My pup won't eat
For the past few days she has been showing distaste for her dry kibbles. She eats 1/2 to 3/4 of her usual amount n then just leaves her food. But today, she refused to eat at all. When I give her treats she happily eats it. She is her usual energetic self n her poop seems normal. No sign of vomiting anywhere. She is a 4 months old pup. Could this be because she is teething or because she doesn't like her dry kibble anymore ir some health problem? Do you think I should take her for a visit to the vet?

If poop and energy is normal, and she is still drinking water and eating treats, I would just give her some time. My puppies occasionally go through phases where they just aren't hungry for a day or two and then go back to normal. I've also put a little bit of low-sodium chicken broth or warm water in the kibble to tempt them to eat again. Is she still just isn't interested, you could try another kibble. If she continues to refuse food longer than three days, I would take her to the vet just to be on the safe side. Out of curiosity, what kibble is she on?

N btw I have not been spoiling her with treats. The only reason I noticed she still eats it is because I tried to lure her back into her kennel with it.

Thank you. I am feeding her Diamond Naturals.

Add some water, just enough to cover the bottom of bowl, to the food to make a bit of gravy and see if she'll eat it. Sometimes that helps. Take her for a walk before feeding time helps as well.
