Don't know how to get the female interested again, but my wife and I have Hand Fed and raised 4-5 litter in our lives for various reasons. cooter

Call a breeder in your area or your Veterinary might be able to give you some sound advice. Good luck, hope everything works out. :thumbsup:

how big is the litter? what age? like cooter says, you can hand feed them if necessary. if it's a larger litter, split it up and give her plenty of rest/food/water/etc. between feedings. if it's an older litter, she may be starting the natural weening process. hth!

Call your vet! Like shrp said though she could be weening them off. If they are older, start feeling in their mouths for teeth. They'll usually suck for a short time after they start coming in.

Were? I hope they are still in the present tenths. Hope all is going well and their mother has turned things around.

hope all is still going well with the pups. did you have the mom checked for mastitis?? my yellow lab had pups this last winter and i knoticed she wasnt feeding them as much anymore. she was also a bit listliss and panting a lot. i noticed that one of her teats was engorged and very hot. being a mom i know what this is like and it is hell. anyway i pup a pup on the teat and held her down while it nursed. she growled and tried to get up but after a few more times it started to get better. good luck and i hope all continues well !!
love the girl , love her Chessie!
