Hi

Over the past three days Honey has hardly ate anything.
We have noticed that two teeth (one canine and a smaller one) have dropped out.
Can it be that puppies don't eat so much when their teeth drop?

Thanks in advance

Her mouth is likely sore with teething, very normal. Offer her soft food, scrambled egg and rice or something easy, hang in there and she should pick up and start eating soon.

I work in a vet's office and we frequently have people rush people in for this very problem. Nine times out of ten, their mouth is just sore. If the puppy shows no other sign of illness I would not be concerned. If the type of food you offer does not come in a soft food variety I would recommend soaking the dry food until it is relatively mushy and easy to chew so you do not upset the puppy's stomach by adding new food.
