Caring for a Runt Puppy?

We have a mother dog, mutt, who had a litter of 3 pups. She stopped feeding the runt when he was about 4 weeks old. My daughter has been softening dog food in water, feeding the pup, and has warmed regular milk, I think twice. I told her she probably shouldn't give the pup the milk, so she stopped. This morning, the pup was moaning, like it had a stomach ache and has been doing this most of the day, on and off, laying like it is really, really weak. I think it may be dying. Is there anything we can do?

Please take the pup to your vet immediately! He is so young and small and you do not know how to care for him!

If you can't afford veterinary care for your puppy, the best thing to do is surrender it to the Humane Society. They will get it the care it needs. It will be fostered by a volunteer and adopted out when it gets old enough.

If you are not able to afford a vet bill, run, don't walk to your local humane society. The puppy is in pain and suffering.

He needs to be treated immediately. While you are there find out if they have affordable options to get mama dog spayed. They usually do. Good luck.
