    Default4 year old doesn't want to eat

    Hello,

    We have a 4 year old... she's been spoiled terribly, now she doesn't want to eat her kibble. We made the mistake of adding some additional things to her kibble, plus my wife can't say no to her begging, and now she doesn't want to eat that kibble at all.

    We use Acana Wild Prairie. She is overweight. The summer here in Central Florida is really hot, I keep her walks shorter. She doesn't appear to mind. I've cut her food amount to one cup. I place it down, leave it for 10 minutes, and pick it up when not eaten. She's only eaten once in the past 3 days. She clearly wants people food...

    Should I be overly concerned that she's not eating?

    How many days can she go without eating?

    Thank you!

    You are being played by your dog. Feed her what she is supposed to eat and nothing else. Get the wife on board, or you won't be able to stop the problem. She will eventually start eating what you had been feeding her before...when she becomes hungry enough. Obviously keep providing her with water.

    She won't starve herself. You need to be strong.
