Fading puppy syndrome Owner Factsheet

Puppies that fail to thrive and die soon after birth are often called “fading puppies”. There are two types: true fading puppies where the cause of death is unknown and puppies failing to thrive where there is a known underlying cause. Deaths of very young puppies (pre-weaning) can be up to 30%, with approximately half of these occurring in the first two weeks of life.
