Smile We're back from vacation.............

and lucky Duncan was great.He didn't eat too well but that was to be expected.He got lots of walks love and attention.
He was very happy to see us when we picked him up and all he did was sleep most the the day.I think he may have been just so happy to finally be with his family.
Now he really isn't eating too well while home with us.
Is this just a readjustment period??or can it be that he is just moving to eating once a day as opposed to twice?
He still gets treats and he is still very playful.
Hope he starts eating the way he used to,but I guess time will tell.
Thanks for listening!!

Dot & Duncan

Dot - it's probably a readjustment period. But if he's done growing he may automatically be adjusting how much he eats. I prefer feeding twice a day regardless of age (except puppies who get three times once at my house.)

Welcome back Dot, I hope you had a great time on your vaction.
I am sure Duncan is just readjusting to being home again, but I wouldn't go to once a day feeding. Just offer him food and pick it up after 20 minutes. If he doesn't eat, just offer it again at next meal time. I am sure he will be fine in a day or two.

Welcome back Dot! Kubrick did the same exact thing when I got back from vacation. I learned that FH was putting down his food and leaving it (whereas I pick it up after 20 minutes) so he had to readjust but now he gobbles his food down once again. Just give it some time.

Welcome back and give him a few days to get adjusted (and you can catch up on posts!)
