Hi,

Bought a puppy home 3 days ago now at 8 weeks.

The breeder had him on royal canin packs - Royal Canin Mini Puppy / Junior Wet Dog Food 24 Pack 85g Each For Young And Growing Small Breed Dogs Up To 10 Months Old: Amazon.co.uk: Pet Supplies

We have tried to keep him to them but the back of the packet says 4 a day at 85g each. He doesn't eat that much maybe one and a half packets a day over 4 sittings. Tried feeding some treats as well but they gave him diahorea.

Starting to get really concerned hes not eating enough particularly as he has dioherrea (no blood or anything super nasty) but luckily drinks a lot of water as well.

How much food would you expect a pup to eat? He is small only 1kg or so well.

Thank you

Ask the breeder how much he was eating maybe - it is still very early days so he is probably still settling into your home

Rightly or wrongly I fed my puppy who was also tiny however much he wanted for the first few days. I just fed him kibble. He slowly gained weight. Good luck
