Nancy, this sounds funny, but Lexie was our first mother...and when Bayley (her sister) had a litter, one pup was acting like that, very big tummy, groaning, uncomfortable...the mother did her cleaning thing...but no relief. One evening while watching television, we took the pup out and I had him on my lap...Lexie came right over and started licking and licking and licking him...she licked him for about a half hour...when she was finished, his tummy was normal and he felt good!
Does the mama lick the pups enough to get them going? If not, do you have a more experienced mother dog that you would trust to help out?
I am sorry that you are going through this...please keep us posted.
Maybe the pups are allergic to the milk, even goats milk...what about trying that liver water stuff they talk about on the breeder's forum?
