Well yeah my puppy chihuahua will not eat her food I don't know why she is doing this and it really does annoy me a bit because I think she is just being a bit spoiled. I tried feeding her out of my hand, but nope she won't eat it. So what should I do does anybody know what to do.

You really need to go to vet. Because I did before when my dog, a shitzu don't eat that much. And he said that toy dogs usually don't eat in large amount. It eats only twice a day. With dog food and fresh milk. My dog was also given vitamins to take daily.

I think that I will have to go with the vet I just hope that it's not to expensive because I don't have much money. I should of probably never gotten a puppy because I think that I am going to have difficulty.

Yeah I assure you that your problem will soon be solve. Don't worry the consultation is not that expensive. I think its less than 4 US dollars. The sooner you get to your pet's vet the better. I wish that your dog will soon get well. Have a nice day!

Any other changes like not interested in drinking water and or being playful. Make observance of whether your puppy withdraws from anything else. Perhaps a visit to the vet may in in order. May the puppy is just not interested for today, After all they too have bad days as well.

Yeah I mean she does drink water because it is a hot day today maybe she doesn't feel like eating. Yeah I have bad days too where I don't want to eat I will just have to keep a watch over her to see how she acts or maybe she missed my brother and sister who went to school today. She did eat just a little bit when she knew that they came home maybe it was just some depression right there anyways thanks for responding I really appreciate in everyone trying to help me out with this issue.

Does your puppy eat other food, and just not the food you are giving her now? Or nothing? And is she drinking? is she active? If it's just an attitude about food, she will come around and eat it when she gets hungry enough, but if there are other problems, you should take her to see a vet.

No she does drink water and she is very active still now that it has come up I haven't had my puppy dewormed and I probably should go to the vet soon because I don't want her to get sick from worms or anything like that.

Probably she doesn't like the food. Try making him drink milk, just to build his appetite, and try deworming him, he might have parasites. =))

No she does like it because she has eaten it before. Oh deworming I actually haven't done that yet I never knew that puppies had to be dewormed.

i had this problem a week ago, my dog had some issues about missing her big sis (my girlfriend), he changed his address and now he's living with me. :) what's her usual diet? is it always dog food or do you give her people food? my dog didn't eat for 2 days, i mean, he barely ate. on the second night, i left a bowl of dog food near him and he ate them all when i woke up. there might be something that maybe be causing her to lose her appetite... our an upset stomach. ask a vet first just to be on the safe side.

Well yeah actually my mom started giving her people food and I told her to stop because that would mess up her digestive system. Today my mom was going to give a cookie to my puppy and I caught her and told my mom no because then my puppy won't want to eat. Hopefully it doesn't get bad that I have to take her to the vet that would be bad.
