lol well we havent directly handfed them... but the mother was feral so we kept a good eye out on them. she was nice enough to let us hold them and weigh them etc.. until one started to cry..
sigh... clicking.. he was clicking already before i got a hold of him. rememebr when i said he got 'flushed' out with water? i think thats what happened. we feed him with a thin paintbrush so it cant choke him with too much food..

Oh I see. I think we raised anywhere frOm 1-20 litters. A few premature-those were seriously hard.
I didn't read he got flushed with water? Can you re write it?

It might if he is still doing okay and eating, even though it's just a little bit. Don't give up! There are miraculous recoveries all the time :)

There is a medication that helps with treating URI.
Don't call me crazy - it's for avians.
It's calling Ornyacycline/Tetracycline. You can find it at the petstore I believe.
I'd give the pup next to nothing of it, but it may help it out.

And like I said - next to nothing.
Maybe mix a little in its formula.
