Milo, 8wks, Vizsla
We brought our 8wk Vizsla puppy, Milo, home 2 days ago, and overall, everything has been going really well except for eating. He doesn’t seem to eat much, and I often have to hand feed him to get him going. He was thinner than most of the litter already, and the breeder said he just has a high metabolism. He’s definitely lost a little weight in the past couple days though, as his ribs are clearly visible. Im feeding a raw food diet with salmon oil and supplements like the breeder was, but his total food consumption in one day is approximately 1 minced chicken breast filet, a small broccoli crown, a scoop of cottage cheese, and some freeze dried liver treats here and there (he loves those!). He’ll snack throughout the day but never eats a full meal. He did well with a chicken leg after I cut a bit of the meat off the bone and hand fed him. His poops are solid and healthy, he’s playful, and he takes himself to his crate for naps. He’s just very much on the skinny side. How much should he be eating?
