You really should be looking at some dog food that is light on stomach A lot of people are taken in by brand names thinking it has to be good when it often isn't. Did you mention to the vet what gspdad said in a previous post that might be causing the problem?

weebit, this is great news!!! You are doing a great job with her. I'm sure she will be up to her proper weight by the time she has to return for her follow up visit at the vet. Thanks for keeping us updated!

Great news. You should wean her off the milk as quickly as you can. At 3 months, she is fast losing the enzyme needed to process milk, and it will soon start causing diarrhea and indigestion. I know you know someone who feeds fish to their pups, but this is NOT a good primary protein source for puppies, no matter that the person who feeds this is a breeder. Your pup needs a complete, nutritionally-dense puppy food, fed in sufficient quantities to support growth for about 9 more months. Arden Grange and Burns both make good puppy foods, and Orijen's puppy food is among the best available in terms of nutritional density vs calcium : phosphorus ratio.

Sounds like you are getting things in hand. Get her appetite restarted and get rid of the parasites and a steady supply of good food - nature will put her straight.

When we switch foods, we mix them together old and new. Gradually adding more new. Maybe this would help too.
