Q: Why doesn't my food like to eat?

October 7, 2009 | By Ccole44 | 5 answers | Expired: 1736 days ago

Its funny...my dog Orion, 10 months, really doesn't like to eat. I really think he just doesn't like to chew. I am feeding him Nutro Max puppy food. Just like the many other foods I have tried to get him to eat, he likes it at first but then loses interest. I've never seen a dog that didn't like to eat. I have started putting water in his food to encourage eating, which he seems to like, but I don't want him to start to become picky.

Has he been to the vet to make sure all is okay with him? Does his teeth look healthy none loose?
could be just picky. Have you tried mixing it with wet food?
Something you may want to talk to his vet about. good luck!

Sounds like a picky eater to me ( I was there with my dog who is 2yrs now). Not sure where you are located but there is a brand Evangers. They cater to picky eaters but are also very healthy too lol. They use fresh meat in their foods instead of frozen. Heres their web site. www.evangersdogfood.com/

Good Luck!

my dog is the same way and always has been. she's never been motivated by food or even very interested in it besides curbing her hunger and the occasional snack. this can be a blessing and a burden. try mixing your pups food w/some wet food. wet food is usually healthier and it has a richer taste and smell that dogs *usually* can't resist.
