It's time to take your little dog into the vets. There could many things wrong: Infection Cold Fever Digestive Problems Bowel problems Parasites Of course there are all sorts of diseases, but it probably is just something that antibiotics will resolve. Please don't try home remedies and get your little dog to the vets as soon as possible. THINGS TO TAKE TO THE VET: If you dog has had a bowel movement take a sample of it with a clean popsicle stick or swab of sorts, and insert it into an old pill bottle with the dogs name (your last name) what time the stool sample was taken, the date as well. This will help cut-down on guessing re the vet and can tell a lot by the sample. Be sure to tell the vet the little dog isn't eating, shivering or if the dog is drinking excessive water or not drinking at all. Any information you can give helps and will lower your vet bill costs. Good luck Marcy

Will the dog eat her puppies?

DEFINITELY NOT. Well, that would actually depend on the circumstances. A well civilized dog with a nice home and owner, would definitely NOT eat her puppies.

But most likely the mother would scavenge for other food to keep her AND her pups alive.

My shitzu keeps wanting to lick my new baby kittens bottom and barking at it im scared that the dog might eat it Do dogs eat kitten?

Yes dogs can eat cats and if not eat them hurt them like chewing on them but you can train a dog not to eat cats. I have a shtzu X, and she loves cats, but doesn't know how to play gently with them . I have to keep telling her, it's a baby, be gentle. If your dog doesn't go after cats, just don't let them play unsupervised, and keep petting the kitten and saying " IT's a BABY! , be gentle."
