My Rescue Dog Won't Eat
Asked Nov 28, 2006, 05:40 PM
I just adopted a Doberman from a Dobie rescue organization. He's about a year old. When he was rescued, he was all ribs and bones. They had him about 4 months and he has put on a little weight. Since coming to my house, he won't eat. He will come to eat then turn his nose and walk away. I know he's hungry. I've walked him and exercised him, but he still won't eat. He's not a big drinker either. He needs to gain at least 10 to 15 lbs to be where he should be. Any suggestions? I've tried everything, and he can't afford to lose anymore weight. I called my vet and they suggested cooking for him, but on the other hand they said try to get him in the habit of eating dog food rather then people food. Thanks in advance for any suggestions...
