We have had a rough 3 or 4 days with Emma not wanting to eat. Normally she eats like a champ for the last couple of months, and once her face is in her bowel, you don't see it again until all the food's gone, but the last few days, it's been a true trial in getting her to eat, even her treats or bones...I'm not sure if her being in heat has anything to do with it or not...But I'm almost to my wits end in trying to get her to eat, and then she doesn't and then the food is no good anymore...I know she's not sick, she is drinking water fine and normal, and going to potty just fine and there has been no vomitting...I just don't know if this is normal behavior for a female in heat...is it?
hmm..my boy is still like this sometimes..some mornings when i feed him he gobbles it all up, some mornings maybe a few bites. he's just barely to the point where he will eat all 2 cups he gets in a serveing.
i have noticed this though...if we go for a walk, or play outside/training exercise he will come home/inside hungry.
maybe try that with emma, work her and she will work up an appetite..
She must have gotten over her food strike, because today she has been eating like a champ again, with no problems what so ever. I'm thinking maybe she just had a sour stomach or something? But she seems fine now, drinking water, eating, everything is normal is the potty dept, sleeping fine, and running like crazy like always, playing with her ropes and squeeky toys. I think she just was having a few bad days!?!?
We're still going to take her to the Vet on Monday when they open to make sure she's ok...
