    Hi sorry this is happening to you.
    Can i ask how old is the mother and is this her first litter?.
    How old are the pups?

    My advice is contact you vet and see about getting them tube fed new born pups will fade quickly if not fed and kept warm.
    Hand feeding yourself if you have never done it before can lead to serious problems or worse death.

    Ifyou know someone whose dog has give birth that could foster the pups for you until they are old enough to be weaned that would also help.

    She sounds like a very young bitch or a maiden and does not know what she is doing.
    Most bitches know what to do, but some are just not good at it and should never be bred from.
    Also the mother will usually ignore the litter if they are ill as she will sence something is wrong and she knows that there is no chance of saving them.
    Its a natural instinct, as in the wild a dog would either kill or abandon their litter if they were sick or injured, that way any predators around will not go after the mother.

    I am so sorry things did not work out, this is a risk with breeding sometimes mother nature does what she thinks is best even though it may be wrong.

    On a side note it was nice to hear 1 survived hope she is still doing well.

    Keep smiling and next time you will be more prepared for what could go wrong.

    Again i am sorry for the loss :cry:

  6. Isolate the pups if ever the mother has pups again. Some mothers are sometimes insensitive to their babies.
