Pup inhales food
Hello. I am new to the site as well as a new chihuahua puppy owner. He is a Chihuahua and shizthu (sp) mix. He is 8 weeks old. I feed him a wet puppy food by NaturalLife. the problem is, is that when he eats, he eats it so fast he ends up 'crying'. I'm assuming he eats so fast that it enters his stomach painfully. I do not feed him dry food simply because I am afraid he will choke on it the way he eats. I have had him for about two weeks and this has been a problem from day one. He also eats 4 times a day a little over a tablespoon probably. He is less than one pound. What can I do? the only thing I can think of is hand feeding him but he tends to try to eat my fingers. He eats as if he is STARVING. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!
