Sounds like pain, and there's not a way for your vet to diagnose the pup over the phone. Sounds like a trip to the office is in order.

Do you think the pup is hungry? Is that what you mean? Is the pup able suckle properly? How many pups in the litter? Does Mom have enough milk? When did you have the pups to the vet?

Try giving it karo syrup and a bottle could be lack of sugars. But just know even the vets could do everything and it could not survive. A friend had a pup like this and it didn't survive. Not saying every pup is the same im hoping you will be able to save this pup. go to the office and tell them this pup needs to see a vet now.

Your pup must be in pain. Please take him to the vet so that accurate treatment can be given.
