One puppy died before Dr. Flores was even able to bring them home, and another was very weak and died shortly thereafter. Dogs that are abandoned often do not have access to proper nutrition and care. The result for females who become pregnant can be dire, as they are unable to get enough nutrition to adequately feed all their babies.
Once Dr. Flores brought the puppies home, she was able to relieve Kiki of some of her motherly burden. The sweet momma received vitamins, including extra calcium, and a parasite treatment, since Kiki was covered in fleas, that wouldn't hurt the puppies.
Dr. Flores also had to carefully tube feed the babies so they could get the nutrition they needed, and of course, she made sure mom got as much food and water as she wanted.
Nursing mother dogs should have access to food at all times, or at least be offered food five times a day. At this stage, she needed to eat around three times the amount she would normally, and drink plenty of water. Luckily, with plenty of nutritious food and TLC, Kiki was able to start nursing her puppies again.
