  • take them to the doggy er right now or at least call. i was going to say they may be cold cause thats the number 1 cause of puppy demise but bleeding from the mouth is so not normal. try buying puppy formula to supplement them but like i said you seriously need to call because it may be treatable if you dont have the money ask about a payment plan and explain your situation. most times a vet will do a group visit for the cost of 1 since its more than likely they all have the same thing

  • Take them to the vet right away. If they have a disease maybe it could be treated, or worms. Poor little pups. I am sorry that this is happening and hope the remaining pups can be saved.

  • My dog did this. It was Distemper. But that was years and years ago. I would call the Vet. Poor little babies.

  • Yeah, people not spaying and neutering their pets. It kills millions a year.
