Dear Dogster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Dogster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Dogster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Dogster magazine, www.dogster.com and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.

Cheers,
Dogster

    Why is she not getting her mother's milk??? At 4 weeks she should be still nursing and just being supplemented with softened puppy food, NOT cerelac. Cerelac is for humans and is mostly a grain based product. Dogs are carnivores and need MUCH higher protein levels derived from meat products. And, cows milk is for cows and is not digested properly by dogs as they lack the enzymes necessary to convert it to usable nutrients. Get her back to nursing from her mother and start her with ground puppy food mixed with warm water. She should continue nursing until 5 to 6 weeks, at which time she should be eating puppy food, not human baby food.

    Green poo in humans is a sign of liver damage, and it's certainly cause for concern especially in such a young pup. I'm assuming there's a story behind why she's not getting milk directly from mama, but it sounds like she needs a vet.
