I have an 18month old medium sized entire bitch.
She has had a chronic lack of appetite for about 9 months now.
She will only eat a very small portion of food one day, maybe again the next day but then she will eat virtually nothing for a couple of days.
It is extremely worrying and obviously not normal - my other dogs all have healthy appetites & her mother has a healthy appetite.
I have tried feeding her twice daily - premium dry food in the morning which she will eat sometimes but only 1/4 cup. If I put out more for her she will leave it.
Of an evening I feed BARF which she will eat sometimes. I also offer chicken necks which she likes but she will only eat 1.
I have taken her to the vet many times because of this and recently got referred to a specialist internal medicine vet. They have taken bloods on several occasions and the last thing that was done was an ultra sound - all of which came up with nothing - they could find nothing wrong with her!!
She is approx. 6kg and she should be about 8kg.
I am at my wits end, I just don't know what to do next.
Can anyone help??
