    URGENT HELP With 1 week old puppy.
    dutchworld posted:
    I have two 9 day old puppies (they are Mini Dachshund X Chihuahua). The mother (a Mini Dachshund) doesn't have any milk to feed the puppies. One puppy is doing well. He is gaining weight each day and is drinking from the bottle. The other puppy is not doing well at all. He is going up and down between 202-204 grams. The other puppy is 264 grams. He is being tube feed and I am giving him subcutaneous fluids. He isn't as active as the other pup but he is hanging on. My vet and I are stumped as why he is not gaining weight. If anyone has any ideas at all I would appreciate them.

    This little guy is a real fighter and I don't want to give up on him.

    Thank you
