Was the pup eating the food moistened at the breeder? If he likes treats is it possible you are giving him more calories in treats than you realize?

thank you for getting back to me so quickly! i switched him to 3 times a day and i tried putting some of his favorite treats in the food. it worked this morning but tonight he's not falling for it again... I'm seriously worried so tomorrow I'm going to the emergency vets office.
Ps I'll try broth trick tomorrow morning... I'm just scared his got something serious.

|Gretchen||Do you think he has stress from traveling from Italy to Geneva and moving to a new home? Does he eat anything or just refuses the RC? You may want to divide the food into 3 feedings per day. Have you tried moistening the food with broth instead of water?|

If your puppy isn't eating you should get him to the vets for a check up. I'd also try a different puppy food, maybe he doesn't like his food? I have read that you shouldn't add water to any kind of dog food because your dog may get the bloat. The kibbles swell up in dogs stomach.

Sometimes if they are not feeling well, they won't eat. If she does not eat for more than 2 days, at such a young age, I would seek the advice of your vet so they can check her health.
It is always a good idea to put water in with the dry kibble - let it soak for about 15 minutes as this is much more palatable to the dog as the water and soaking method releases oils from the kibble.
Keep a close eye on her and if you are concerned take her to the vet.

HELP my little angel GSD is not eating!!!
I'm now to this blog but I'm not new to the GSD dog, i ave always grown up with GSD's in the house but now that I moved away from my parents house and started living with my girlfriend we decided to get ourselves a little one of our own. heres the problem:
We got him from a top line breeder in Italy and we moved him to Geneva Switzerland. I give him food 2 times a day 100gm of the same food the breeder gave me (royal canin for german shepherd puppy) and i add a hand full of "new food" also royal canin for german shepherd puppy but the one i find here in Switzerland. I add a little bit of water so that the food is not to dry and my 2.5 month baby can eat the food but when I put it down he just looks at me and goes to sleep.
Ive tried spoon feeding him, the food putting it on the floor, ect. but he just wont eat more then a bight... please I don't know what to do anymore.
Somehow he's also full of energy... we go to the park several times a day to meet other dogs and he runs around and socialises with others, he is not as tired as you would expect...
ps my parents have come back from a holiday today so I'm sure they will have lots of insights but i ask the question here because the more info i get the better.
oh and if anyone is a GSD owner in geneva Switzerland let me know it would be cool to go out for walks...
Thank you for your time
