What would you like to do?
This is very abnormal behavior for a female dog. Potential causes include behavioral problems in the mother, frank starvation of the mother or major deformities in the puppies. Regardless of the cause, this female should not be bred again - spaying to prevent future pregnancies would be a good idea.

no she will take care of them until there ready to move on.
wrong you have to separate them for a couple weeks or moths then see how it turns out put them back together if the mom try to kill one then you really need to call the vetena…rian and then they will talk about it with you That, I think, is called Wrong.^ The puppies should NOT be separated from their mothers at any time. They need the milk, because of the nutrients in it. Unless the mother actually lets you squeeze milk out of her nipples, They should not be separated. If the mother tries to kill a puppy, that means that either something is wrong with the mother, or she is using her intuition and predicting that something is wrong with the puppy. You would need to call the vet to see what is wrong. Hopefully nothing would be wrong, but you'd know. Like I said, call the vet just to be on the safe side.
to be stern from the beginning
well mine do it and i think that she starts to get tired of them drinking milk and they have their teeth in and it more that likely hurts her + with mine she is very jealous
Yes, although you should carefully watch to make sure the puppies aren't being smothered or crushed. The mother will lay over her puppies when they are newborn to keep them wa…rm.
no it is not, that is nasty.
softer foods, my friends dog also had to give it pills so it can eat better.
At five weeks old the puppies are getting old enough to be weened. She may just be telling them enough with the breast feeding already! Often a good mother will shut her pups …off so they will move on to solid food. Otherwise the pups would most likely continue to nurse for years.
Yes but its highly unrecommended. The same blood line like in humans can become defective.
Sometimes they lie on top of the puppies and suffocate them.
if it is taken care of it will survive
well a mother can attack her puppy because she might be rejecting the one week old puppy and if not then i would get some help with a vet
I think the puppy has to be at least 6 weeks for it to be dewormed. I got my puppy dewormed at 6 weeks.( R.I.P hunter)
