    Sooooo frustrated!!!!! Think I'm fixing to lose another male!!!! Belly bloated and very lethargic. Gave enema and tube fed pedeolite but if stomach twisted with bloat it's a done deal. Just sux to be so close to 3 weeks.

    Sorry you lost the puppy. I remember when I hand raised my litter, switching from tube feeding to bottle feeding around two weeks (because they thrashed so much the tube kept getting pulled out) was scary. If we cut the nipples enough for them to actually get some formula, they got it so fast it would come out their nose. I did not lose any after that, fortunately, but I lost two before. My vet and the emergency vet (whom I got to know really well during that time) thought that only losing two was outstanding. I was very sad about each one, though.

    When I started giving them pans of food it was an incredible mess. I confined them and the mess in kiddie pools. From then it was a short time until I began getting some sleep. Good thing as I did some hallucinating from the lack of sleep.

    I had a problem with the puppies' sucking each other's genitals. I didn't at first know why they were inflamed. The vet advised that could lead to a UTI so I ended up separating the puppies, each in his or her own cardboard box or laundry basket. I did lots and lots and lots of laundry! I hope you aren't having this particular problem. Maybe having access to your Beagle will help (give them something appropriate to suck on).

    Oh, no, bad timing.

    Sorry another is in trouble. Are you certain that they're all keeping warm enough? My understanding is that two things lead to pneumonia: chilling and aspiration. Does your vet have any suggestions?

    Here we go again!!!! At 3 weeks 1 day old. One male was on deths door last night. Think it aspirated some milk at some point an got infiltrated. We I'd everything we could to keep pup live till vet could see it. Gave it berthing treatment which helped but when you took him off he went back in distress. We gave fluids sub q. Finally got to vet and sure enough right side had infiltrate. He tapped it nd got off 30 ml of fluid. Called me 4 hours later after some lasix and said pup had just eaten bowel of food that he would be fine now with antibiotics and lasix. Myself and others that help have had a LOT of time invested in these pups so we were going down fighting.!!!! Hope to put new pics on but have been a little busy. Keep praying for them. Angels let this one stay for now.

    Lil fella is just behind now and not sure if he will make it. He is back weak again and would not eat gruel formula only some from bottle but I'm afraid that is what got him in this mess. Next day will tell. Sad... But I'm trying.
