I am sorry to hear you are worried about Tesa. It is unusual for a growing puppy to not eat well. What kibble are you feeding?

Expert:  Rebecca replied 1 month ago.

You can try mixing in canned food with the kibble to get her to eat. If she is not used to canned food, start with small amounts so she does not get diarrhea.

Does she already have any diarrhea, or vomiting? Are her stools well formed?
