My theory is as long as she checks out healthwise with a vet and blood work- I would feed her anything she wants as long as you keep it balanced-ish. She has earned the right to tell you what she wants to eat!

Made several changes this morning, and it's BY FAR the best I've seen her eat in the morning for a couple of weeks.
Fed her an hour later than usual.
Elevated her bowl.
Used a different bowl (one of my soup bowls, not a dog bowl).
Gave her a different brand of canned food (pedigree!!!).
Didn't mix the canned with the kibble, just chopped it into big chunks and put it right on top of the kibble.
She happily ate 3/4 cup of kibble and 3/4 can. Licked the bowl.
Not sure which change made the difference, or a combination of all of them, but fingers crossed that it will continue to work!

You know you're a dog person when the entire tone of your day is set by how well your dog ate, or what the poop looked like :D

Way To Go Tiny..........you keep eating!

Oh that sounds so much like me! Glad Tiny is eating, I know doing small change works sometimes. It did with Dylan but not Frankie. ((HUGS))

So glad your Tiny girl ate her food this morning with vigor. I know just how happy that made you :)

Just a thought, could it be the cold weather? The reason I mention is that during our blizzard 2 weeks ago we all lost power for days. My friends 13yr old Goldie had a bad time of it (not eating, lethargic) so we got them a generator that ran a oil filled electric heater and a electric blanket. Her dog bounced right back the next day. The owner froze but it's all about the dogs you know.

Needless to say the owner was scared to death. Getting the dog to vet was not a possibility. Glad my new little front wheel drive stick shift made it up her long driveway ( took a few trys) the van never would have made it.

Look foward to the video, hint hint.

You sure hit the nail on the head there...something we can all identify with! So glad to hear Tiny's appetite has returned.:)
