picky eater
I need some suggestions on how to get a picky Eater to eat. My 1 yr old female always picks slowly at her food. Has her entire life. I switched foods before to see if that was it, but it just seems like her style. Sometimes she will go 2 or 3 feedings without eating. Currently she is on taste of the wild. I feed her out with my other dogs. If I try to put it in her kennel and let her eat she won't touch it. Any ideas? I don't think I can feed raw... ???

You are not alone! Made a sticky for this cause it's so common in our dogs...

I recently switched my picky eaters to Pet Fresh rolls (available at PetsMart, Petco, and some grocery stores - they have their own refrigeration case). The food is rated 5 stars on Pet Food Advisor and they gobble it up. I cut them chunks of it and feed it along side the kibble. It isn't cheap to feed it exclusively, but if you supplement with kibble, it's not too bad.

I have the same problem with 1 year old male. What I do is mix some kibble with shredded cheese or add a bit of ground beef/wet food for taste. Works fine.
