How can I get my Maltese to let her new puppies to eat ?

My maltese just had puppies like 20 min. ago… and she wont let them nurse off of her !!And all the stores are closed so I can’[t get formula or a bottle… is there anything elts I can use for formula ?

Answer #1

She might still have another pup, too…you should have been prepared for all evetualities…it’s very possible that a first time mama might be scared or her pups, or even aggressive…sure wish people would get educated BEFORE they decided to produce a litter of pups.


Answer #2

She had them only 20 minutes ago?

Give her a little time, she’s probably just adjusting and most likely exhausted. They’ll feed soon enough.
