JR and Food NEW
by: Anonymous

Our JRT is 13 and she won't eat her dry dog food at all! It is our own fault, we have given her table scraps, too many treats and canned dog food. The only way we can get her to eat her own food is to not give her anything else, and that is hard. and she will go for days without eating,then finally eat some dry food. Maybe your JR has found it's tastier to take the other foods he can get instead of eating his own. They are such smart dogs!

12 year Jack wants other's food NEW
by: Bert

Have you tried making his food more enticing? You can put a scoop of cottage cheese, some yogurt or some cheese on top. Or at the pet store they sell "gravy" that you can put on top of his food. Or a little bit of canned pumpkin (and that is good for digestion as well). Try that and see if it helps!
