Dog Won't Eat from a Bowl
Asked Jun 26, 2007, 12:27 PM
My dog, a Shih Tzu REFUSES to eat from a bowl. She will eat off the floor or from your hand but not out of a bowl. She also won't eat off a plate.
I made a big mistake about a year ago - she wouldn't eat her kibble so I hand fed it to her in the morning. Then she started to refuse her evening meal (wet food).I catered to her & used a small plate. Now she won't eat off that. She will grab a treat out of the bowl and eat it elsewhere.
I talkd with her vet & started 5 days ago only feeding her from a bowl. For a few days, she ate the treat but nothing else from the bowl. I have stopped the treats. She has eaten nothing in 2 days. I have tried kibble & fresh grilled meat, etc.
They say a dog won't starve themselves but this one will. I love her but she is driving me crazy. I don't know what to do.
Somebody help me, please.
