Only use a little bit of goats milk for a young pup, goats milk is very easy to digest and doesn't cause tummy upsets unlike cow milk.

Sunflowers One of these is great for puppies. Gives them something to do, too.

meggy10 Thank you everyone! I mixed some pumpkin in her food for lunch and she ate a little and about 4ish she started crying and I couldn't figure out why. Well right now I put her food in her bowl and she was at my feet so I just put it down and she ate most of it. It was probably a little less than 1/2 a cup but I'm still happy and relieved she finally ate!! Thank you for y'all's advice. I'm also going to try the treat/kibble toy. Thank you all again.

SummerGSDLover My pup did the same. I called my vet, explained and he told me to buy beef flavored milk replacer at a pet store. Mixed some up, warm, added to his food and he ate like he was starving. Lol good luck! Adorable!!!

Lilie At this stage in the game you can utilize your kibble as treats for going outside to potty. When she goes potty, throw a party and give her a kibble.

My5dogs Try a tiny bit of canned on top or mix it in. I put a tsp of pure pumpkin and tsp of plain Greek yogurt. My pup eats it all up. Could be change of environment.

Sunflowers Have you tried raw?
I would not feed milk, risk of diarrhea there.
Here is what happened to me:

btw, she is absolutely gorgeous.
