I read the directions on the can and the can said up to 5lbs feed up to 1 can. Envy is about 3.5lbs right now at 7 weeks old. I'm feeding her twice a day, and was seeing that I was feeding a half can a day between those 2 feedings.
She ended up with really runny poop, tinged slightly with blood, and just pooping A LOT!! I think I have been over feeding her? What do you think? Also what would be an appropriate amount? I gave her like 3-4 teaspoon's this morning which only skimmed the top of the can lol so I'm hoping that now I'm not feeding her too little. I'm not used to feeding canned dog food to such a little puppy so I can use all the help I can get!
Thanks in Advance
Hi I would give her goats milk, until her tummy settles and then gradually give her the food you want to give her is it dry or wet,if it is dry put a little warm water as it will make it more appetising,my puppy is 6mths old and she has 1lb.8oz of tripe she is a fussy eater,and we chose tripe because its strong smelling,and we had to feed her something,as she was very nervous around food, so would think your puppy would only need a small amount and every dry food differs in recommendation,over here we have James Wellbeloved chicken & rice,turkey & rice,it is always recommended for puppies as it it is easily digestable,they have a good web site which may help.gemini
