Also update: four kittens are having milk from momma cat but one of them isnt so im givjng him formula milk.Also an hour ago i sat down and watched her feed her babies. She was standing up and not lying down and thats when max 3 kittens were having her milk. If she lies down, only 2 kittens drink her milk and the rest just meow and irritate her more.
I have also noticed black spot across her nipples?? I dont think the vet noticed that... i will be honest vets in my city arent very reliavle so im really worried!!!
Also i think its imp to mention that about 5 months ago she had something in her stomach. An infection sort kf which formed a lump. It got better after meds.. but it sure did pain her
You could try and rotate them. Let the half whom had just eaten, take their midday nap in their own little nest, with a heat pad holding them warm.
And the other half, having quality time with momma. And rotate them roughly every two hours.
Re. supplement feeding: this kmr you use is apparently good enough. But if you can get raw goats milk it may be even better. Raw goats milk comes too from an alive momma, so it has some infection and inflammation suppressing properties. Cartooned or powdered goats milk is OK to use too, but its not the same potential edge, and thus - not better than the kmr you already have. Possibly cheaper, but not better.
And a scale to weight them daily, IS a good help. They be sick or healhty... Try to lend one from some neigbour, perhaps.
One thing more. Its probably good if the air humidity is rather hight, if they have difficult to breathe. Airing with open mouth dryies them out.
So it wasnt pneumonia. I though it could be - and thus, the kitten more or less dying. Apparently it is some disease, serious and contagious, but not necessarily deadly.
So "just" to continue with your good work and your efforts!
