Remember Your Beloved Pet
2 week old puppy not gaining weight

I have a litter of 5 puppies and the smallest has only gained a few ounces since birth. The other puppies are well over a pound now, and she is only 9 oz. She nurses well if I keep the other puppies away from the teet she is at, or pull her and the bitch out on their own. I have to be gone for work during the day, but I make sure she has a full belly in the morning and then I make sure she nurses every couple hours throught the evening. Also, the other pups are starting to open their eyes but not her. The bitch is in good health and the delivery went normal...
