Hey,

Lexi seems to have gone off her breakfast, even after adding a little puppy meat. She's only 13 weeks, so I want to encourage her to keep eating this. Any ideas?

Thanks

Hey,

We have had to encourage Lex with all her meals today.
She's totally left her 3rd meal. Her poos are normal & she is fine in herself. We're feeding her amount as on packaging! I'm concered cos she's only a baby. Should I be?

It may just be that she's not hungry and not needing a 3rd meal anymore. Amounts on packaging are generally a rough guide and can differ for each dog, you will learn to gauge what is a good amount for her yourself as time goes on.

Keep an eye on her, as long as she keeps drinking and is normal in herself I'd not be too worried, she will eat when she gets hungry ''flowers''

She is drinking fine. She's had more treats as we are training on her recall. She's just ate a bit of her food so I'm not as worried. I was also off work last week, so her routine was interrupted. Normally, I'm out in day & husband is out at night. I'm hoping been back in her normal routine helps gets her back on track.

I'm like a fart, I worry about her too much.

On a plus side, she was great off lead today. Walked at my side all way round field. :)

Thanks again x Flowerssssssss<<<

Laugh<,< I was the same,I was soooo worried to death,as he never really wanted breakfast,from the start! I ve done loads of training with treats though,never even given it another thought about how much the impact it would have on his food intake . . .mixed in loads of yummy things to make him eat and created a rather fussy eater,took me a while and lots of "cute eye avoidance" to get him to eat normally Laugh<,< never underestimate the power of treats LOL::: magic for training,a killer for their appetite Laugh<,<

She wouldn't touch her breakfast again, but she ate all her dinner. She is not a morning dog at all, she does not come round till after 10am. LOL:::

In the wild, dogs fast naturally, once a week is not unusual.
It's us humans that think they need to eat at certain times.
I raw feed mine and Poppy used to fast once a week religiously. Upset me for a bit, but if they are ok, they are ok. If they are hungry they will eat.
She never fasts now with Lennox in the loop :( eating is competition.
But when they've had enough I guess they know.

Fred has never been that fussed with his brekkie even when he was a pup (he's 5 now) so I give him a quarter of a portion for brekkie and he has a huge tea Laugh<,< He's starving by tea time though and if you are a few mins late he comes and nudges you twice with his head in case I've forgotten Laugh<,< Love hearts>?
