Sometimes a new & very small 🐶 will refuse to eat which increases their risk of developing hypoglycemia (low blood sugar).
This condition is life threatening 🏥 in small puppies !
An old trick I learned many years ago is to heat up a prescription diet (Science Diet A/D) for about 5 seconds in the microwave to help release the diet’s flavor & aroma.
Puppies have a hard time refusing this tasty prescription diet that is high in calories. This is often just what these puppies need to help jumpstart their appetite 🍽 !
