what's wrong with these puppies?
MY PIT BULL HAD HER SECOND LITTER OF PUPPIES THE FIRST LITTER SHE HAD 12 AND THEY ALL DIED FIRST THEY STARTED GETTING SKINNY THEN THEIR GUMS WOULD TURN WHITE THEN THEY WOULD LOSE THEIR BODY HEAT AND THEY WOULD CRY IN PAIN AND THEN THEY ALL DIED.
WELL NOW 3 OF THE 12 THAT SHE JUST HAD HAVE DIED THE SAME WAY WHAT COULD THIS POSSIBLY BE DYING FROM?
This is a situation that needs veterinary attention! If ALL of the previous puppies died, and now this litter is losing pups, you need professional help and right away.
What you describe sounds like 'fading puppy' syndrome, and often most of the symptoms result from the pups not getting adequate nutrition, leading to loss of weight and body heat... after that they simply can't recover by themselves.
There could be a genetic component here, or something infectious, or it could be that the momma doesn't have milk or it's tainted in some way. The only thing to do is to get a vets' help immediately so that the remaining puppies have a fighting chance. Please do that today.
I wish you the very best of luck and hope that the rest of the puppies survive.
