is now on a drip and beeing fed through her tummy so we will see how she is in the next 24 hours and follow whatever course of action they adivise me to take. Thankyou for your help
