One of our furry friends’ favorite activities is eating. They undeniably eat a lot – first thing in the morning, during playtime, during training, and even before sleep time. In fact, most new dog owners are even excited to buy their dogs some adorable dog utensils and bowls to match their fur babies’ love for food.
No human parent actually wants to see their dog lose his appetite. If you are a dog owner and this is one of your problems right now, read more here.
Make It Hot
Try warming up your dog’s food a little bit. You can pop it inside the microwave and let the mouth-watering smell fill the air to entice your fur kid’s taste buds. Be careful not to hand over too hot food to your dog by the way.
Add More Flavors
Make the food pop a little too. Give your furry baby turkey or a piece of lamb meat to spice up his meals. Use only white meat and remove the bones before letting your dog have it. Just like humans, our furry friends like their food to be a bit ‘saucy’. You can also scramble it up by adding eggs in it.
Open the Can
Make him excited by handing over a can of treats or doggy food to him. This is possible if your dog is well-versed that what you are usually giving him are from canned dog food.
Serve it Up
Hand-feed your dog sometimes too. You can also praise him for eating right and for not being too tired to eat his meals.
Don’t Be Pushy
Never force your dog to eat. You may leave the food in his bowl because after sometime, he will get hungry and look for food eventually.
If this loss of appetite continues within 48 hours, then better consult your preferred veterinarian for possible underlying health problems your dog may be having. If this is also happening frequently, then don’t wait too long and have your dog properly assessed.
