I have doubts about the behavior of Luna, my female dog mixed

My dog do not want to eat, but she look good and normal. We gave her the food two times a day, in the morning and evening, the amount recommended divided in two portions. But, for two days in a row, she did not want the food in the morning. We make a little changes in the house, specially in her bedroom. She now spend more time in the backyard and we do not use the training pad anymore for two days. It is possible that those changes affected her?

Hello!

This behavior could happen because of the changes you applied.

What you can do is put the food in the bowl and leave it there for 10-20 minutes, without giving it to her. If she doesn't eat it, remove it. When it is time for feeding her again, put it again on the floor.

Example: if she normally eats twice a day (mornings and evenings), if she doesn't want to eat in the morning, remove it and leave it again in the evening. In a few days she should get used to eat again as before.

On the other hand, changing the bowl and using a new one can also help.

However, if this behaviour doesn't improve in few days, you should go to your veterinarian to do a general scan of your dog.
Your veterinarian will be able to better assess your dog's condition through a review and, if needed, through the necessary diagnostic tests.

All the best for you and Luna.
