Condition of dog after pups

by Eldon
(Fort White FL)

My pyr had 6 pups in November. She has loss weight, skin is scabby and has little apetite. She eats but she can't seem to get her strength and pep back. The pups have been weaned from her in an effort to help her. Should we give her vitamins. She seems to need a "pep" tonic!
She is only 14 months old herself. We can now see her ribs.

There is so much wrong with this situation, I won't even start....
Take this poor dog and her pups to a vet, ASAP. Do not wait.

Bitch and pups

Take your dog to the vet. She is in dire need.

As in the other comment, there is so much wrong here. Please make sure to have her spayed.

This dog is much too young to have a litter!
by: Marianne

Please take your dog to a vet and have her checked out immediately.

A dog will lose her fur while nursing because all the nutrients are going into producing milk for the puppies and the less important systems will be the first deprived.

She needs adequate food. Google 'satin balls' for a mixture to get her weight up. It is a well-known food formula among rescues and dog owners. You will have to make up the mixture yourself with raw meat and the other ingredients. This is no time to be squeamish about handling raw ingredients.

Your dog is in grave danger as other internal systems will start shutting down.

Could you please give some background as to how this young puppy became a mum, in what circumstances. Is she destined to be a working dog? What are your plans for her?

I do hope you are not planning to breed her again as she will now never again have the stamina to bring a healthy litter to term and to feed puppies.

She needs medical attention immediately or she will die.
