Well thanks to the advice I have received here we are much happier with our food now.
Allie is eating 80grams of burns puppy mini (Not soaked or she won't eat it) with a very small amount of any wet food.

As she is now 2kg I think that is enough food. It would be good to hear if there is anything else to consider

Hello and thank you.

We are getting there, I think i was expecting her to eat more than she does.

Dottie,

I have been soaking the feed but I didn't crumble it. I will give that a try. Thank you.

The vet says she is perfectly healthy and said she is still settling in so just persevere with the feeding routine and she will start to eat more.

They weighed her there and she is 2kg and that is about right.

Thanks for all the information and warm welcomes.

I'm stil processing the options as I was advised not to change her diet too much at first but getting her to eat is difficult with anything that's good for her?
One of the things the breeder said to me was he would give her whatever she would eat listed in the original post?
The dry food he used and I'm trying is burns puppy mini. Now I have reviewed it in this site it maybe isn't th best but getting her to eat something is a challenge.
To give you some perspective, I have been advised by my very helpful local pet supply shop that she should be eating about 100g but she may eat 25-30g in one meal then nothing else for the rest of the day? Also not drinking much water either. All that said she seems happy and full of energy?

We have our vet appointment in the morning so maybe they will put my mind to rest

Hi everyone,

2 days ago we welcomed a beautiful little beddy to our home. She is very shy and a selective eater. The breeder was feeding her anything from rice pudding, weetabix to wet and dry food.
These options havent helped with feeding as she will only eat certain foods at certain times of day?

i looked at some of the foods here and hoped you may have suggestions for me.

I look forward to your replies

Mark
