My foster dog is unable to move her puppies
My foster dog had a litter of 8, all are now around 15oz, they were born 13 oz (BIG babies). She has really bad teeth (very painful and most of them need to be pulled) but we haven't been able to treat them because of the pups and anesthesia so she's been on a diet of soft foods and soaked kibbles. One of the pups was dragged out of the box today when she came out in a rush to get fed. She totally freaked out, cried, whined, paced, moaned, and then she put her mouth on the pup like she wanted to pick him up, he squealed, and she left him there and paced and cried until I put the pup back. Does this happen with pups that are really big because they're hard to fit in the mouth? or is it because her teeth are so painful that she's having trouble?
