Some dogs stop eating in a new environment. For many animals, familiar food helps; for others, variety is the spice of life. Talk to your veterinarian about rotating foods, changing them about once a month and adding dog food toppers.
Establish set meal times, and pick up the food after about 30 minutes. This helps increase the dog’s sense of urgency about eating. You also can try feeding your pup from a food puzzle toy instead of a dog bowl—this works surprisingly well in many cases.
Another option is to use a food topper to make your dog’s meals more enticing. Make sure to add the food topper before you put the food down for your dog. If you wait until your dog refuses the food and then add the food topper, your dog may learn to hold out for tastier and tastier additions to the food before finally eating.
Tylee’s frozen food is a food topper a lot of dogs enjoy. It uses human grade ingredients and meets AAFCO dog food nutrition guidelines, so it’s good for your dog, too!
