That is too long to go without being fed, your vet should be feeding them for the duration of their stay. The vet should also be able to instruct you of the ways to feed your pups and when to feed them. You will need baby bottles with small nipples and to get a good milk replacement formula to feed the pups. I bottle fed ours every two hours or when they appeared to be hungry (they will easily let you know)
