Pepper is almost 6 months old. I have always fed her Eukanuba Puppy food. For the past 3 days she has refused to eat it unless I put something on it like peanut butter, raw egg or yogurt. SHe will eat what I put ON the food, just not the food. Should I switch her food?
These two replies so far are awesome ideas. I do not recall who said this before on the website but it was around these lines. "I have never heard of a Corgi choosing to starve itself." Pretty much regardless of how picky your pup may be, she will eventually eat what you give her.
But you sound like me, you are constantly making sure your little pup is alright. I myself am nit picking what my dog does and wonder if I am teaching him bad habits.
I wouldn't keep adding things to her food. She is learning that if she holds out, you might give her something better. I'd put a little warm water in the kibble to get the smell going, and if she doesn't eat it in 20 minutes pick it back up.
Sheldon was on the Prescription Hill Healthy advantage for puppy for about 3 month. Last week he refuse to eat the food except if we hand feed him. Since hand feeding is not an option I decided to switch his food for Medical Royal canine puppy and he LOVE'S IT !!!! Also the freshness of the food plays a big part in the puppy liking it or not ! I think switching or getting a fresh bag could help , dont forget to do a transition to avoid gastro-intestinal problem like muchy poop ! If the eating doesn't start again get her check out at the vet :) Best of luck ^^
Hi I had a Rottweiler who stopped eating her food,turned out she was teething and the food was too hard for her to chew, so you could try adding some water and let it soak in before feeding,also we did change her food for awhile to smaller puppy kibble. If those don't work you could ask your vet I'm sure they would be able to help.....Jeanne good luck :)
