Default How to make your puppy eat?

After I switched to Fromm food, he's been eating everything in the bowl for the first week. Now he's going back to what he normally does, eat half the bowl and after that we have to follow him everywhere and lay the food on the floor or hand feed him than he'll eat it. Any tips or ideas of how to make him eat all his food?

That's a hard one mines not even eating but tiny mouthfuls it's a nightmare , I'm even spoon feeding him water he's been to vets as has a bug , poor boo .. My vet said never put food in his bowl as dogs as puppies get bred if you make it not a game it's more appealing to them ... Imagine us eying dry same food every day yuck xx

No Shirley he's got a bug just now past few days , he got anti inflammatory jags today , hoping he will eat better , but in enteral he's not a big eater , he's getting a fussy boy and likes to be hand fed he's terrible for it but my vet said nothing wrong with that as its more appealing for them xx

I did this when daisy didn't eat that is hand fed her. The vet told me not to do this!!!! Your pup will get into the habit and won't eat by themselves. Maybe they are like us I hate big meals I can't stomach them so I eat little but often try this with your pups/dogs and they will eat. Daisy eats all her daily allowance now well after we take out the weight of her treats. Don't disturb them when they are eating either. Try adding wet food or warmed water enhances smell etc it really does help

Adding water doesn't sound appetizing but I'll try that since it helped Daisy. Maltese dogs are very high maintenance

How did he get inflammatory jags? Is it cause of the winter? Did Albert used to eat more or he always ate the same amount?
