    Default Bored with food

    I think Tipsy is bored with her food, she eats but isn't overly excited about food, been like that the past few weeks. I know she is not sick but it may be she is bored. Anything you guys add to your bully's food to make it exciting without causing digestion "issues"? She is on Natural Balance alpha chicken which she LOVED when she first started eating it.

    Try salmon oil, its great for their skin and I'm sure for a dog it makes the kibble more tasty

    Are you possibly feeding too much?

    I didn't think about the amount, good point everyone. Samson only gets 2 cups a day, one in the morning and one at night.

    Watson is 60lbs and he gets 1 cup twice a day as well. Like what others have said, maybe she has too much food so she is not motivated to eat it. depends on how active she is as well.

    Sprinkle some Parmesan cheese on it and it'll be gone in an instant!

    Yeah, good idea. I'll cut it to about 2 cups. She is small for her age, 2 yo at 40lb, so she doesn't need all that food. I've tried yogurt and she loves it so I'll try the cheese today. Thanks all for your help 😃
