Default Please Help

A pregnant lab bitch was found outside our house this morning. About an hour ago she gave birth to 2 pups. This bitch is not in great condition and one of the pups is making a lot of noise while the other isn't making any noise at all. We dont know wether the pups will live.

What can I do if the bitch isn't feeding them or isn't producing milk?

and lots of other questions I can't remember now.

We are getting a good food for her tomorrow what should we be looking for?

Get to a pet store and get a puppy nurser bottle and some Esbilac. They will go down hill quickly without nutrition. Keep them warm, too, especially after they eat so they can digest. They cannot maintain their own body heat at this age.
