    its a little worrying to hear its just one of the litter!
    how old are the pups?
    if it was diet all pups would have this problem
    is it possible its eaten a part of a toy that may have caused a blockage?
    hopefully this will soon pass,but you may need a vet to look at this problem

    Try putting a couple of small drops of castor oil on the pups tongue. If this does not work then it would be wise to take the pup to the vets as this can be dangerous in young pups.
