Hello all, I have never been on a forum but Im gonna give it a shot since we are losing our minds here with our 10 week old chihuahua not eating any dog food. We stayed strict and offered many different types of dog food from ground to sliced (hell some of it my husband says looks good enough for us to eat). Anyway our little Peanut won't eat. I offered hard food science diet, beneful, and even Evo which was highly recommended for picky dogs....no luck. I worry she not only isnt getting the proper nutrition but the vet says she should eat often to prevent other health issues little ones can have. Thanks in advance Keli
the first thing, is to stop giving her people food. I like Innova or merrick. Both have wonderful canned food. Mix some canned in with a bit of dry if you like, but I wouldn't just use canned. It isn't very enticing. The merrick dry you can add warm water to and it makes a gravy.
If nothing else have some nutra cal or karo syurp so your baby doesn't go into suger shock, but she will eventually eat. You just have to out last her.
When one of my shar-pei chooses not to eat I just add bacon grease to their food. They love it I give it to my female every few days for her skin and coat as she has so many food and environmental allergies. Cooked eggs, or tuna water also work but I prefer to stick to bacon grease as much as possible.
