Gwenhwyfair Hi, he is looking wonderful! Gorgeous pup.

I can't help with your feeding question, but below this sub forum is the "feeding our puppy" sub forum. Perhaps look there for answers or ask your feeding question there.

So glad he is doing well!

ChouMaKen Neo stool is finally firm this morning after switching to Royal Canin GI25 for a few days.

What I am noticing is that he is 3.5 month old and 8.5 kg only. I know he is recovering from parvo but I am worried to be underfeeding him and stunt his growth.

Should I feed him more?

When he was on strictly chicken he was having around 600 grams of boiled chicken a day. Now he is getting 200 grams of Royal Canin gi25 a day following his current weight (rounded up) on the chart.

drew123 My puppy had a very small bladder and had to go out sometimes 3 times a night. The problem was it was hard to keep her in a crate cause she never gave any signs of needing to go. I discovered that (for me at least) it was easier to let her sleep next to me, and whenever she woke up and atarted stirring around, that meant she needed to go out. I even let her in the bed with me every so often, because when she wokeup it also woke me up. She's over a year old now and only really needs to potty 2-3 times a day but it was a headache. Especially having to stand out in the snow at 4 a.m. but looking back those were the good times. That being said, crate training is still a necessity for your dog, I just went about it all a different way.

ChouMaKen Few updates

1. Neo finally got over his fear of stairs yesterday and took the first 3 steps down and then up again

2. Also last night was Neo's first time he sleeps all through the night. He had dinner at 7 and removed water then. Went out for the last time at 9h30 pm then crated at around 10. I was planning on letting him out at around 2 am but he didn't wake up till 6 this morning

ChouMaKen Thank you Ellimaybel I will give it a try this afternoon and keep you posted...

On the other hand Neo showed for the first time possession behavior today towards my 9 years old son.

He was planing with his kong and my son tried to take it from him to make him play, Neo growled for a few seconds then barked at him.

Should I be worried about that or just ignore it ?

Thank you

Ellimaybel When Gunther went through the phase of not wanting his dry food I ran the chicken and rice through the food processor and then added that to the dry food with some water. It wasn't parvo but it still did the job I needed done.

ChouMaKen Well the vet advised me to get him on brown rice and chicken breast and I am.

He is eating quite well with lot of appetite, my problem now is that he is refusing to eat dry food anymore...

I tried to mix as little as 25% of dry food with the chicken and rice and he left them untouched...

P. S. Thanks everyone for the welcome home wishes
