On Wednesday night/Thursday morning when I went in to check them, I found 3 seperated and when I picked them up they were really lethargic and limp, we tried everything we could but we lost 2 of them. We rushed the remaining 6 and mum to the vet as we didn't know what was happening, and we lost another 4 throughout the day there.
We picked mum and the remaining 2, 1 boy and 1 girl up that night to bring home, not expecting them to make it through the night. We have been feeding them every hour since Thursday night and they really picked up, they were putting weight on and suckling ferociously. Then this morning the little girl stopped suckling and died a couple of hours later.
We are so devasted. This is our first litter and we just don't know what to do. Is there anything we could have done to kepp them or is it just nature taking its course. Mum is very anxious and is trying to find her other pups. The vet tried to tell us that dogs can't count so wont know that there are any missing. What crap! She knows exactly what is happening, so does our other dog, who guards the pup, when mum is out having a break.
Any info you can give us would be appreciated, we are just wandering around like lost souls. It is heartbreaking
RIP little oompah loompahs, we miss you
