Has anyone has any experience with this or know anything about it? Treatment/therapy suggestions? TIA!

Never heard of it, but found some good information by Googling:

Sounds very sad

How old's the pup and is it with it's mother? If it is- do you or the owner have it on it's side on a milky teet?

Thanks Tred...I've done some googling too...it is very sad, but it sounds like if caught in time, therapy would work

The puppy is 4 weeks old. She's with the mother...she's with the owner and I don't believe he does. I'm going to mention that to him and I suppose we'll know more when she goes back to the vet this week. Thanks!

They can be OK- it's not always a death sentence but the trick is to lay on the side with a teet and massage the little pup- need to get them muscles going. My mate breeds dogs and when I saw a poor little sod in that state I welled up!! He's alright now- they called him Phelps ha

I used to breed labs and had never heard of this - it seems it's more common in breeds with short legs, which is why I probably didn't experience it. Good luck to the puppy!

This might be helpful.

Good luck indeed

Oops- that wasn't intentional- I think it is very rare. My mate's bred for a few years now and he only came across it that once.

We had a Toy Fox Terrier that was a 'swimmer'. Her butt was a little bigger than normal, but she ended up having no issues at all with that. The dog only lived to be three years old. It couldn't digest protein and died. We tried to save her, and thought she was going to be ok, but I found her dead in her kennel one morning. I would say the swimmer problem should warrant expectations of more problems down the road.
