Happy Hump Day everyone! I hope your week is going well so far! We have been getting fairly consistent dust storms for the past few weeks, sometimes with rain, sometimes not. Makes for an interesting patio in the aftermath - LOL!
So Buzz has always been my problem child and I thought I would throw this out here to see what you all do. Buzz is the worst finicky eater! Before him, I have never owned a dog that I actually had to coax to eat their food! I have always done the thing where I put it down and if they don't eat it then I pick it back up and give it to them next meal time. I hate doing this with Buzz though because he's losing muscle mass with age and from limping so he's looking extra skinny. Most Greyhounds look starved as it is so it bothers me that Buzz is looking so skinny. So I do things like add beef broth, boil up chicken, fry up hamburger, add canned food, add cheese. All of these things work but not consistently. This morning he ate part of his breakfast and then ignored it so I picked it up and let him outside. Then he comes back in, I gave him his bowl and he finished it right up. I only had his kibble, some canned and some beef broth on it this time. So....
Question of the Week: What have you done or would think of doing if you were having trouble getting your dog to eat?
I'm really looking forward to your answers!
