Is this normal for a 10 week puppy
Hi all, Sasha is 10 weeks today!!! Since she has been home she only eats about ¼ to ½ cup for breakfast then goes looking for her bowl around lunch time (we take it away when she shows no interest in it) and finishes it off. Then dinner same thing, eats about ¼ to ½ cup and walks away and shows no interest. With a little help, eating out of my hand she will eat a little more but not finish it then later on in the evening she goes looking for her bowl again. Is this normal for a 10 week pup?
We started with the Orijen Adult and thought maybe she didn’t like it as she had an upset tummy, vomiting and very loose/soft stools so I put some pure pumpkin with her kibble but again only ate ¼ to ½. Have not put pumpkin since there was no vomiting or diarrhea but her poop is still very soft. We just recently started her on Fromm’s to see if this makes a difference, again she only eats ¼ to ½ and walks away.
The other thing is when we are in the backyard playing, she would rather eat dirt, literally out of the garden then play. I coaxed her back to play it works for a short time and then she runs for the dirt. That’s when playtime outside ends.
Any advice? Any thoughts as to why she only eats so little amounts at a time?
