Help!

Coco refuses to eat her food and I am getting worried. She now eats once a day and I give her boiled chicken (plus potatoes and carrots sometimes). Last night she just ate the carrots. I tried giving her some beef and she just managed a sniff. Perhaps she's turning into a vegetarian. What does everybody else feed their schnauzer??

Hi Tooki, Rubie always has eaten like she is starving - a legacy from being from a litter of 10 where the instinct is to compete for food. She is 11.5 kg at the moment and she really could lose a couple of kilos! (along with me) Anyway I try and keep her on a raw food diet and her evening meal is 100g raw meat (either minced chicken necks or lean beef) about 3 tablespoons boiled lentils, and grated raw veg like carrot, zucchini or cabbage. She does get a little good quality commercial dry food in the morning. Only 2 tablespoons or so. It is much harder to deal with a picky eater. Both my brothers minis are uninterested in breakfast... and essentially only eat their evening meals. My friends have two small dogs and the female dog occasionally goes on hunger strike too - they dont feed her for a couple of days - THEN she is ready to eat again! Do some internet searching and then if you are worried get into the vet for a check. Coco has never been a big eater...so I would expect her to go up and down with her appetite. Good luck, Rubie's mum.
