Poodle who won't eat

We have a two year old Miniature Poodle bitch that we bought from owners who only ever fed her dry food. Since she has been with us....around three weeks, she will not touch the dry food and barely eats anything else. We walk her every morning and she seems healthy and happy, but she doesn't eat. We give her chicken necks and she may eat one a day, but nothing else.

Answer: Poodle who won't eat.
I think she is fretting. You need to ensure that she isn't doing her self damage by not eating regularly. Have you tried hand feeding her? You could also try zapping the dry food and a little fresh meat in the microwave as this will encourage all the lovely meaty smells to come out, and she might find this tempting. If she still isn't eating I suggest you head to the vet or local pet shop to get a food supplement for her. They usually come in a powdery form, which you mix with milk and it becomes a thin paste. Good stuff! I reared my 2 day old kitten on it!
