This will be long so bear with me. We had bulldog pups a week ago today. So far they are doing well. Yesteday one of the girls was a little "fussy" She coninuted to fuss off and on but was eating ok-not quite as greedy as before but still filling her belly. In the middle of the night she really started crying and her tummy was a little bloaty. I tried to make her poo but she did not need to or would not. She refused to eat at the 4 pm feeding so I figured we would take her to the vet in the am. In the past we have had this same situation and taken them to the vet. The vet will usually put them on an anitbiotic but they don't have temps and they usually dont' get better. I have also searched fadeing puppy on the internet. In the past they usually just fade away. Sometimes they will cry non stop, then die. The vets have said well, maybe they were not right on the inside. I also give them some ringers sub q, if they appear dehydrated. This morning I was decideing to take the little one to the vet, I set them up to eat before I would leave and she is eating ok and seemed not as bloaty or have a "firm" belly. I did not notice a poo but have encouraged mom to keep the babies clean on the south end. Just wondered if anyone else breeds pups and has had this happen to them? This is not genetic as far as my reading had shown. I have since talked to my son(he is the puppy sitter as I have to be at work) and her next feeing went ok as well. Another questions? Some of thier poos seem a little firm. Can I give them like a drop of corn syrup? Our doctor had us give that to our infant son when he had hard poos. They are nursing from mom-no puppy replacer given. They are going potty a lot. Thanks for listening. I know there are more pressing problems out there on the board these last few days and this sounds kinda trivial, but all you guys have so much knowledge and was hopeing someone may have something to share.
