6 day old pup very sick

734 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  lilmonster
I have a 6 day old Chihuahua/Pomerainian pup. He still has his mom but she is new to this baby thing. I have already lost one boy and the second is really constipated and I don't know how to help him. We tried the warm,wet cotton ball but nothing. His poor lil but looks swollen shut, very red and he whines all the time. His belly is hard and he is starting to stop eating. Please help..:confused:

I'd take them to a vet, before you lose any more.
Thanx I will but that is tomorrow. Was wondering if there was anything I can do tonight.
Emergency vet, that would be safer then asking for advice on the internet.

And I would also suggest not breeding anymore until you know what to do in every situation.
Yeah I have lots of knowledge on breeding and caring but I didn't have a choice in this matter. My daughter bred her and I ended up taking the mommy to be because she has no knowledge. I bred for 20 years with very very few incidents. I am not sure how the moms health was through most of her pregnancy and two of the pups were born butt first. I lost the first and the second isn't doing so well. Thank you for the advice though.
