puppy not eating much
so my new pup came home last saturday and ever since I have had her she is barely eating anything. Yesterday at the vet she weighed 11.6 lbs at 9.5 weeks. The vet told me she should be closer to 15 lbs. Problem is she just is not interested in food. She is being transitioned off eukanuba LBP to Fromm LBP. I picked up a can of Wellness puppy and a can of organic pumpkin and she sort of likes that but will still only take a few bites then wander off. The most I have been able to get her to eat is 2.5 cups a day and that was with lots of coaxing by using her kibble as training rewards for sitting and laying down. She is very active and playful, loves her toys, loves walks, just has no interest in food. The vet gave her a clean bill of health and she was last dewormed saturday when I picked her up and two times before that. she seems to like the fromm better than the eukanuba which is kind of big and hard for her to chew. still though today it took her several hours to eat just a cup with pumpkin and canned food mixed in. Her stools are kind of soft but are generally good in the morning, I had attributed this to her switching foods and being in a new environment.....any tips or suggestions?
i realize i am probably over thinking this and I am in the process of getting a stool test done to rule out giardia ect.
