You may have read last week that Caesars tummy was inflammed and had to go on meds and a beef and rice diet. Well he was getting better so we started to slowly mix his regular dry dog food in with the beef and rice. The first time I did this I could hear "tink...tink..tink". He was picking out his dry kibble and spitting it on the floor! Then he would eat the beef and rice. But in true Beagle fashion he ate the food that he spat on the floor once all the good stuff was gone. A couple days later all the beef and rice was gone and he was back to a full bowl of kibble. I put it down infront of him and he looked at his food, looked at me, and walked away in disgust. But eventually got hungry and ate his regular dry food. I never thought he would actually not want to eat his food.

Hee Hee. Yes I can well imagine. Since my dogs started a RAW diet they look at my foster dogs with pity and disgust. They don't even attempt to go near the kibble. I leave the foster dogs on kibble only because I don't want to lock an adoptive family into RAW as it is quite a switch and a process. Otherwise I would love to see what it could do for them.

It makes me laugh!! And of course it happens to me too. When one of the beags is sick and eats rice and chicken it's always stressful make her eat her dry food again :biglaugh: Spoiled beagles :hi:

Harley certainly doesn't have that problem - if it's on the ground it is in his mouth regardless of what it is.

He's like a bottomless pit - never satisfied.

Lucky is picky. But he's never been sick (other than when he has Parvo as a puppy and he did get cooked chicken broth then) so he never gets raw food or special food. I actually tried giving him some turkey on Thanksgiving and he threw it up. He no longer gets people food. He is stuck with his dog food only.

Clever little boy. This only prove that all those people who say that Beagles eat eeeeverything, are wrong. Well at least once they are used to good stuff...

Jersey sometimes does a similar thing. I give her a tablespoon or so of canned food mixed in with her dry kibble. She'll eat the canned around the kibble, licking it off and spitting out the kibble. Then, she goes and eats the kibble off the floor. She'll only eat the dry kibble alone if she's very hungry.

Abby use to be horribly picky. There are still so many things she won't eat, but now she's not so picky about like, her kibble.

She use to be so picky that I'd have to buy a huge bag of kibble just to she could pick through her bowl to get the pieces she liked, fill up on those, and I'd have to dump the rest because she wouldn't touch it.

She also doesn't eat chunky canned dog food. I have to get her the ground up looking stuff and it was to be a certain brands or else she won't eat it.

She also doesn't eat very many dog treats. We have a huge stick of chew sticks and Dingo treats and those AKC training treats because those are the only snacks she eats.

Funny thing is though she LOVES any and all brands of dry cat food :rolleyes:

Caesar goes nuts for the cat food!!!! One time when he got his head into the bag of cat food his mouth was sooo full that the food was falling out of his mouth by the time I pulled him out.

I asked the vet about that and she said it's alright for her to sneak a snack on it occasionally but it shouldn't be the staple of her diet.

I'm going to start putting Abby's food she normally doesn't eat in the cat's bowl to see if she'll eat it. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif
