Ok haha I was super.scared about.it my vet.said they.Just barely made the age to give.it.to them and the mom passedd.away 4 days after birth
I think this is a reason to take the puppies to see your veterinarian. They are very young and can become seriously ill. I hope they get better soon! Diedra
Your puppies should have been wormed at 2 weeks old; then 5 weeks; then 8 weeks. The knew owners need to keep up the worming also, every 3 weeks to 16 weeks.
I’m just wondering if you wormed their mum? If you didn’t its probably why the puppies have them so badly. Worms are passed on from mother to puppy.
IMPORTANT- You need to use a very gentle wormer on puppies such as Panacur Liquid. So whatever the 25mg tablet is don’t use it!!
Sorry to hear that they lost their mum, hope you doing ok hand rearing them. They would have got worms through the placenta and the first milk they had would have eggs in it. Pleased you spoke to a vet about it and put your mind at rest. Puppies this young can become so infested with worms it can kill them. Good luck with the litter ?
PLEASE ! Get to a VET !! They can get infested with Parasites…you have to go !!
