The 'discharge' was on the puppy at birth - see question: What is the cause of a yellow discharge on a newborn puppy?
http://spoiledmaltese.com/forum/52-maltese-health-behavior/216970-newborn-puppy-yellow-discharge.html - You can see an image here....
This puppy was either the 1st or 2nd one. All three puppies that were alive had the same.
Litter of 4. One died or was stillborn at birth. Two others have passed away at aprox 30 hours after birth.
Limited. The puppy has not been successful in sucking any milk. We are syringe feeding but the puppy is not gaining any weight other than on day 1.
So saying the Pups are Jaundiced is wrong...?
I have an image, can I upload it?
Is there any way of knowing why or what caused the Pups to be stressed? I presume this stress causes a weakness. The surviving pup is 95 grams and is the same now as yesterday, some 36 hours ago.... which is not good... I am doing my best to save this puppy.... NB: The other two passed away without any warning on day 2 having been cleared by the local vet as OK. Three of the pups had the placenta coming from the mother first....
