Try a good quality food, the best you can afford. Cheaper food contains lots of fillers which are not very appetising to a dog.
My Banjo use to be that way! And it was really bad because when he didn´t eat he would through up this yellow stuff! We started mixing some rice and a little bit of cheese in there and sometimes even a little bit of warm meat or even hotdog! This really got his attention! Now he is eating all his food and when Bella doesn´t finish hers he helps himself to hers to!! Good luck!!
That happens to Bruno also kdm, it´s yellow bile from him being too
hungry. But even though he would be hungry, he doesn´t love eating
in the morning for some reason. Then his irritable bowel would act
up and make things extra noisy in his tummy.
I grate a teeny amount of parmesan cheese on his food in the morning and he can´t resist the smell, eats it all up !
Spinfan- The same thing happens to Ravy. We got him on a natural
food called "Fresh Pet Select". He now eats! lol Even in the
morning when he doesn't want to eat at all he can't resist the
smell. He'll slowly drag himself out of bed to eat & then hop
back in bed. ^-^ Hell, this stuff has boosted his apetite to where
he will actually eat his dry food. No more tummy growls all night
& no more running outside at 2-3am to throw up.
Oh that is great news bunnehdeo ! Now that Bruno has been on Natural Balance for over a year, he loves his breakfast time and there hasn't been any throwing up, borgrygmi, or diarreaha, at all. He actually gained weight so we had to regulate things and now he's the perfect weight and so healthy ! yippeee
I used to feed my dogs just dry dog food but after all the scare of tainted dog food, I've changed their diet now for 2 years. I picked this up from someone on the internet which I thought was really good.
my dog wont eat dog food is there anything i can do to get him to eat it?
One of my dogs tend to be a little more picky about his dry dog food more than normal but I have found if you add a bit of low-sodium chicken stock to his food he gobbles it right up. Plus adding liquid to dry dog food helps them get the extra water that dry food doesn't contain.
None of my dogs I have ever had ate more than half of the recommended amount. I think that these amounts are grossly overstated for the average pet. I feed half cup dry terrier meal with a third of a large can (the cans are approx. 380-400g) of wet food in the morning and then in the evening a half cup of of complete dry food. This is perfectly adequate for a medium size dog, who is indoors most of the time. Feeding a mixed diet like that stops the dog getting fed up with the same thing all the time. A large dog like a German Shepherd would eat about twice as much i.e. 2 cups of dry food plus some wet food or meat per day. I have no experience of small dogs, but I tend to think that they are usually overfed and bored with a monotonous diet.
