What are some alternative ways to make puppies eat?

My puppies don;t want to eat.

Try mixing in wet food with dry food. If that doesn't work try boiling some all white chicken meat. Shred it and try hand feeding it to them. If they can turn chicken meat down, your puppies may be ill and need to see a vet.

Depending on age, their teeth and mouths may still be sensitive. First, make sure you are giving them a nutritious puppy chow. A lot of them are full of fillers and grain which dogs don't need. Try soaking the food in warm chicken broth for a few minutes before giving it to them so it softens.

The first thing to do is to rule out any health problems by having a vet examine the pups. If nothing is wrong with the health of the puppies, patience is probably the cure. Try different foods and hand feeding for awhile. Provide a calm atmosphere for feedings.

Try switching their food. They may just not like it. You can put natural Chicken Broth over the food. Or you can try Nutri-cal supplement for puppies.

If they're bottle fed the nipple may need a bigger hole, they could be tired from suckling and nothing coming out. For puppies on solid food, try a holistic food.
