    Default Appetite change, is it normal.

    Bud has been eating the same food for almost 2 years but now he barely touches the food and I feed him twice a day half a cup. Does anyone know why is appetite has changed he used to lick the bottom of his bowl.

    I had this happen with my ridgebacks in the past. For them they were bored of eating the same thing for so long. Have you tried toppers on his food like yogurt or green beans? However, on the flip side there could be a medical reason as to why he isn't eating as well. Is he drinking as he normally would? Is he doing his business as normal or is it less frequent and is his poo runny now? Have there been any changes in your environment?
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Same questions as Todd... any other changes... drinking, potty, behavior? If no, then try adding the items that Todd mentioned (green beans, yoguart)

    Everything is normal. I think I may try chicken broth.

    My Momo (who's 6) will pass on eating a meal because of the weather. Is it hot where you are this time of year? We have central air but I've noticed in the summer sometimes she just won't eat either breakfast or dinner.

    Yes it's a little warm here it's not even summer yet but it's about 85 but I leave the air on.

    I have central air and use it, too, but that still can deter Mona from eating a meal....
