Her nipples feel warm, but not burning. Maxine herself is fine ... We went for a walk earlier, she's playing with the other dog and jumping around fine (it's "chicken & rice" night for the dogs). There are plenty of water bowls scattered about the house and I've seen her drinking.
Trust me, I'd have absolutely no problem in making a trip to the vet if Maxine seemed disoriented, tired or sluggish ...
I suppose ox cheek could be worth a try and the dogs would enjoy a change! How did you prepare it for "best" results ... As a soup, as a mince, or ... or doesn't it matter?
The puppies seem to be feeding ok ... Is it just possible that the puppies sucked the teats "dry" and it takes an hour or two for the teat to "reset"?
Thanks for the advice,
