The Most Common Phone Call From Our New Adoptive Families Is That Their New Pet Is Not Eating

This is very common when the pet is introduce into a new environment, sometimes caused by stress or anxiety. This can last for a couple of days, and we suggest that you add a little boiled skinless chicken and rice to his food and wean off. If you are not planning on feeding the same food as the shelter was, always mix the food and wean slowly off to avoid upsetting their digestive system.

We also suggest that you put your pet on a feeding schedule, whether you are feeding once or twice daily put the food down for 15mins, if they do not eat it all or not at all, pick up the food and save for the next feeding. After feeding your pet wait about 20mins and let your pet out to do their business.
