I have the same problem with my new Puppy she only 8wks. She want eat and someone told me to try a little Yogurt and take it away little by little. Is this a good idea?.

But, I will let you know if it works.

If it is a large breed puppy, yogurt is a stupid idea. Most puppy chows have close to the maximum amount of calcium to avoid joint damage. Adding yogurt, milk, or any other rich source of calcium can wreck their joints. Don't do it. Ignore any other advice from that source.

New puppies may take a little while to adjust, but soon should be eating all they need. Over fed puppies may not eat well either. The solution isn't bribing them to eat more than they need. Over weight is hard on any dog, but another way of creating joint problems in large breeds.

Thank you. I guess I have to have patience, I just dont want her to get sick if she's not eating it's been 3 days the only thing thats not making me insane is she's drinking lots. Should I try soft puppy food the other owner of the puppy did. I just heard that its not good either. Thanks for the advice.

No just stick to the dry kibble. After 3 days, it may be time to talk to the vet, more so if she is on the thin side.

You could add some water to the food to make it soft . That's helped with my foster puppies and you wouldn't be changing the food itself. Another option would be to feed the wet version of whatever brand you're feeding. It'll be almost the same but with more moisture (and often less fillers so she'll get more nutrition if eating a small amount). I do agree that a vet should be called if she's really not eating. Where did you get her?

I also use similar method for my pups when they weren't eating at first. Sometimes you have to gradually build up their appetite for food when they're real young.
