My French Bulldog had her first litter of pups. There were 2. She was an excellent mother. At 4 wks. of age, the pups got out of the whelping box and into her area. She apparently jumped on them a lot. They died of internal injuries. Could she have done this out of depression (she did not appear depressed)? I am searching for answers to this tragedy. She had to have known she was hurting them.
You have to watch the pups more carefully. Mom doesn't understand what she did. Sorry but you have to be more careful next time, vetcare
