Puppy dies mystery. any advice?

A 2 day old puppy died of uncertain causes. Male pup had bruises on both lateral sides of penis. Puppy was swollen and penis appeared almost inverted. Is this a symptom of Canine Herpes virus? Please respond ASAP. What is the prognosis for the rest of the litter/ And what is my best course of action? Thanks Linda

Hi, There are no vet's here, just hobby GSD owners. Best course of action "call your vet".

Is this the dam's first litter? She might have gotten carried away when cleaning him or pulled too much on the umbilical cord. Are the other puppies gaining weight? Are you right with them?

Are you supervising her? It is possible this pup was stepped on or sat down on. I would watch her carefully, some moms are better than others at maneuvering around small puppies. My girl took 48 hours to get the hang of things.
