Default Help, pup chihuahua doesnt eat solid food

I got this pup chihuahua for near 2 weeks. It is 9 weeks old now. At first it is so into kibbles soaked into water. It was having a serious flu n cough for a week and caught diarrhea while was fed too much flu medicine. Diarrhea cured and having slight flu and cough. Right now it lost interest in solid food, tried rice n chicken, canned wet puppy food, all doesnt work its only interested in goats milk and nutrition paste. It had 3 seizures attacks recently in a week due to hypoglycemia. Looks lethargic everyday. What can i do to make him eat these nutritious food?

He does sound like he should be under vet care still.
Offer him anything tasty to encourage him to eat. Scrambled eggs, green tripe, raw mince etc. If he still isn't interested, try adding some egg to the milk he does like, or mixing some meat with the nutrition paste. It is very important to get him eating or he will continue to have attacks of hypoglycemia. You can also try grinding the dry kibbles into a powder and adding hot water to make a soft paste. I would be more concerned about getting any food into him right now, worry about the texture later.

I am in china now, i dont really trust the vets here, went to visit a vet and done all the tests for parvo, cdv.. Everythings good. And the vet said nothing much he said that this pup is too small not easy to take care of, suggest me to rather give it up than waste time and money on it. Ensuring that it will not survive long in this cold winter weather and asked me if i would be interested to buy his poodle which i got to know that it just survived parvo and was actually them who suggest the actual owner to put it to peaceful death, and the owner gave it to them to do so, now they treated the poodle and want to sell it to me. But i'll try the methods to feed it, this baby needs alot of nutrition, sighs*

Get him to a vet immediately. Seizures can be life threatening.

He needs to see a vet. Also, what kibble are you feeding?

The kibble is from china as i am now residing in china, the vet here aint trustworthy. Scrambled eggs must be cooked with oil isnt it, is it healthy for the pup? This pup is active on day one and runs around now he looks so down and keep sticking to me and wanna sleep on my lap like a quiet girl.

Scrambled eggs do not need to be made with oil. You can scramble them totally on their own or add a drop of milk, very simple.
