Puppy not eating dinner

Yesterday at around 4pm my toddler fed our 7 week old puppy a corn dog. I caught them in the act as she was about to finish it. I grabbed it but she had eaten pretty much the whole thing (just the corn dog, not the stick). At around 5:30pm she had a very loose poop. At 6pm I fed her dinner and she just sniffed it and walked off. Never ate it. She was acting fine and playful like normal. Later that night we went out again and she had a very gross completely liquid poop. I was of course freaking out because it's what I do.
This morning I got up and there was no mess in her crate and she went outside and had a solid poop then came in and ate her breakfast like normal. Later she ate her lunch and everything seemed fine. About an hour ago she had another solid poop. I was relieved and figured she must have just had an upset tummy from the corn dog yesterday.
Then just now I put down her dinner and she sniffed it and walked away. Came back for a couple bites but seems disinterested. What the heck?? Doesn't she know what a worry wart her mother is??? Any ideas? We did come home with pizza that she was very interested in right before I put her food down but now she's given up trying to get it but still hasn't touched her dinner.

It's possible her tummy is a bit upset, also possible that the corn dog tastes much better than her food so she's trying to hold out for another. Ha. I keep 100% canned pumpkin on hand for any tummy issues. Most dogs love it. Just a couple of tablespoons until she feels better

Corn dog would upset my stomach, I can only imagine the effect it would have on a seven week old puppy. As long as she shows interest in some food, and she is drinking enough water, just watch her for the next day or so. If her stomach doesn't normalize, IE; normal poops, a visit to the Vet would be my plan. Don't know how old your toddler is, but hopefully you can impress on him or her, that the wrong food can make puppy sick. My guess is, she will soon start eating her food, but keep watching her.

Toddler isn't even 2 yet. We don't normally give him food in the living room and he is supposed to only eat in the dining room away from puppy. A neighbor kid came over while I was making dinner and gave all 3 of my kids corn dogs without me knowing. Lol. I walked in to see baby feeding it to the puppy.

Anyway, she's ok now. We found out that she had not been wormed so got some meds from the vet. She's back to normal now.

Glad she is back to normal. I suspected it would be temporary, but its always a good idea to watch them closely, when they start acting abnormally.
