hello Sam :-)
Queenie gets 3 to 5 treats a day. Do you think thats to many treats to give in one day? I usually give small milkbones or small heart shaped treats from the petco treat bar.
Rosie did this about a year ago. Rosie, the food inhaler, was on a diet food. She was on her second bag of it and suddenly refused her food but seemed to feel fine. She too guarded it from her brother. I was going to tough her out and wait for her to eat. I went out of town and left the hubby to care for the dogs. He was OK with her not eating for a couple of days but then called and said he was on his way to town to buy some crapo brand of dog food. I steered him to a better food. He got it and brought it home. She scarfed it down. I really think something was wrong with the food and she knew it and wouldn't eat it. She had never refused to eat and never has since then. Could be that Queenie doesn't like something about the food and this is the only way she can tell you. Dogs don't get bored with their food in spite of what we think. I'd get rid of the bag you are feeding and try a fresh bag. Be sure to check the date. The date on Rosie's bag was way old and I hadn't looked at it when I bought it. I check dates now on the bags.
Oh yes, get her spayed!!
Queenie has always guarded her food from Chico. I usually have to feed Chico outside. She eats her normal treats, but not her food. I checked the dates on the bag and they havent expired. Chico is eating the same food, and he has no problems with it, but then Chico likes to eat anything.
I am making an appointment for Queenie to be spayed after the 4th.
