Have you dewormed ur pup regularly. They generally put on weight later and can also have a problem of too much weight too as they become older. Speak to a vet.

What Dinkarji has said is absolutely right. Worms are the main culprit for most problems in dogs. Regarding food, Royal canin is standard one. Better to avoid Pedigree.

Hi Kajal, I believe you giving her the perfect brand of food she deserves. Please tell me what was her exact age when you had brought her home? It’s commonly been seen that many irresponsible breeders sell of the pups’ way before they complete their weaning period and lie to the buyers about their age. I have actually encountered a case as such where a pug pup was sold to a buyer saying that it was 2 ½ months old but it’s actual age was lesser than a month. In such a case it’s found that the pug looks malnourished even after been given an appropriate diet. Though there is not much to worry about since eventually your puppy will gain approximately the right shape and size with the right care. I would suggest you to consult a good vet and ask him suggestions about the proper quantity of quality of diet you should offer your girl and also ask him if you would need to put in any special multivitamin or calcium supplement to her dite .

Hi Kajal,
I’m glad you have taken some good decisions for your girl. Yes, your vet was right when he has asked you to avoid Milk and chappati or roti in from his dite. Since its been observed that a lot from this particular breed are allergic to milk and milk products and even wheat based eatables. My dog is allergic to both mentioned above and unfortunately it took me really long before I got the right cause of my boy’s constant skin disorder. When all the local vets were pushing down some real strong & expensive antibiotics down his throat suspecting a bacterial infection or mange. My boy was finally relived of his skin disorder after completely cutting down chapatti and milk from his diet.

As you have mentioned that your girl was brought home at an real tender age of 45 days (which is completely unacceptable since the pup needs to be with her mom at least till he/she is 2 or 2.5 months old. It’s expected the pup to have the kind of disorders and are more prone to allergies. I always advice to keep the puppy on a strict royal canine diet for the first 6 months in your case a minimum of 8 months .You may divide the course into 3 or 4 times a day. And only after he completes his six months in your case 8 months you can cut down her meal to 2 times a day (ie. and early lunch and dinner) giving him royal canine in one course and chicken rice in second. I feel Advance NurtiCoat is a very good supplement you are giving your girl and would advice you to continue with it.

Kajal I would like you to keep a little patience with your puppy since she may react to all that you give her a little late than usual (please blame it on your breeder who is the real culprit). Frequent shedding in the first year isn’t uncommon in this breed) you would see a more stable coat on your girl only after she crosses the first year or a little extra. I would also advice you to give you girl a light coconut oil massage before you take her for a wash.
The right way to go about with it would be-
Take some oil (enough to properly cover her whole body from head to tail) add a little bit of camphor to it (camphor help to avoid basic skin disorders he may suffer coz of mites and other microorganism). Properly give her a massage in a reverse direction so that the oil could reach the skin. Let her be for a minimum of 2 hours or you may also do the process the previous night (only if you not too bothered bout your pup dirtying your home with oil stains). Do not take your dog out in the sun after you have applies the oil. Later you can give her a wash with a conditioner-based shampoo.

Kajal the best thing you can give you pup is home cooked food.......you know what??? giving pups...market foods like pedigree or royal canin will later can coz problems...like.....kidney failure ,heart disease or other major disease.......you can best ask your vet....or you can watch every saturday on National Channel 6.30 pm Pet Care ...the vets....give you best guide for your pet......and they have suggested...to not give market pet food to your dog...and now it is..rainy season....so donot give non-veg to you pup.....best is give him milk+dalia, or milk+ roti....this will increase it's weight as well as ....he will feel satisfied after eating it..and will get healthier....take care of your pup...as much as you can.....tc

I also agree that homemade food is a very good option. However, few dogs are allergic to milk. Be sure that your dog has no problem in digesting milk.
