Picky Eating Again!

For the last two mornings, Dexter has not eaten in the morning. He turns his nose up and walks away.

Is there Havs here who only eat once a day?

Mornings: Chicken & Rice, Carrots that I made mixed with good quality kibble.
Evenings: Meat balls mixed with good quality kibble.

We have been mixing a little of what we eat at night to his food so he will eat. In the mornings, Dexter gets what is put down.

Dusty will do this sometimes, especially if we are near the bottom of a bag of food. I think she doesn't like it if her food is even slightly stale.
Indie eats everything, all the time.

It takes FOREVER to finish up a dry food kibble!

Tess is a very picky eater and is much more likely to turn her nose up at breakfast.

MacGyver often skips a meal or two -- he's certainly not wasting away, so we stopped worrying about it. can you switch the meals occasionally?

My hav is a rescue and we have had to find what she likes. Turns out she doesnt like too much chicken. So we feed her Instinct rabbit flavor and switch it with EVO read meat and mix it with the beef and brown rice roll. She still will only eat between 1/4 and 1/2 cup per day but she is doing very well. I save the chicken as an occassional treat so she doesnt get sick of it again. Maybe after this bag of EVO is finished I'll try the chicken again, but I have learned not to buy the large bags. Too hard to keep fresh and she is likely to get sick of the food before the kibble is gone.

my hav use to eat once a day just because he was such a picky eater and he'd never eat his entire food. now with his prednisone, i feed him 2 small meals 2x a day because he always seems to be hungry

Prednisone has a side effect of being hungry all the time.

I will be changing up the food soon. Dexter is not wasting away...that is for sure...sometimes he skips his meals.....kind of wondered, if I should reduce the food.

Sometimes, when we go outside and Dexter runs around...we will do some training and use his food for treats! It works!
