My female Golden Retriever just had a litter of 8 puppies. This is my first litter and might I say everything went very good. I have one puppy who is the runt and the 2nd day after he was born I found him sounding very congested, he does eat very aggresivly and sometimes you can see the milk come out his nose just a little. Of course I called my vet and I was told that he probably just is drinking to fast and asperated milk. Well of course this went on for a week and I couldn't take it anymore and insisted that I bring him in to be checked. Vet said that lungs sounded fine and puppy does not have cleft pallet, also put him on antibiotic for possible infection. Puppy is now 5 wks old but is still congested sounding. He is active and continues to eat & gain atleast a 1/2 pd a wk. Could someone please let me know if they have ever experienced this w/a puppy. Please if you don't have anything positive to say please do not respond.
