before I call Chairmoo @greene66 let me say somethings. firstly has the pup vaccinated and dewormed? deworming goes a long way it helps with appetite and proper growth. another thing I would like to add or ask is that has the pup started eating solid food before yu picked it? and please endeavor to feed your pup with high quality kibble(dry food) if yu want it to grow but 1 thing I have noticed is that most pups don't really like kibbles. personally I start with can food mix with kibbles for a little period and I gradually transition to kibbles.


@greene66 please come and add to it this is GSD related. thanks

Op, do you know Nutritola? Give it a try. It works magic. Mix it with fish(Match the fish so the pup doesn't select it out)

However, it is necessary you feed at least 2 times a day in full. Morning & Night. You can feed some canned food + dry food mixed together in the morning & Nutritola mixed with fish at night till morning and the food should be served cold.

Multivitamins & other supplements such as boosters should not be ignored. Do you know B + E? (Vetzyme) Its a good multivitamin solution for your puppy. Give once a day(1 tablet), preferably at night. The others like the pet booster can be given after every meal. A single cap is okay for the puppy. You should also have a lot of time for your pup. Engage your pup in some fun. Make it happy. Sometimes, peace of mind is also a supplement on its own.

Finally, Vaccinations and timely deworming is important to ensure your pup develops into a fine and charming dog and you should also know that a new GSD puppy may be skeptical and shy for the first 4 weeks which will make it avoid food so you should try to pet your puppy and reassure him/her whenever you feed. You can even hand feed for the first 4 weeks

My 2 cents.

@rumenase i see you bro.. cool

Thank you very much everyone for your contributions.
1. I've Deworm and Vaccinate the puppy when she was 4weeks
2. I've not been feeding her with solid food, but just this week now i realized she's now eating well, she's now eaten Golden Morn with little milk, also Indomie with egg, but only collecting it from myself or my son only.

But I'll also include the above stated feeding method

Here is her picture as at Yesterday, that she clock 6weeks old

But my question is, do u think she's growing well

There is no picture, try uploading it again....

Golden morn is just a waste of money with liltle benefit to the dog, I advice you stick with indomie and egg and feed her a lot of carrots .... Mix carrots with her meal, as she is still liltle boil the carrots until it is soft and plum then let it cool!

Also mix 1calcium pill in her water 3times a week.
