    25 days old is very young for a puppy to have left its breeder. I would take him straight to the vets for a check up in case he has one of the very serious conditions like parvovirus. If he's otherwise ok they will be able to advise you on the best food for a puppy who is at an age when he should still be suckling from mum and just beginning to try a little solid food.

    I think he just a little bit stressed because of new environment. sooner or later he will be normal again

    That is really unfortunate, a young dog should not leave his mother at that age as he loses many of the socialization experiences he needs. When he tries to nurse with his sharp teeth, he hurts her, she bites him, and he thus loses bite inhibition. This is something you are going to need to teach him. (Look up articles on bite inhibition training.) A lot of puppies here are sold at one month, and do okay as long as they are adequately socialized with other dogs at their new homes. If not, they become dog aggressive or fearful. Do you have another dog?
    As far as your question goes, Nettlemere is correct in recommending you take te puppy in for a physical exam and to check for worms. It may just be related to the stress, but you should not take that chance. The vet tech will also recommend a puppy food available where you live, and answer any other questions you might have. Make a list of your questions before leaving home so you do not forget once at the vet´s office. Good luck with your new puppy.

    For ALL puppies, an immediate visit to the vet is important.  If a pup is sick, a vet visit is paramount.  This is very young for a pup to be away from mom and the litter.  The so called "breeder" you got him from is obviously not a reputable breeder (sorry, I'm known for being blunt and honest.)  The reputable breeders I know wouldn't let a pup go before 8 to 10 weeks old.

    You've been given good advice by Dr. Mark and Nettlemere. I have a hub on the importance of socializing dogs, and here is the link.  It will give you and idea what socialization is and why it's important. … The-Basics

    Puppies that age can go downhill fast, so do go to the vet ASAP. smile  Good luck.
