    I'm sorry I can't offer any advice as I'm not familiar with puppies that young, so I have no idea how to help you. Just wanted to congratulate you on your new puppies, and send my thoughts and prayers your way that you find a way to help them, and they are able to poop. I'm sure someone on here who is a breeder and has experience with this will come around and help you soon. Good luck.

    @gypsymommy take a small syringe and fill it with 2 cc of warm water. Insert the syringe in the puppies behind and insert the water and that should help. The water helps to loosen the stools. Good luck.

    Congrats on your new litter. Sleep deprived yet? Lol. My girl had a litter of 5 puppies and they're 7 weeks. Good luck!

    I would try the water thing as noted above! That sounds like it would work! Please keep us updated on how it goes!

    Ok will do that and let y'all know how it goes....I have prepared myself a year before we decided to breed her and I guess you can never be 100% prepared. :/ Thanks

    And yes my hubby and I are very sleep deprived but it's all worth it when Im up at 2am with these sweet babies, The mom is a great mom just wish she would clean them but I know her under bite is too big to allow her too....Also is what Im putting in the moms puppy food any good? I read it was, but is that's what causing the puppies not to poop?

    My girl did not stimulate the puppies until they were about a week old. She would not stimulate their butts though. I had to make em go. She tried a few times but just couldn't get passed the smell i guess. Keep us posted!

    Do not depend on mom to do it, you must stimulate the pups every time they wake up and before feeding. Just keep trying to stimulate them, to make them poop.
