He has worms, he needs to go to the vet to get dewormed. Here it costs 12 dollars.
He needs to be dewormed and still be on the tit. It needs to eat a lot more often. It is going to die. Poor thing, I hope your friend doesn't have children that she can also starve/neglect to death.
The reason his gums are light is because the worms are sucking him dry..If he doesn't get treatment it can kill him..
The puppy shouldn't even be away from its mom yet!!! They should not be taken from their moms until anywhere from 8 weeks to 12 weeks! She needs to get it to the vet immediately worms in stool are not normal I am sure you know that. It sounds like puppy has parvo :( It will die!!! I will open this can of worms but we have bred our boxer twice and that is in humane and not normal at all. Also I do not understand who would sell a puppy at 5 weeks!!! They clearly did not care!!!
Worms are killing the puppy.
Can buy dewormer at pets mart if your friends is too cheap to take it to a vet. Pale gums are a bad sign.
Diarrhea is bad bad news. Could be parvo, given the age.
Worms are normal, but need to be treated.
5weeks is way to young to be away from mom.
Baby needs to be fed 3-5 times a day. Soft food mixed with some hard food, and still getting some formula.
ETA-Pale gums mean it has low blood volume. She needs to take baby to the vet and if she cannot afford it, give the puppy up and not get another one until she learns proper care of them.
