Will only eat honey
I have a rescue/foster boxer pup about 10-12 weeks old. She was super active for about 3 weeks and then quit eating and started losing weight. She is a sack of bones. She drinks somewhat and might nibble at wet food.
When she first started this I was told to rub a small amount of honey on her gums. Now all she wants to eat is honey, no I do not give it to her all the time, but when I do she tries to take my finger off getting it. Please help!
You really need to have this little girl examined by your veterinarian just as soon as possible as I think she is sick. It's not normal for a puppy to lose weight in this way and my first guess would be an infection of some sort, quite possibly a parasitic one.
If she wasn't eating at all when she was tiny, then a little honey could help raise her blood sugar but it's definitely not something I would continue doing. It's not going to help in this situation.
It could also be that she has a food intolerance or some other problem, but I think an infection is more likely. However, I'm not a veterinarian and you definitely need a professional evaluation here. If she doesn't start eating properly her health is in serious jeopardy.
I wish you the best of luck and hope that you can get to the bottom of what's causing her problems so that she can grow up big and strong.
