Unhappy Picky Puppy

I have a 13 week old shih poo who ate her food every time she was fed. The vet told me to feed her 3 times a day. She eats puppy food that I get from the vets. She has just recently become very picky. To the point that I have to feed her by hand. I am so scared that she isnt eating like she used to. Does anyone have any ideas as to what I can do. She stills drinks and plays like a puppy. I love her so much.

It could be that now she prefers to be fed by hand and knows you will do it, so she's "trained you". I've been told dogs will eat if they get hungry enough, so I would go back to letting her eat regularly. Both of mine have gone through phases where they didn't seem to want to eat, and phases where they couldn't seem to eat enough. Don't stress! She will be okay!

I personally do not think the dog food you buy at the vets is the great and I had two dogs that agreed with me and did not like. A vet told she think the food it junk too. I was surprise to hear the vet say that , but I did appreciated the vet honesty .
