And I did see a mention that you should be burping them????? Does the Mommy dog usually burp her puppies? Maybe because its bottle feeding? Maybe this would help the gassy one?

If you bottle-feed, you will need to burp the puppy by firmly rubbing their back and sides (up and down) or by gently but firmly patting the back or sides. However, that said, even puppies that are tube fed or ones that nurse naturally may sometimes need to be burped!
Nancy...hang in ther honey you're doing a great job!!!!
and burp the puppies like you did when your kids were little.
Trying

I cant get them to burp!! omg,if it isnt one thing its something else
OK Nancy try rubing upwards....keep doing it ...can take up to a half hour ok??? just hang in there....we're here for you
Hi Nancy, sorry I missed this post, how's it going this morning? The liver broth that Jac mentioned has worked wonders for fading puppies, I don't know if it would do anything for gassy pups. You take beef liver and boil it for 5 minutes and then throw away the liver. Take the broth and feed it to the puppy, I can't remember exactly how much, how often but if you want to try it, I know Gracie Lou has the whole recipe and the dosage. I hope things are looking up this morning :) Hugs to you and your puppies.
Thanks

No , they all have very very loose stools, due to the feedings i guess,
we are introducing ceral this am, mixed with pup food, hopefully they will firm up soon, i need to get this diarreha under control though,
