I recently got a puppy and she won't eat her food or drink water. I gave her a fourth of the little Ceaser's wet food she tried eating it but lost interest, I tried giving her water and she didn't pay any attention to it even when I dipped my finger in the bowl. Do you think I should give her puppy milk instead?

Puppy milk - whatever it takes - possibly it's too young to be away from it's mum. Try soaking cereal in warm milk & once soft try to feed her. Buy a special animal syringe feeder & squeeze warm puppy milk directly into her mouth. If in doubt please contact a vet as being this young it will go down hill fast & possibly die.
Please help her.
She was taken from mother too soon. I'd get canned baby formula and read directions as to dilution or not. Serve at room temp or slightly warmed by sitting container in hot bowl of water.I saved a baby bunny that way, using a dropper.
My dog had a litter of pups 6 weeks ago Saturday and now a few of them are not eating or drinking water. We dewormed them and one pooped worms and is doing fine, but now the other 2 males are getting sick.
Are they not still nursing any? If they are, they maybe getting their food fine. If not, call the vet asap.
