    Default How much should she eat?

    I was told by her last owner that she ate twice daily. But Maggie has only been eating once a day and sometimes only every other day. She doesn't appear to be sick or scared or stressed. She's not loosing weight. I walk her and play with her. Also she pooping once a day. Everything is normal. She's still drinking water. But her food will sit there forEVER untouched. When she does eat she eats everything. She seems to like the food. I just don't feel like she's eating enough. I don't feed her a lot of treats either.

    What and how much are you feeding at each serving ? Have you tried any toppers? You can add fish oil, coconut oil, steamed vegi, boiled beef, cottage cheese, shredded cheese, lowfat sodium free beef broth, lowfat sodium free chicken broth. She could just not like her kibbles. Some dogs just get bored with their food.

    She could also be not feeling well. Try the toppers and if she still wont eat you might want to get her blood and thyroid checked.

    When she was having diarrhea I bought a can of pumpkin and I've been putting it on her food just to finish the can. She will usually eat it with that. But not today!

    I feed her blue buffalo life protection formula chicken. I'm gonna transition to lamb once her food bag gets low to see if she's just bored. I feed her about a cup and a half to two cups a serving.

    If you are feeding her 2 cups a serving 2 times a day that is a lot of food. Normally for an adult/ senior 1 cup twice a day is good. When you buy her food try blue buffalo grain free no chicken.

    I thought so too. But that's how much her last owner fed her. I'll cut it down and see how she does.

    Winston gets Fromms & I give him 1 1/2 cups twice a day, plus toppings (and 2 snacks). It really depends on the dog for feeding amounts, but I've never heard of a dog not eating for a day... If she's acting normal & not losing weight I wouldn't worry too much. Maybe over the weekend she will be a chow hound... LOL

    Harlea gets 1 cup twice a day and then gets healthy snacks and a little bit of kibble while we are working with her throughout the day.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.
