Good Question: What Foods Should Dogs Not Eat? - WCCO - CBS Local
9/10 times I've found when people have issues with their dogs not eating or not being food motivated they are free feeding them
Not to disagree, but only to warn dog owners, I am a over the top, dedicated peto owner...she is spoiled...has her own armoire of clothes, a following on FB with friends that have handmade dresses made for her. Anyway, over 5 mths. ago now, I had her yearly exam done and as I usually do, I had them do a complete blood work-up on her, expensive yes, but well worth it for my baby. All the blood work was perfect, except one kidney test that was high normal. Since the other kidney tests were fine, they said, there wasn't a need to worry unless she started not eating, peeing more and drinking more. As the months went on the one thing I noticed the most was her being pickier than usual with food, I had to switch it 3X, just to get her to eat. She was always picky, so even that wasn't loud sirons. I thought, she is going to be 15, she is getting for finicky. Then she didn't want to eat at all. As for the pee and drinking, well idk if I was being hyperparanoid or if she really was peeing and drink more. Right about when she wouldn't eat, she started peeing in our bed, where she has always slept with us...this is not her. I rushed her to the vet, they did blood work and she has 4th stage kidney failure. I couldn't believe it could could change that quick, so I took her to an internist, who gave us hope and said it started as an acute kidney injury that turned to Chronic Kidney Failure. Possibly a kidney infection, they said dogs rarely show if they are in pain or if something like that is wrongoing with them. I of course felt awful, because if I knew I would have had her at the vet in a second. The good news is, because it started as an acute injury, the stages could come down and within a month, she was already down to low end of stage 3. Her one kidney level is normal and the 2 other are creeping there. After a very long explanation, if they are not eating, but eating treats, does not necessarily mean they are okay, so be aware of other symptoms, research online. Cocobean at her worst was still eating her treats and human food (that was all we could get her to eat, boiled chicken etc...) Also, if yourequired animals are healthy, I def. recommend Pet insurance. Some may think it is a waste of money, believe me i paid since she was 6 yrs. old and never submitted a claim, but it is priceless now, because her care is expensive, but her ins. is good and they pay 80% after $100 deductible, and $1500 max a year, plus her friends have been kind. I loved your article, I just wanted people to know, they can be eating treats and human food and not their reg. food and not be well. I wouldnt to see anyone to go through what we are, but especially their furbaby. We have to give her fluids 3x a week, 5 meds and forget trying to get her to eat renal food. Good luck everyone, to you and your furbabies.
That’s ridiculous, even if “let Candidate X be himself” is a bigger cliche than dogs not eating dog food. Romney was being himself at that $50,000 a head fundraiser, and he revealed himself to be a heartless plutocrat. Voters don’t want to see any more of that.

Foods Dogs Should NOT Eat To Ensure A Long Healthy Life
If your newbie dog doesn't seem too interested in the food you're offering, try to call the previous owner, shelter or breeder and inquire about his prior eating habits. Chances are, he was used to eating a certain type of food and may not be too happy with what you offered. Also, ask if he had free access to food all day or if he was fed at different times. You want to replicate your dog's previous schedule as much as possible. Avoid abrupt diet changes prevent an upset tummy.The infographic below outlines foods that fine for dogs, okay in moderation, not recommended, and those you definitely should stay away from. The safe foods aren’t that surprising and are often used in recipes for homemade dog food, like meat, carrots, and rice. Foods better in moderation, like cheese or hot dogs, may be best saved for use as an extra special treat—just as you wouldn’t eat junk food for every meal yourself. And there are some foods like chocolate or gum that you should never give to your dog. This list isn’t exhaustive, and some dogs have more sensitive stomachs than others, so if you’re unsure about the foods, check with your vet.
