actually, 3 months is still very young, u should grind d dog food, and mix with milk or other liquid, then maybe ur pup will eat, d kibble is too hard and maybe too large for her, warm up d food nicely, dun serve cold, make it thick like porridge, not like soup.

wht brand of dog food r u feeding?

jz chicken and hot dog, nutritionally looks like its not enuff for a 3 mnth old pup.

forgot to add, u can soak the kibbles, mash it to become gruel, control the consistency by addin more liquid, to be like porridge, and warm it up nicely.

thanks for your advise but i tried soaking the kibbles before but she just dont like them soft. she sometime eat the kibbles if she was able to get the kibbles at the right spot in inside her mouth where she can bite it (u knowlah her teeth is not fully developed yet) sometime i just get frustrated and think dont feed her at all until she is really hungry. but then cannot tahan when she look at me sadly and i give her something to eat. then she eat a little and then stop. sometime i think she was trying her authority

not just soak the kibble n' giv it to him, of cos he won't wana eat it if he is fussy.

have u seen human infant eat the neslac baby food, try to make it like that with the kibble.

the puppy is used to drink milk, so u start with plain milk first, put some milk in a saucer, let it lick until habis,

then u put some soaked kibble, that u have mashed until like nestum, into the milk, mix it nicely n' warm add lil, let him get used to the taste, then slowly add more in each meal,

small puppies can eat many times a day.

this is all i could think of...

i remember when my mutts are pups, i used the grinder to grind kibbles into granules form, then bancuh it like nestum for them....
