    well that would make sense why she picks but still is not bully behaviour really. most bullies inhale their food in 3 minutes and so i think a twice a day measured feeding schedule is what most here do. have a schedule and stick to it so she knows what is expected of her everyday and she will learn she has a certain time to eat. time and patience and im sure she will be ok and eating soon. if not then we can go from there with a different food.

    Mine just picks and pieces throughout the day. We free feed though. We fill his bowl in the morning it holds 4 cups and usually there's half a bowl left the next morning. He likes to take his time and doesn't like knowing that he can see the bottom of the bowl even if hes not hungry lol.

    This was my first gut reaction as well - but even still, Remi tore up anything I put in front of him. I would assume at 5 months she would have quite the appetite though. I might try working in a new food.

    Well I don't know what it is but after I switched the bowl to a short bowl, Koko has been eating very well. She actually finishes her meals. I don't know if its the bowl or if she is adjusting better but just to let you guys know she is eating a lot better now. Thanks All!!!!

    My Usko comes from the litter of 7 and has been really picky all his life, he is 2 now. He came home at 8 weeks with RC and I tried every topping imagineble, but he just didn't eat as much as he should of. He was quite skinny and started having small bold patches in his back. We switched to raw food when he was 7 months old. He likes it a lot more, but still doesn't eat everything I offer. Right now he refuses to eat turkey necks, but loves pigs tongue! He does drive me crazy sometimes with his pickiness. If I were you I would give her some vitamin supplement just to ensure she gets enough nutrients, even if she's not eating as much as she should.
