ok, my year old male (I have posted several times before about his eating habits) Is a picky eater, I have played with several brands and feeding techniques. And finally settled on feeding Innova with some boiled burger and rice mixture. And of course he eats now, not as easily as say my sisters female whom gobbles her food down. But he eats! I have grown to just live with his "finickiness" What does it hurt, right?
THEN I got a female a week ago. When she first cam home, she gobbled up her food, I was relieved she was not going to give me the run around Walk does, then a few days later, it happened! She is being picky!!! I put food in her crate, the bowl is always full by this I mean she never touches it? I tried feeding her 1 cup A.M and 1 cup P.M. as the breeder suggested, at first she would eat it all, now I am lucky if she eats a fourth of it. I keep her on a lead with me at ALL times, so I keep a dish of food with us as we wander, incase she gets hungry. since she really is not eating much......
Am I the one creating the monsters?
Willow came to me as a very healthy solid (I mean solid) girl. She is going to make her conformation debut this summer, I cant have her not eating!
What am I doing wrong? there is no way she could go from a gobbler to a picky pooh?
Could it be the fact her and Walk always have a chew bone, does that tell their brain not to eat? Or does a small amount of Innova really sustain them and fill them up? Its to soon to tell if she is loosing weight!! And Walker is "very healthy" according to my vet.
ALL THOUGHTS ARE WANTED AND APPRICIATED !!! thanks guys!
I forgot to add! today all she ate was maybe 10 kibbles, of a mixture of Innova sm breed pup and Euk. sm breep pup
