Help with Jack Russell Puppy
by Cody White
I just got a 7 week old Jack from my sister.
She weaned him off of his mother a week ago.
And began feeding them soft and chewy Purina puppy food.
I just got him 3 days ago, and decided to feed him IAMS puppy food. He has been slowly picking at it, and not eating much. And he started doing something a couple times a day. He'd go into like, a dry heaving fit. Like he was trying to get something up, but nothing would come up. I mixed in some water with the food to make it softer, and he chowed down on it today. But he threw up a little bit of it just then. What could be causing these dry heaves ? And should I try something different with the food ? Also, this morning, his gums were really white. But when he ate his bowl of food, about a 1/4 to a 1/2 cup, they started turning a little pink. I just wanna ask around before I take him to the vet, so maybe I won't have to.
