I have had Poppy for almost 4 weeks now and have been feeding her 4 times a day, as I understand you are supposed to do with pups. I have been giving her Pedigree puppy food, which she seemed to like.
Anyway, the last two days, she has been rather indifferent to her food. When we get up in the morning, I put her food out and she sniffs maybe takes a bite or two and then goes off to play! Shouldnt she be ravenous first thing?
I give her food spaced out about 4-5 hours in between and she hardly finishes it..I give her about two good tablespoons full each time.
Can anyone clarify for me how much they are supposed to be eating (she is 14 weeks old on friday) and why she suddenly seems less interested?
Also she is FULL of energy and very lively and playful, I am just hysterical that she isnt eating enough! Any help with this greatly appreciated!

Thanks for the help guys! I am worried even though she is still lively and seems happy..today I gave her breakfast and she didnt go near it. Then she had 2-3 mouthfuls about 11am. I am purposely not giving treats at the moment because I want to monitor just how much she is eating of the "right" food. In any case we are off to the vet tomorrow so i will mention it to him...thanks again for your replies! :)
