My little poodle is not eating her

Customer Question
food. I give...
my little poodle is not eating her food. I give her Iams dry food and Cesar wet food and she would clean her bowl. I adopted her about 2 months ago from our Humane Society. She is 5 years old. I'd appreciate your input. I was about to go to our local grocery store to pick up a roasted chicken to give her but I thought I'd better check in case it's not the best thing to do. I appreciate your advice. Thank you

No I'm not trying to phone. Please reimburse me. I have a difficult time trying to understand how to use this site. I will take her to my regular vet. Thanks anyway. I apologise for your time being taken. I'm just worried about her. Thank you for trying.
