Won't eat out his bowl

Postby LouDiamondz » Wed Mar 16, 2011 8:12 am

The past 3 or 4 days now Buddah refuses to eat out of his bowl. He'll eat if I hand feed him and thats about it. I haven't switched his bowls, I've tried cleaning them, and even adding a bit of water to the food, and he just wont eat unless I hand feed him. Any suggestions? I dont want him to think he eats out of my hand so HELP ASAP PLEASE!!! lol

That's not such a bad thing, aside from the inconvenience.

Does he wear a collar when he eats? Have you tried changing the bowl's material (ie, if it was metal, the new one is plastic, or vice versa)? Have you tried changing its position - if it was on the floor, try raising it, if it was raised, put it on the floor.

I had that problem and a few members here just told me to put the bowl down and if she doesn't want to eat it take the food away then try again later. Eventually your dog will be hungry enough that it will start eating. My dog started to eat at the end of the day finally.
