I would check his mouth for a cleft palet.Turn yr hand and check the top,inside of the mouth with yr finger,if there is a space than you have a cleft palet.My best advice would be to take him,again to the vet,to see what could be wrong..

ermmmm call the vet up? they wont charge you for advice over the phone, about how much/how often to feed the ill puppy. i dont think u have to worry about overfeeding - dont you just feed at that age on demand? sorry i cant be of any help.

I'm surprised your vet didn't tell you how to supplement the mothers milk.

If the litter is too large or the mother doesn't have enough milk, you'll need to get a puppy replacement formula such as Esbilac and feed them from a bottle or eye dropper. Guidelines of how much to feed will be on the can.

If she has enough milk and the litter isn't too large you may just need to watch closely and see that every puppy has an equal opportunity to nurse. If you see any that are being pushed aside, assist them in finding and holding onto a nipple.

Are you keeping the puppies warm enough and providing unlimited water and feeding the mother enough to assist her in maximum milk production? She should be eating just about double what she would be when she isn't pregnant or nursing. A good puppy chow will also provide her with the extra nutrients and calcium that she needs while nursing.

Weighing the puppies will also give you an idea of the ones that aren't getting enough to eat. They should be gaining from 2 to 6 ounces a day at this point.

Sounds like fading puppy syndrome.

bigfilly79 I successfully hand reared a litter of 8 Old English Sheepdog puppies quite a few years ago. The mum hadn't any milk to feed them. I was unable to get proper puppy milk to start with so I used a babies formular, mixed for new born babies, as soon as I could I got puppy formular and bottle fed them (I used a babies bottle) around the clock for 10 days. You sense if their having too much, you can pick out the greedy ones, their little tummies get quite tight! I feed them to my own agenda and my own time-table, I think you come to understand their needs and work to them. I wish you well and good luck with them annd their mum

this sounds alot like what happened to my dog riken's, brother, my female sable had 2 pups there was riken and another, he had the same symptoms but he also had diahrea and vomitting, the vet said it was liver failure, and the other pup did not survive but riken tuned out healthy and has been with me since....

are your pups inside or outside? if they are outside it may be a virus or diseasecarried by the mother dog to them such as parvo or the like....i would take all the pups into the vet to get them examined asap.

I suggest you get all the pups & mom back into the vet ASAP. You've received some good advice here; however, I think your first order of business should be to get all the pups back into the vet's office & make sure they're all properly hydrated & check for other possibilities.
