Appetite not the bestJune 27, 2020, 12:13 PM
- Q: Our puppy is 10 weeks old today. We brought him home 10 days ago. Eating has been a challenge. He was sent home on Canin small starter kibble and supplemental baby chicken food. He has has become disinterested in both. We were told to try other soft foods and Royal Canin Puppy appetite stimulant which he no longer likes. He was 3 lbs 6 oz prior to bringing him home. His vet visit is this Monday. Heâ€™s a very playful and active Pomsky. Iâ€™m concerned as heâ€™s not eating what and how much we were told he should be eating. Any recommendations would be appreciated.
- A: Since he has been with you a week, feels good and at 4 pounds or so you can wait him out. I would pick a good quality food (Royal Canin is good) and â€œwait him outâ€. On average if he were eating dry food only he should average about 3/4 cup per day.
