I would change her food and yes, use a cheeze grater for some apple mixed on the dry with a little bit of water.

Consider changing to some premium brands that have fruit in its ingredients.

Another suggestion is to grate a bit of cheeze on their dry food. If this does not work, take your dog to the vet.

It is often normal for dogs ~ small especially ~ not to eat the same amount everyday.
Dogs will eat less if there is alot of activity in your household to distract them the important thing is if she acts happy and healthy don't worry about this behavior.

When I fist brought my dog, Piper, home from the shelter she barely ate at all. I went trhough three different brands of foods before I finally figured out what she liked best. Then, even though she would eat a few bites, she wouldn't eat as much as a normal dog. And she's a lab - they eat everything! The solution, I found, was to add some water to the food so that the consistency changed. That gradually evolved to me adding VitaGravy (sold at pet food stores), chicken or beef broth, or wet dog food to the kibble to get her to eat it. Now she scarfs it down and loves it!! Hope that helps you!!Good luck.
