I Have A 3 Week Old Miniature Doberman. The Mom Died And I Need To Know If I Can Feed Her Anything Other Than Milk And Should She Be Pooping.

Your young puppy must not be drinking milk. It is too high in lactose. Your pup should be on a proper puppy formula. If your pup is not yet going to the washroom on his own you must wipe him with a soft cloth in this area to stimulate him to go. Mom would lick the area to do this. What did mom die from and has this little one been checked over by a vet.

Where are the other puppies? I'm guessing that they were all still with mom when she died, as they are only 3 weeks.
