Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Another picky husky   Tue Jun 11, 2013 8:39 pm

Hello. I switched my dog's food to Acana Adult Dog from a ..lower quality kibble, and she stopped eating. She only eats when she is hungry(around 7-9PM). I made her a bit picky, seeing how I always added a bit of wet dog food. She was really excited to see me add the extra ingredient, but now she won't even smell the food. She will eat only when she is hungry, but I want to feed her on schedule. I go for a long run every morning and evening with her, and I want her to be in top shape. Seeing how she eats less, she sometimes will run slower.

She isn't sick; she is a very playful and active 2 years old husky.

Anyways, I don't mind adding extra goodies to her food, but I want them to be healthy. I tried adding chicken liver and she likes it. I'm afraid I won't have liver in my freezer always.
I tried adding milk and she liked it also, but I know she can get worms from milk. I add just a bit of milk (a few spoons), so I hope it won't be a problem. I guess what I want to ask is: what unharmful ingredient should I add to her food? And is the milk harmful in anyway? scratch I want something other than wet dog food.
Thanks.

Have you considered Adding vegies to her food I add baby carrots to my dogs food. Green beans and snow peas are also okay and are good for them. I also add salmon oil and my male loves it in his food. Craisins are okay also NOT Raisns. Craisins are dry cranberry and they are good for them... Yogurt is also good for dogs but milk really isn't from what I have read.

I guess she just likes her food to be a bit moist, but still crunchy.
Thanks, I'll try those :d

I personally don't like feeding extras on top because I think it makes them even pickier :p But I agree that adding egg on top would be a yummy topper lol. I was just thinking though that because she is eating a better quality food, there probably isn't as many fillers (can't be sure without knowing the brand) and so she doesn't actually need to eat as much anymore Smile

I added some salmon oil for her first meal of the day and some yogurt for the second one. No complaints there.

Sounds like a plan.  The salmon oil is good for their coats and joints.  The yogurt is good for digestive systems.
