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: Puppy Eating Question   Mon Jul 23, 2012 11:00 am

So Luna is 3 months old now and she shows absolutely no interest in her food. We put it down on the floor and she will take a few bites and walk away. We have her on Blue Wilderness puppy formula, but she has done this with every food we have ever had her try. I'm not sure if I should be worried or not. Sometimes she will drop a bunch in her water and eat them once they get soggy so maybe the food is too hard on her teeth (maybe they are loose or sore?). I also thought of maybe mixing some wet food into her dry food, we used to have to that with our German Shepard. Any ideas?

Try adding a little water to her dry food and let it sit for a little while to soften it some.

That's what we did with Ghost, and it worked really well. Ghost started doing the same thing as she was getting towards teething, so we added just a little bit of warm water not only to soften it, but also to make it smell better.

Loki didn't care for the water in his food. He just didn't like the food I had gotten him (wellness puppy). I have switched (4health) and he is getting better since switching as he seems to like it more.

Even when on the food he didn't like too much, he would eat all of his food if I put in a food toy. This is the one I got: http://www.drsfostersmith.com/product/prod_display.cfm?c=3307+3+20239&pcatid=20239
