i just got my new puppy. hes a 2 month german sheperd puppy. i knoe he was pretty sad last night that he was separated from his brothers and sisters. but he ate last night and hes not eating today at all. i got his shots today but the vet never said about him not eating anymore. he seems so sad. it breaks my heart. anybody have this happen to them before? and as for potty training. lol uhh help?
That happened to me too. But then i got this special type of chunkymushy food and than he started to eat a little by little and about 2~3 months later he started to eat round, hard food. With potty training it is really up to u. If you are home most of the day and can take the dog outside than that is great but my family is at work and im at school so we by the special potty training mattresses at pets mart. but besides that i can't help u.
kissmegaby..... The dog will likely not eat due to stress. It is sad, but it is a natural reaction. Just like people. I know I wouldn't eat if I were ripped out of my family. So... Don't change anything about how you feed the dog. Set your regular schedule that you want to have in the future. The best thing is get them familiar with the "new life" and the "new schedule" and in a day or two they will snap out of it. They will not kill themselves from not eating. It just makes you feel bad. Make sure they are drinking water. That is important. Don't force food until it's been longer.
