Chicken broth, shredded chicken, syrup or NutraCal, Where did you get him? Do you trust his breeder to help? Not sure since she gave you a pup so young. UGH also can you get puppy milk there to put on food?

This puppy needs to eat some protein every few hours. All tiny pups are prone to low blood sugar, the fact that yours has been ill has made him even more at risk. Hypoglycemia kills tiny puppies very quickly. Make sure he eats something, anything, every 3 hours at least. If he won't eat solids, maybe his throat is sore from the infection. Feed anything he will eat. Also rub some honey on his gums to up his sugar levels, but make sure he eats straight after.

This puppy is smart, i tried to cover food with the milk/paste. All he does is just like everything off the food, he doesnt bite for food but only do licking, once he licked till the solid food surfaced he stops. And one wierd behavior in him now is everytime i feed him puppy milk, he will drink for like a min, then wonders around, and i have to shift the milk again in front of him again and he will drink again, he does that for at least 3 times everytime i feed him, i am feeding him like every 4 hours but with all milk and paste. And the part of me feeding is i have to force feed the pup milk first to let it know its his fav milk then i place the bowl with milk in front of him to let him have his meal. He doesnt go sniffing for food now, if i dont do that he wont know what hes going to be eating whenever i place food in front of him. I bought this boy from a pet shop, the pet shop guy says he can help me to take care of him, but what i see from his shop is most pups are suffering from coughs and sneezes.

I would definately try some chicken broth or can chicken and some honey on his gums. He was taken from mommy way too young and might not have learned how to eat yet. You might have to force feed too

At this point, I would grind up chicken and add some rice and millk. Put him on your lap and spoon in one small teaspoon in his mouth, IF he doesn't eat. He is VERY tiny and can't eat alot at one sitting. Add some 'paste' (nutrical?) to the mixture maybe. My babies hated the paste, so take care. You have to do this every 2 hours until he can eat by himself. At night you are going to have to feed him every 3-4 hours until he can eat some type of food by himself. I'd make a gruel type of food and see how he does. Good luck with this baby. You sound like you are really trying to save him. Good luck

Still the same. This morning went crazy for the puppy formula. Drank everything that i gave him, added some yolk into it. He is coughing abit today and sounded like an old man coughing. Gave him a scratch on the neck and he seem to enjoy it.
