Hello Mary, I'm Dr. Deb.
I recently came online and see that your question about your puppy hasn't been answered. I'm sorry that you've had to wait for a response but if you still need assistance, I'd like to help if I can.
I do have a few questions to ask first, if you don't mind:

1. How many pups are in the litter?
2. Are you weighing them once a day at the same time of day?
3. Is she losing weight?
4. Is mom taking good care of her? Not rejecting her in other words?
5. What antibiotics were dispensed?

There may be a delay after I receive your answers since I have to type up a response to you and I may be offline at the time you respond. But I'll get back to you as soon as I can since I'm on the computer some part of every day.

Thanks for your patience. Deb
