Sorry it’s rather tmi but I’m a first time puppy owner and a little worried.

We’ve had our 9 week old puppy a week ago. There was basically no advice from feeding from the breeder who basically put out a jug for 11 pups and just fed more if they seemed hungry. We had to play a bit of a guessing game and I feel awful but I think for the first 3/4 days we may have been underfeeding. In the garden she kept trying to eat stokes, grass, dirt everything. Wednesday I thought she swallowed a stone, called vet who said to keep an eye and see if it passed which it did. We also upped her food and the obsessive eating in the garden has stopped since then.

However, now these last 2 days her stools have been soft. Not diarrhoea but soft. Could this simply be her body getting used to the increase in food? Not sure if increasing food would do that or not...

I know that no one can tell me for sure but she’s otherwise in good form. Sleeps fine, doesn’t seem sore or uncomfortable, active, eats and drinks fine. We do have a nutrition consultation with the Vetinary nurse on Monday and if it’s not improved I’ll bring it up then but I thought I would seek out some advice in the meantime just to see if it could simply be the food or not...
