Helping a Fussy Pet

We often think of household animals as being voracious and greedy creatures, willing to eat almost anything and everything. However, many of us will know from experience that this is not always the case and that, whether you have a cat, a dog, or even a rabbit, not only can our animals be fussy, they also sometimes seem to be totally uninterested in the exact food they are supposed to eat.

If you have found your own cat or dog to be a fussy eater, there are going to be many things you can do to get them back to eating what they should, when they should. The first thing to remember is that prevention is always better than a cure. If you give your animals too much human food or an excess of treats, there is a good chance that their palate will acclimatise to this type of food and that they will then start to turn their nose up when you offer them good, wholesome, nutritionally focussed pet food.

However, once you already have a fussy animal on your metaphorical plate, there are going to be many different varied approaches you can take to cure them of their finicky ways.

The most important thing to do is to feed them at set times every day, at regular intervals, leaving the kitten food or dog food out for only ten minutes or so at a time. This way, they will learn to eat what you give them, when you give it them and you will find that they are far more keen to wolf down a healthy balanced diet.

However, it is also only fair to offer them good quality food and you may find that simply swapping generic brand foods for more nutritionally focussed pet foods may be all it takes to get them interested in the right foods again.
