10 day old puppy not moving his leg
Hi! My walker had puppies nine days ago.
They all died except one and now I noticed he isn't moving one back leg, but he has been using it in previous days.
Do you know what could be wrong or why?
I'm sorry to hear about your puppies, but unfortunately there's just no way I can tell what's wrong with the remaining puppy.
If 8 out of 9 new born puppies died, either there was a congenital problem affecting them, the momma didn't have enough milk or rejected them, or there's some type of infectious illness involved. I'm not sure if you know why they died or not.
This little guy needs to be seen by a veterinarian right away. Only a professional evaluation will be able to tell you what's wrong, and I'd recommend having him examined asap.
Hopefully whatever it is can be treated and he will be able to grow up healthy. I wish I could help more, but this is one for the professionals. Best of luck.
