Dulcie is now 2 years old and doesn't seem very interested in eating any more. She weighs 38 lbs., so has gained 3 lbs. or so in the last year and seems to be holding steady, so I am not super worried about her just yet, but some days she will eat and others not so much. I can easily feel her ribs, and her hip bones stick out a little - can also feel the knobs in her spine . I feed her about a cup of dry twice a day with a quarter can of wet (4Health). She will eat more if she has had a good run at the farm, of course. I am so used to dogs that scarf their food (with the exception of my Jack Russell, who was also quite skinny) that I keep thinking something is wrong with Dulcie, as that lack of appetite so often means something is wrong. She is still playful and seems to have plenty of energy, so don't think we are ready for a vet trip yet, but I am wondering if any of your doodles have this same lack of interest? She does eat most days, but is not very enthusiastic . . . . hope I don't have an anorexic dog!
