I was having the same trouble with my female, but I have found that if I give her 3 smaller meals a day, it helps her appetite. Also, make sure you find a puppy food she likes. I went from Royal Canin to Purina puppy chow. I don't understand her taste buds but she is only a dog. lol. My girl is going on 7 weeks now, and at least she is eating better. It is scary when they don't want to eat....
It happens. Do what you have to in order to make sure she eats something. Whether you have to switch to straight canned for a bit (not a great choice but if shes preg, you do what you gotta do) cook her some chicken, beef, liver, etc. Vitamin supplements are always reccomended for females in whelp anyway, even when they are eating good.
People are like slinky's, not really good for much. But its still fun to push them down the stairs.
Spaying and neutering helps stem the tide of overpopulation. It does not affect animals energy levels or change their personalities, as some people mistakenly believe. Spaying eliminates the stress and discomfort that females endure during heat periods, eliminates the risk of uterine cancer, and greatly reduces the risk of mammary cancer. Neutering makes males far less likely to roam or fight, prevents testicular cancer, and reduces the risk of prostate cancer. Altered animals are less likely to contract deadly, contagious diseases spread through bodily fluids, such as feline AIDS and leukemia.
I have been cooking for mine she is very picky eater I made her hamburger/rice yesterday and I cooked her a roast with baby carrots today she has been eating.Sometimes you have to try different foods to get them eating my little girl thinks she is human.
Because as pregancies go on the mama gets very uncomfortbale and is full of puppies you need to feed smaller spread out meals of high quality food. Unless you are working with a vet nutritionist do not give any suppliments as you may do more harm than good.
Right before whelping many females will refuse food
If you are cooking for her and not roviding a balanced food supply you can also do more harm than good.
FYI some dogs even get sort of a morning sickness so to speak for a little while
If however the female refuses food totally and it is not near the whelping date or has any other strange changes you need to get to a vet.
Not to be harsh, but Please consider doing more research before deciding to breed again. This is basic breeding 101 info.
