Is It Just Coincidence or What?

If you have read my previous discussion, Life After Death, I mentioned that we lost 4 dogs out of our 9 dogs at home this month. We still have 5 that are struggling to survive. One of our dogs gave birth to 9 puppies, and 4 puppies already died. We still have 5 but they are also struggling since the mother dog is already getting weaker. I am not sure if they will survive. Now I am thinking, is it just coincidence or it is destined to happen?

I'm hoping the puppies will survive. Have you taken your dog to the veterinary?

No, we don't have a vet in my hometown. I am afraid we will lose all our dogs plus the puppies.

@brokenbee _ I also have dogs at home and I'm sorry to hear about your dog's condition. Giving birth to 9 puppies must have taken a toll on the mother's health. Are there stores carrying animal feeds in your hometown, they might also have veterinary medicines and you could ask for advice or maybe they know someone who has experience in animal husbandry

@josie_ Hmmm She was already weak before she gave birth like the other dogs. I don't think they will make it... The puppies were no longer nursed by the mother dog. I tried to give them milk this evening and they were too hungry. I just made an improvised feeding bottle for them since we don't have pet feeding bottles or syringe.

so, how are the newborn puppies and their mother now, hija? hope they all survived the 1st (or 2nd) 24 hours of life outside their mother's womb.

Some were still alive last night Ate. I just don't know right now. I still haven't gone out of the house. The mother dog was still weak. =(

@brokenbee maybe the puppies are premature?

@ridingbet Hmmm I am not sure Ate.. But maybe they were no longer able to get milk from the mother because the mother was no longer eating at that time...

Why are they dying? What's wrong with them?

We are still unsure but we suspect they had eaten something that's bad for them. It's hard to blame someone because we don't have an evidence.

If the mother dog survives you need to get her spayed...

I am not sure if she can survive. She's getting weaker now.

I think without the care of a veterinarian, it is destined to happen.

I am so sorry, if your dog was already sick, giving birth has been hard for her. Can you bring the puppies to a vet?
