My Dog Isn’t Eating But Acting Normal

    I have a 1 yr old yorkiepoo, she experienced her first heat 2 months ago. She is a picky eater, but has always eaten for the most part. I am too nice and leave her food out because she isn’t always quick to finish everything at once. The past 2 weeks she has barely been eating her food. She is on a farmers dog meal plan, and she loves it. She is drinking water, not excessively though. She has pooped, so I don’t think it’s a bowel obstruction. When she has eaten the past 2 weeks it tended to be bland food, like white rice or plain pasta pieces. I honestly don’t know what’s causing her loss of appetite.

    Other than the loss of appetite, she is happy, playful, aggressively chewing on toys, running around and jumping…she is her normal crazy self. I ordered these vitamin supplements to give her, but not sure if I should take her to the vet first…I feel like they won’t know either, cuz she’s fine….$500 later….lol…how long of the picky eating can I go, before this becomes serious? Also, are those supplements good? The gel kind?

      Hi Bhanu, thanks for sharing your concern.

      The most common cause of loss of appetite in your dog is probably infection or disease. Although a loss of appetite in dogs doesn’t necessarily indicate serious disease, yet veterinary attention is important because it could be a sign of significant illness.

      Yes, the gel kind supplement is good for her as it is a high-calorie nutritional supplement, but in this scenario, you should consult with a Vet first before providing random solutions. You need to find the actual problem, then go for the right cure.

      Thanks again
