hi, sorry i still haven't posted pictures of my baby.
She's 16weeks and 9 days old.
Is loosing appetite one of the things that i should expect if she's teething? or is it another thing? i'm really worried, she can't even finish 1 cup of her meal. sometimes she doesn't even touch it. I've been giving her eukanoba as what the breeder recommended. should i change it?

Are you softening the food with water? Sometimes when they are teething, it hurts them to chew hard kibble.

How is her weight? Is she drinking enough water to stay hydrated? Is she playful otherwise? What about her stools-are they nice and solid, or loose and smelly?

How long has your puppy been with you? Did she eat well when you first brought her home? My Hank wouldn't eat the food he was on at the breeder's from day one.

she's been with us for 2 months now and she's a monster feeder during the first few months.
nope i usually give her dry kibbles, but my mom cooked her some stewed beef earlier and mixed it with her regular food and rice. as usual, she wasn't able to finish it. she's 25 lbs now. yep, she's drinking lots of water, she prefers to drink rather than eat. she's not that playful lately. her stools the same, it's nice and solid.

i'm really worried..

It could be her teething. Teething can make their appetite less and also their mouth stinky. Can you check her mouth to see if any teeth are missing? Some of the things you can do to help the mouth is a carrot frozen or a dishtowel wet and then frozen. They will help to make her mouth feel better. And make sure you put a towel under her when she is chewing on them because they can become messy.
