I have a beautiful toy poodle named belle that i have been having a problem with,see she wont eat and if she does shell eat one kibble at a time.We have tried mixing kibble and wet food together and she starts to eat only the wet food and then stops. I then tried giving her wet food alone and she got diarrhia. I also have a kitten named rufus, and belle loves to eat his food and vise-versa is cat food bad for dogs and what can i do to get belle to eat her own food.
Sometimes i mix oatmeal or salmon or apples in Titos food. Hes picky about his food and he only eats a few kibble at a time. And unlike most dogs Tito chews his food. Try adding some of the thing i mentioned and mix it in good. With apples i slice them up. Make sure not to give your dog the apple core! its toxic to dogs. I also add boiled liver too every now and then. good luck!
My mom's poodle does the same thing. She tries every brand known to man and then pawns off the extra stuff on my big mutt who will eat anything. She's always sending us home with a bag that the little picky boy won't eat. I know he is very fond of Little Caesar right now. But that might not last for long. He hates anything with gravy on it but if you pick out the chunks for him, he will eat those. Sometimes she even feeds him the dry piece by piece just to get him to eat. Cat food is a delicacy for almost all dogs. Hers will dance for a bit of it. Even my big mutt goes crazy for it. But it's not very good for them. We always fed the cat someplace he couldn't get to. Gotta love my big mutt. He'll eat anything although I don't allow him to have much besides his regular Purina One. Good luck with your picky eater!! I know it's hard because you worry they won't get enough in them to be healthy. You would think if they got hungry enough they would just eat.
