i have a male shetland sheep dog that never likes to eat. apparently he only eats when he gets agitated or angry and it’s only if i hand fed him. tried everything i can, change food brands and even cooked for him. now he even rejects raw chicken. he will usually sniff the food first, then take a few small bites and that’s all. i have also tried not to hand feed him for a period of time and he will stop eating completely for 2 days, after that only take a very little food from the bowl, enough just to keep him alive. previously done this for 2 months and he lost so much weight, and i gave in at last. he dislikes certain sound eg. fireworks, bikes and also sound of electric shaver and toothbrush. to get him to eat, i have to turn on my electric toothbrush, that’s how i managed to maintain his ideal weight. i know it’s wrong but i really don’t know what else to do. for your information, i don’t feed him any treats. got a new puppy recently as advised from the vet ( hoping he might eat ), but it’s useless, he’s not even bothered that the new puppy ate his food!
