Help! Orphaned pup has not eaten for more than a day!!

Post by Katedt on Sun 12 Nov 2017, 9:55 pm

I got him Saturday night and he hasn’t eaten a thing since. I thought it might be bloat, so I spend at least 10 minutes each attempted feeding rubbing his tummy. This last time I did that, I poop came out of him as I moved my finger down his stomach. It was like popping a sit in a weird way. But anyways, he has a puppy formula diluted with 3 times the amount of water you’re supposed to do for dogs (I tried two times but he wouldn’t go for that either) and I use a very small, clean paintbrush to feed. I often drop a tiny bit on his lips to see if he would prefer that over sucking the paintbrush, but it sits on his lips until I wipe it off. I’m surprised he has lived this long but I don’t think my luck will last much longer if I can’t get a drop of food in the pup.. what do I do?

He seems to be very young, he is extremely tiny and still deaf. My guess would be just one or two days old, but I’m no pro.

I'm sorry to hear and that I didn't get back to you. Thank you for giving him a warm and caring place to rest until his end. Often babies that young won't make it for one reason or another. We can do our very best, but we're just not momma mice. I hope you're okay. Good vibes

For future reference, here's some detailed orphan care info. Scroll to the hand raising section:
