Any more advice please, I did post on the puppy support thread.

We have had pup 5 days, still struggling with feeding her.
weaned on purina proplan puppy kibble food. recommended to use about 200g/day split up in 4 meals.
not interested in it dry, have been wetting with chicken stock (fresh/no salt), did eat a little but again lost interest.
she has good spurts of energy and appears happy but is hungry, rumbling tum, why won't she eat?
have tried using flat plate/even on floor, sit with her, no distractions.
is weeing ok and pooing regularly but this is sometimes loose and DD says last one had a bit of blood in it.
currently sleeping at my feet, this is worse than feeding human babies.
should i be doing anything else?

If there was blood in her poo, I would take her to the vet.

Please take her the vet just to check that she is ok. Blood in poop coupled with her not eating needs to be checked.

update she is fine, it wasn't blood and has a fab appetite for real food. looking to move to raw, has vacs on Monday so will discuss with vet.

Glad she is ok.

Springers in my experience aren't food motivated. But they Obvs need to ear.
