So my pup Walker (10 weeks now) has had some eating issues. The other day I noticed her eating less. Then a little less the next day. Then almost nothing the next day. Getting a little concerned I went and bought a recommended yummy-er brand to try. She still barely ate either. By this time you could physically see a difference of her getting thinner. So becoming more and more worried I adapted a homemade dog food recipe for her. Finally she has started eating again. She seems to like it and already looks better after a day and a half.
So now I'm wondering a few things. Are any of your gsp's (adult or pup) picky eaters?Also, because one of the thigs she didn't seem to like was the crunchy food, im thinking maybe it's just teething pains bothering her ? And that's why she likes tthe soft food I made her ?
Also if I keep feeding her this yummy food ( I even thought it smelt good...) will she be spoiled to eat regular food later
on?..... I wil ask my vet about it cos i hav apt Monday for booster shots anyway
Just some thoughts iv had.
I had the same problem, my guy was also looking a little thin . I tried wetting the food with water and he liked it at first but it didn't do much.
What I did was add some olive oil to his food and he loved it. it's also great for their coat.
It's just teething, don't worry about it. If you make the food smellier though (like with olive oil) they'll eat more even if they're teeth hurt.
By 11 weeks, he was finishing bowls without the olive oil.
