newborn pup was wet and not responding when found, we took it inside and made a tempory heated enclosure, we are trying to feed it half evaporated milk and half water mix but it comes through its nose, we looked at its "teeth" and it only has one pointy tooth, we think it maybe deformed.

mother of newborn pup has also given birth to 3 other health pups, but is scared and not feeding them like she should, how do we know she is going to feed them?

PLEASE HELP

Is the pup all white? If so, it may be what's called a lethal white guinea pig. They are born blind, deaf, with wonky or completely missing teeth, and poorly functioning digestive tracts. Most do not live more than a few hours or days, but if they, they require lifelong intensive care.

If it is all white, please DO NOT BREED again.

It'll take several hours for the pups to feed.
