Our little runt has become more “runty” over the past several days and I am beginning to wonder if we have some defects we are dealing with. He is failing to thrive now that we have moved into the weaning stage. Moving off of the constant source of for from mom is when these types of issues usually rear their ugly heads. We have been watching his book sugar levels and everything there is fine. He is also not dehydrated. What we are seeing though is concerning. Keeping him warm, fed and hydrated is our goal and so far he seems to be maintaining status quo. Separating him from his brothers and seeing his special needs will be our main focus for the unforeseeable future. Moist puppy food, our homemade formula and private quarters with a heat-padded doggy bed and blanket are just what the vet ordered!
