Q. I have a 3 week old pup that has aspirated some milk and is acting lethargic, vomiting, etc. Any advice?
I have a three week old English bulldog that has aspirated some milk and is acting lethargic, vomiting, etc. I was wondering if you had any suggestions on what to do for this poor puppy at home? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I have been feeding all my puppies the formula that is on your website and it has done wonders.

A. I would recommend getting this pup to a vet, aspiration pneumonia can be fatal. I wouldn’t try to treat this at home if he was my pup.

Good luck with the puppy!

Feeding tube is 16 inches long (41cm) and approximately 3/32 inches (2.7mm) outside diameter. It is best to store your feeding tube and syringe at normal room temperature. In colder temperatures the feeding tube will become rigid and stiff. At body temperature, the tube becomes softer, resilient, and completely flexible. Syringe is 35cc and attaches to the integral funnel end of the feeding tube. The opposite end of the feeding tube has a closed rounded tip with 2 side port 'eyes'.
