8 week old Springer Spaniel puppy not eating much

by Karen
(UK)


Hi, I've recently brought home our new puppy, shes 8 weeks old. According to her feeding shes to have 4 meals a day which equates to 100gs a day so four feeds of 25g. However she is only eating about 50g a day.


I know puppys can go off their food after leaving the litter but wondered if it was more than this. She does look on the skinny side, I can feel her spine. She is active and playful apart from the feeding, im not sure if this is a problem or just normal for her?

Hi there
If she is fine in herself she is probably ok. Just keep an eye on it and if it gets worse seek medical help

Feeding NEW
by: Sally

Hi, ive just got an 8 week springer and she's. It I tnterested in eating that much either, I was told by my breeder that springers are not big eaters like some dogs, so it's comforting to hear that you had the same problems. She was weaned on raw food and is still being fed the raw food diet, but she certainly won't eat 400g per da, more like 200g sometime a little more.
