My dog is by far one of the most pickiest eatter I possibly have ever seen. I adopted him about 4 months ago from the Humanes Society, he is a Carin Terrier. He is a little over a year old. I have tried him on all different brands of food (Nutro, Science Diet, Wellness and now he is currently on Natural Balance)...I have mixed his food with chicken I made, scrambled egg, chicken soup, cerael, water (heating it up to make the food a little soft) etc. I really want to keep him on hard food so that his teeth does not get bad. He doesnt like soft food, doesnt like hard food, doesnt like much of anything. He had an allergic reaction to Nutro and had a cortizone (sp?) shot. I am just dont understand what more I can do to get him to eat. I do not keep the food down all day (I am trying to train him so that he eats once a day and the food in only there for 30min). My question is: Do you recommend any good brand of dog food? Treats? Anything to put in the dog food? Please help me.
I have a Cairn Terrier that eats anything! I am sorry about your's not eating. How old is he? We have had Harvey since he was weaned. Right now he eats Science Diet small bites. That is all we give him and occasional small treats from the table. (I know we shouldn't do that, but he is just adorable when he puts his head on your leg... : )
We have a Cairn turning one, next month. My in-laws have a 9 year old Cairn. Both very picky eaters. We always leave a bowl of dry dog food out at all times. Then at dinner we make them a dish of people food and Beneful mixed. Some days they won't eat at all. Other days they'll turn their noses to the dinner and just eat the dry food. Either way, they won't go hungry. They may eat more one day than they will the next. Best advice, don't worry. They are hardy and brilliant, they know when they need to eat.
