nanette Posted July 18, 2008 Share Posted July 18, 2008 I have a black lab. She will be 5 in October. We feed her 2 times a day, and she always ate as soon as we put food in her dish. And then still acted hungry as you know labs do! For at least a month or two now, she very rarely eats her breakfast. In the early afternoon she will eat some of it if I coax her. Usually she will eat her dinner without any problem. But once in a while we need to encourage then too. She will eat dog treats if we give her those, and she would eat our food too, but we don't give her table scraps unless something falls on the floor. I don't know if these things matter. but I thout I would mention we live in Ohio where it has been close to 90 alot. But she is an indoor dog, and we have air conditioning. She goes outside and likes to eat things such as little sticks. We have noticed her picking up worms and trying to eat them lately also. She has always been know to eat things that are not food! Three months ago we had to have our cat put to sleep. Sasha (our dog) seemed to eat and act fine for about a week after, then she sometimes seemed sad and changed her eating. I don't know if this could have anything to do with her problem. She seems fine other than the eating. She sleeps like a normal dog, and has her very happy, playful times. Oh, another problem she has is she is totally scared of thunder and fireworks and loud things like that. Is they anything that we can give her in times when she is scared that is safe for her? We are going on vacation in September and we will be putting her in a kennel. Do dogs usually do ok in a kennel? And I think I heard you mention some dogs have a reaction to the shots they need to be boarded. Do I need to be concerned about this? I am sorry this got so long. Thank you for your help!
