I have a papillon 6yrs old and will not eat anything. I have tried dry to wet to the last resort human . She will eat it once then will not touch it again she has gone three day now with no food just water note: a bowl of water is always on hand. I am a new owner Can anyone give some advise ? Thx
How soon after she refuses the food are you offering something new? I would go to a high quality kibble (not something bland like Ol Roy) and offer it. If the dog does not eat within 20 minutes, pick it up. Wait a few hours before offering the food again (same food not a new item). Seems she knows if she refuses one thing, more choices are coming so she can pick and choose what she wants. She will not starve herself to death. Once you contimue the routine and she realizes what you offered is what she gets, she will eat.
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It is about learning to dance in the rain.
