    really sounds like she doesn't like veggies... does she like fruits? have you tried GSDs4Ever's apperteaser powder? i can imagine that sprinkling it over the veggies might help

    Cleas, remind me and I'll give you a bit of each of the kibble I have here for you to try, if Ruby is that picky then something is better than nothing!

    So you're just taking the veggies from her diet and giving her kibble and meat? Are you able to tell us how it affects them when they've been on it for a while (just for interests sake). I saw how you commented on their fur and activities levels when they were just on the RAW diet. I was just interested to see if and how these change by not feeding them veggies (or just for Ruby, if you're not doing the same for Sumo).

    Would you have any idea why both of them got to a point where they didn't want to eat raw? Just preference for other foods?

    Sounds like things are improving.

    I find that some dogs put themselves on one meal a day earlier than what we would like.

    Mine all have two meals, mainly because the setter is deep chested and guzzles water.

    The two younger Whippets because they are active.

    Mum Whippet could of easily gone to one meal at about 1yo but because the others have two I also split hers. I feel horrible the amount I give her but the maturity of her body came thru a lot quicker than the others and she obviously doesn't need it. If she was an only dog she wouldn't be a big eater.

    The puppies put themselves on two meals very early on in the pce. I bet if I'd been working away from home they would of wanted/needed three.
