I recently got a 1 year old Pomeranian. I noticed when I first fed her she would put her nose to the bowl, then to the floor, and this repeats a few times until she's satisfied. I recently took her to the vet and they suggested to feed her in her kennel because she was thin and needed to gain weight too. I've been feeding her in her kennel since, but she sometimes still does the ritual. Should I be concerned about this? and what does it mean? View Thread
Thanks for the reply Ponyrun2! Her eating behavior is almost as though she is trying to rub her nose on the floor to get rid of the smell, and then puts it back up to the bowl and repeats. I have not seen another dog do this before either.
I feed her twice a day, once in morning then in evening in her kennel. Take it away after about 15 minutes. She eats more in the evening than in the mornings. Since her previous owner exposed her to human food, and she isn't taking to her dry dog food, Wellness, I was thinking of switching her dry dog food to another brand. We tried mixing the dry food with the Wellness canned meats but she didnt like that brand meat as much as Cesar. At this time, I am almost desperate for her to gain more weight. She is at 6.5 lbs right now. I know she can eat more than she is now, but she is picky or the food just doesn't appeal to her. I will change her dry food to another brand and if I have to, my last resort is to cook homemade dog food for her to gain weight.View Thread
