Dogs will occasionally miss a meal, which can often be normal behaviour. They are quite resistant to starvation compared to humans so it’s usually nothing to worry about, but you should always monitor their intake closely, especially for puppies.
You also have to decide if your dog is fussy or unwell. If a dog is truly unable to eat for a long period of time, it’s likely to be related to a medical issue. Always check with a vet if you are in doubt and consider trying them with sensitive stomach dog food, designed to be easy to digest.
There are several ways of enhancing dog food for fussy dogs or encouraging them to eat. Here are some of our top tips:
Here at Different Dog, we believe we can encourage even the pickiest of eaters to enjoy mealtimes again, through our tasty, natural food. Here’s why:
We are on a crusade to change the pet food industry for good.
We bring together the best of both worlds: the science of dog nutrition and the joy of real food.
We prioritise sustainability and always strive to do better for our environment.
We stand for change, no matter how small, towards a healthier future for all dogs.
Back in 2015 I worked in the dog food industry. I got to know manufacturers, visit factories and understand how dog food is made. The more I learned, the more concerned I became.
We all know that you are what you eat. Yet we continue to feed our dogs the same food day in, day out. Often the shelf life is measured in years, and the food doesn’t even need to go in the fridge. What’s more, it doesn’t seem to have changed in years.
When we got our new puppy, Crumble, it didn't feel right to give her processed food. So we started making food for her ourselves, as we do for our children. She loved it and thrived on it. We started making it for her friends as well, and they all loved it too. People told us their dogs had shinier coats, better digestion and more bounce. So we decided to help as many dogs as we could by setting up Different Dog.
