Re: [black kitty] What is your furkid's appetite???

Hi Smile

My Ladee (miniature poodle) eats like a tiny bird Unsure... I'll classify her under Eats when she likes - sometimes eat, sometimes don't eat and Fussy eater - eats certain type of food only...

Ladee has never been passionate about food as most doggie are... her appitite has never been very good since pup... but like you, I keep her diet strictly on her kibbles mixed with canned dog food with some vege for better digestion... there will be days when she will not eat at all... checked with my vet and he says its normal... some dogs are like that... so instead of being a miniature, she is smaller built than most her type... looks more like a toy poodle...

Re: [ladee_m] What is your furkid's appetite???

shalom is very passionate. everything also she eatsCrazy. but i guess i am glad she eats everything...compared to her old self when she first came...had to hand feed her.

hmmm...i seem to hear and read a lot of min poodles and their picky eating...is it their breed thingy?

Re: [a_evie] What is your furkid's appetite???

Hi Smile

Not too sure if its a breed factor Crazy... I've also heard many such comments that they are indeed picky fellas... dunno how true is this fact... I am sure having a hard time with Ladee's diet... she eats ever so little and sometimes I try to trick her into half scoop more also fail Frown... she knows how much is the regular and will not take one extra kibble that I add in Unsure...

I am not sure how to calculate if her weight is at the right level... some bigger breeds like the GR do have a certain guideline... wonder how do we count the furkid's mass body weight Crazy... like humans to see if they are overweight or underweight...hmmm...

Re: [a_evie] What is your furkid's appetite???

Hi Smile

No... first of all no time to prepare and secondly, only agree with cooked food... raw for me is NO... but I know many ppl are into that kinna feeding now... there are always the pro and cons... some dogs are better adapted to BARF and some better for processed food... but its all for the good of our furkids Wink... What about you???

Re: [a_evie] What is your furkid's appetite???

Hi Smile

Not with my Ladee... but have tried it with my BF's GR... there was a period of time the GR had very bad apppitite and so we tried home cooked... beef or lamb cubes and chicken brest boiled with carrots mixed with presoaked kibbles... the GR ate for sometime and eventually got bored of it... later it decides to go back to basics = eat the kibbles only... so now all our dogs are on kibbles... how do you prepare your furkids' meal?

Re: [ladee_m] What is your furkid's appetite???

shalom is barfing. so i cook the rice fresh for each day. then chop up the veges (steam or puree sometimes depending on the vege). the meat has been precut and stored for each meal in separate tubs (saves work).

on hot days, i add some bone and meat stock with her barf to beef up her water intake.

on her lucky days, she does salmon or cod.

on emergency days, we let her have kibbles (she swallows it as well)...

her treats include home baked liver strips and doggie cookies...and yes sometimes, the commercial pack lamb treats.

the cheras kids barf when they see me otherwise they kibble.

the pj kids are barfing when they see me and any other occassions, zen diet (brown rice, turkey, vege, seaweed and tofu...all cooked). emergencies...they do kibbles too.

at first it was tough...having to get up earlier to prepare food. but now i get a hang of everything...less than 5 minutes. basically place the meat into fridge the night before (for morning meal) and in teh morning before going to work (for dinner). rice cooks in less than 10 minutes which i use to hang the clothes...feed the terrapins, change water for them and the plants and feed the cats in my apartment.

Re: [a_evie] What is your furkid's appetite???

"add some bone and meat stock with her barf to beef up her water intake."????

I give my Piper kibbles only. Only if my gf is cookin that day, she'll give her some vege only. fresh non-cook vege. I mean a bit only la..but her main meal is just kibbles. after eating, i'll pour some water into her bowl and that's it. Just hoping that she'll drink a lot of it so that her kidney is okay.

Re: [nairud] What is your furkid's appetite???

aha....kibbles? are you doing k/d diet or an alternative...i mean i see you mentioning something about "so that her kidney is ok".

and veges...do you puree or chop them them? otherwise piper can't absorb the benefits of the said vege.

btw, i like the name piper. sounds happy, cheerful and joy bringer.

Re: [nairud] What is your furkid's appetite???

famosa...dunno yet. it all depends on work schedule.

indigestion. am not surprised....you should not mix kibble with other food. different digestion period. try giving a little yoghurt today to help the stomach settle down. 1 table spoon also enough...plain yoghurt or even plain vitagen / yakult.

btw...what porridge?

try to puree or chop up the vege a little. will help piper to absorb the benefits of thevege better.

Re: [c-yee] What is your furkid's appetite???

Hi Smile

If you have let your furkid try human food before, then there is higher possiblity that it will crave for human food... after all human food is alot tastier... try not to give her any...

I do not give Ladee human food except raw vege for fibre...

Re: [ladee_m] What is your furkid's appetite???

kinki will only eat when she likes it.

i think is becuase my grandma sometimes feed her home cooked food when i'm not around.

so when its time for me to feed her she will not eat.

Re: [ladee_m] What is your furkid's appetite???

My toy poodle when i first got her when she was 14 weeks ate until her little belly was swollen. But now that she is almost a year she only eats when she wants and sometimes not at all. The puppy food she LOVED was Dimond and now she eats what all the other dogs eat Iams adult. She likes wet food the best but sometimes won't touch that either. I think its a breed thing. Unsure If anyone has suggestions on how to get my little one to eat i am all ears!!!
