Eating problem

Postby NYPDiddy » Mon Jun 20, 2011 8:04 am

since i got lexi 2 months ago i have been feeding her at 730 am and 730 pm. The second i put the food down she scarfs it down. The last few days she has been eating all of her food but it sits in her bowl all day. Is this normal?

My girl does that by the time she gets through half the 40lb bag of kibble. I have to change up her protein source every 2-3 months or so. But everytime, its the same thing...

Chase does this sometimes too. I think he gets sick of the kibble..lol. He gets people food and then the occasional chicken breasts with veggies or something. If he doesn't eat in the morning then set the bowl up for the day and put it down again at dinner. And don't add anything delicious to it. Eventually, your pup will eat.

If eating stops all together, I'd make a vet appointment.

Just a guess, but I'd say that could be it. Since she is turning her nose up at it until she is really hungry later on in the day. She is eating, so that is good. When Chase starts getting the taste of too much good stuff, he'll start turning his nose up at his kibble. Then we have to cut off any outside stuff and it's a strict diet until he eats his food again.

She isn't puking or anything? Her poop is normal?

Agrreed. I dont change the protein source for flavor, i change it up for her mineral needs. I would avoid making her food fancy too - she needs to learn kibble is good as is.

If she doesn't eat it all pick the dish back up, don't leave it out all day.

:goodpost:

Put the dish down for 10-15 minutes. If it isn't gone by that time, put it away and offer it to her again later.
