New Puppy's Appetitie June 11, 2014, 11:44 am

        Our pup is a  9 week old teddy bear and I was wondering if I have to feed her during the night and for how many days, alternatively I could leave the food in the crate during the night, is that good?

Answer:

        if she eats well within an hour of bedtime it is okay to just leave a little food in the cage overnight.  If her appetite before bedtime is not particularly good then you should check on her after 4 hours overnight to be sure she eats something to avoid hypoglycemia.  Once she has shown that she will eat regularly during the day for 5-7 days in a row then you do not need to worry about the overnight.
