My Puppy is not Eating
Being with people the first day home
Your puppy(s) leaving their mother and litter-mates will probably bring about some anxiety. When your new puppy arrives at your house, he'll be a little disoriented, confused, and worried because it (they) was recently taken from his mother and siblings. Dogs are social creatures, so this separation can be distressing to a young puppy. By making sure it (they) gets a lot of attention from your family and is successfully introduced to and accepted by any other household pets, you can help him to adjust more quickly.
However, this can be greatly diminished if you plan your schedules so that you will be home with the puppy the first 3 to 4 days like during a long weekend, if you can. Some authors suggest leaving the puppy alone and give her time to herself to adjust to the new surroundings. I disagree. In my home, we plan for this introductory period by keeping the puppy involved with plenty of attention from me and other family member as well as any established pets you feel will accept the puppy. When we are not with the puppy, it is sleeping. You will be amazed how time spent in this manner will speed up the housebreaking process. If the children are young or are not familiar with how to handle puppies, you should spend some time with them during these first few days explaining common sense rules on how to play with the puppy.
If he stops eating I suggest hand feeding him/her, only for the first night or morning. After that the only time you'd hand feed him is if your vet suggests it. Otherwise, you want to feed him at a regularly scheduled time every day. Although, with Poodles I suggest leaving food down at all times. This helps to avoid over eating if her/she becomes over hungry and gobbling up too much food, which can lead to Bloat. If you decide to put food down for him/her on a schedule and he/she doesn't eat the food in 15 minutes, remove it and leave only the water. Put his food back down at his next regular feeding. ALWAYS LEAVE CLEAN FRESH WATER. PUPPIES ARE PRONE TO BLADDER INFECTIONS OR UTIS IF NOT ADEQUATELY HYDRATED. Their bladders are too tiny very hold much so dehydration and subsequent UTIs and Kidney or Bladder infections WILL occur. Also, use Distilled water for a while until your puppy(s) have grown up a little. There are less minerals and chemicals they have to process out.
You'll probably feel a bit guilty if your puppy isn't eating because of the potential problems it can cause. Actually, there's not much to worry about regarding dog nutrition as long as the lack of food intake is short term. He will have sufficient reserves to keep him healthy for the short term. Still, you'll want to take a look at possible causes of his eating problems to shorten the delay in his getting proper nutrition.
