Won't Eat Kibble from a Bowl
My very fussy eater Sammy will not eat his Kibble from his bowl anymore. If he is not hand fed he will starve himself all day. He has gone as long as 1.5 days before we cave in and hand feed him. We already had some weight concerns as he lost weight (just a few oz) in 2 weeks between vet visits. The vet said to feed soft food if that's what he'll eat, but she wants him to eat.
Sammy is almost 5 months old and I'm feeding the same food the breeder used Nature's Abundance. We tried it dry, we tried soaking it in water even chicken soup. He prefers it soaked, but he will still not eat it out of the bowl. If we put anything else in the bowl with the kibble, ground beef or chicken or eggs, he'll everything in the bowl but the kibble. But if we hand feed it one by one he'll eat it all up.
We are using stainless bowls. I have a larger bowl, and I thought that was the problem, so I bought a smaller stainless bowl and still no change.
