selzer I used to use Evangers. They had just chicken and well-water vacuum packed, reasonable price.

I stopped though when they were cheating on their light bill.

I figured if they would cheat in one area, well they would probably cheat in others.

Wellness has good canned food, but it is costly.

Onelove8981 Right after I asked the question she wanted to go out so I let her out and she went and used the restroom and then drank a ton of water I guess she just didn't like the normal size water bowl she want to drink from her giant trough! Lol she looks great thanks for the advice!

Her diet right now I have been give her pressure cooked chicken breasts, eggs, and yogurt mixed with a little bit of her regular puppy food.

Sue: could you message me a picture of that food?? So I can possibly look for it. We don't have a tractor supply company. But we do have a couple feed stores.

Oh, I couldn't agree more! I myself, had a older puppy that went the the vet for eye surgery and came home with parvo. Cost me an arm and a leg and nearly the life of my puppy.

But the OP's vet makes house calls. He/she has already seen the bitch and pups. No doubt he/she would be willing to speak with the OP on the phone.

It's a very dangerous game to play, seeking medical advice for a young bitch who is barely drinking water, on the internet. Not a game I'd gamble my bitch's life with.

But, I suspect the OP has already called her vet.

Yes, when it is necessary, when there is a puppy stuck, when the bitch is running a fever, when they need a c-section, we have to go to the clinic, no way around it. It is a little like Russian Roulette though. Remember that hospitals have some of the worst infectuous agents in them. People take sick animals to vets, and a dam and her pups are extremely vulnerable.

Definitely, if you have a question, ask, call the vet, sure, but have all the vital statistics, ready so that the vet can make the best decision as to whether or not to bring her in and subject her to the environment at the vet clinic.

There is NOTHING more terrifying than hearing the vet talking to the person in the next room about parvo, while you are sitting there with a dam and a basket of puppies.
