Or, takes in too many dogs and is therefore forced to place some with fosters who are ill-equipped to handle them. Case in point being my Susie and her litter. These poor guys traveled from Georgia to Buffalo, only to spend about a day and a half in Buffalo and then get moved again. The foster home should NEVER have been given these dogs. Her personal life was unstable at the time, and she was not equipped to handle these dogs. Here are some pics of Susie and some of her babies.
So, I was asked to take Susie and pups in, even though I have NO experience with young puppies. And I was given ZERO info on how to care for them ahead of time. Susie was loaded with hookworms and roundworms. She has been wormed once, and will be wormed again in another week or so. She is on Wellness Puppy kibble. She has watery diarrhea, and I'm not sure what to do to get rid of it. A raw diet was suggested, but I don't know if another change in diet is the best choice right now? Poor Susie is gonna be hard-pressed to put on weight when the food goes through her so quickly her body doesn't have time to absorb the nutrients. Also, her pups are around 5 weeks now, and eat both soaked kibble and canned Wellness puppy without a problem. I'm wondering if they should be weaned, as nursing can't be helping Susie either. Susie is actually going back to my vet on Friday, but I was wondering if anyone had any advice until then?
