She's soo cute! On the shampoo be careful, my puppy had pretty severe reaction to several types before I found one that worked. If her coat looks dull, or she's scratching more than usual, definitely try something else!

I feel very sorry for this poor puppy. Just looking at these pictures is heartbreaking.

Poor baby. Praying for a good outcome.

I don't think it's a good idea to use the dry shampoo. Your pups immune system is not where it should be.

Did you deserve your dog today?

In your previous thread you'd mentioned using Royal Canin Babydog Milk, I know there are some members here who've raised litters and underage puppies (@Selzer ? @Sabis mom ? @carmspack ?)

Anyone have some nutritional recommendations, especially non-specialty products that are readily available in different countries?

OP, dogs smell. It is normal, please don't torture her, its pointless to try and get rid of smell completely
Now I also start to think, poor baby. You expect too much from such a little thing and I don't think she'll live up to your expectations.

About the coat, this is what my pup's coat looked like (but he is 8 weeks 2 days on the pic). Similar, no?

OP, since she's 6 weeks now, I strongly suggest you talk to a vet about immunizations. The sooner the better.

If you can get fresh goats milk, that would help her for sure.

No, your boy's coat looks a lot healthier. The color is rich and while the coat is definitely that puppy texture, it's not dull.

I really hope @selzer or someone else with experience will weigh in with some readily available strategies or products to help the OP ensure Summer is getting the nutrients she needs.

I believe that Carmspack and Selzer have already given suggestions on the nutrition side of it, as well as on other issues. I don't think the OP is really willing to take advice at this point. He/she seems to not agree with the things said about the puppy's well-being, so why bother continuing to beat a dead horse?

Wow, shocking to think the OP's puppy is the same age as our Sheba! (who by the way is still nowhere near ready to leave her Mom and siblings...) This is what a healthy one should look like.
