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.

I'm a bit concerned because for the last week Skye has hardly eaten anything. She's on raw freeflow chicken or tripe mince, and usually it's gone in 20 seconds. She still tries to scrounge off plates, and want treats (which she's not getting). She's drinking and she still wants to go for walks, but she just doesn't want to eat..

Skipping meals here and there is semi normal for the breed.

Tika and Ripley both do it from time to time, and at one point I believe Tika was on a week long hunger strike that would restart biweekly it seemed.

As long as water intake is normal, and they aren't lethargic I wouldn't worry all that much. I would keep on eye on her though and make sure she isn't thinning out. If you start to see the ribs or she just wants to lay around all day and not run around that's when I would bring her in for a check up.

How much are you feeding on a normal day where she eats it all exactly? It may help to know Wink

Hope her appetite kicks back in soon.

130g of meat and 50g of mixer twice a day.

I don't know if it's relevant, but the day before she stopped eating she scoffed an entire bowl of beef dripping which had been left unattended.
