Question: My dog has been raw fed for a while and really doesn't like chicken, he seems to prefer pork, beef & sometimes fish. I don't want to put him back on kibble, do you have any suggestions?

Hi,

I'm trying to find a answer to my GD that has decreased his like in eating raw. He is going to be 3 years old in June. I got him when he was 4 months old as a rescue. He had demodex mange and was yellow from all the mess they had him on trying to treat the mange and his GI problems.

I put him on raw and has been doing great ever since. He was never a big chicken eater. I went through the necks, back, thighs, leg quarters stage. That is he would eat it for a while, then not like it anymore. Tried having back ground for a while mixed with ground beef. Does not like turkey necks. Down to using pork and beef. Does ok with fish.

He gets fed twice a day. At his feeding station. If he does not eat it within a few minutes I pick it up and we try again at the next feeding time.

I don't really want to put him on a grain free kibble. I think feeding raw is better.
Any suggestions? I would appreciate greatly.

Thank you

Cindy's Response:

If he's not underweight and is healthy (per a vet check up), I wouldn't worry about it. Maybe try cutting him down to one meal a day.

There are plenty of dogs that don't like chicken (or some other protein sources).

He may have reached his full growth now and have a lower caloric requirement, so he's not craving the volume of food he did when he was younger.

On Leerburg's Ultra Baskerville Muzzle

I recently purchased an Ultra Baskerville Muzzle and it’s a great product. My dog hardly cares that she has it on. She can receive treats, drink, and pant yet cannot get into trouble. It fits securely but comfortably and it is virtually impossible for her to get it off – in fact she hasn’t even tried! She accepted it from day one.

Thanks!
