Customer Question

We just got two chihuahuas today from the human society and while seeming happy in their new home one will not eat except one type of dog treat. He pushes away the the meal with his nose. I am not sure what to do. Everything else seems just fine.

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner and I regret that my state board of veterinary examiners doesn't allow me to speak to customers by phone in this venue. Please stay in this conversation if you wish.

One day is much too short of a time for many dogs to acclimate to their new surroundings. Appetite is bound to be altered. Feeding the same food as was given at the humane society - at least initially - is smart. The humane society should have given you something like this to peruse: http://www.humanesociety.org/animals/dogs/tips/bringing_new_dog_home.html?referrer=https://www.google.com/ Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
