For the most part I believe that puppies will eat what they need, and will not overeat. What about undereating (is that a word)? Our 16 month old Mini Dachshund has the opposite problem. She isn't eating hardly anything, and to our surprise has grown an inch in length! She is not losing weight, and acts normally in every other way (energy level, playful, etc.). When she was growing on a weekly basis, she ate up to 2 cups/day. Now she is eating 1/4-1/2 a cup/day. Should I be concerned? We have a checkup scheduled with her Vet next week, yet I would like to hear your opinion.
