I have a 2 year old golden retriever. She is a very sweet dog, but we think she is special. She has a lot of weird quirks, which has been challenging to figure out. She gets frightened easily by a lot of things….. can’t figure out stuff…. lets other dogs bully her around…. doesn’t want to go pee in the morning until after she plays with her ball…. gets overly attached to toys…
We got her as a puppy, and she has always been a picky eater. We have tried about 5 different brands of dry food. We basically have had to hand feed her and beg her to eat it every day for the last 2 years. Then we have tried wet food mixed in with her dry food. She only likes lamb flavor I have come to find out. Then I have tried mixing her wet food in with her dry and some hot water. She enjoyed her food like this for about a week, and now she refuses to eat it anymore. If I don’t smash the wet food in enough, she will pick out the wet food.
I am at a loss. I have asked many different vets and they sort of just say “weird… Oh well”. I spend an extra 20 min twice a day trying to get her to eat. My other dog eats PERFECTLY fine. I am so discouraged. Any advice would be amazing! I have thought about just feeding her wet food, but I have no idea how much of that I can give her. On the cans it says to feed them one can for ever 20 pounds or something. LOL. She is 55-60 pounds!!
