Question Puppy won't eat kibble.

My 13 week old German Shepard puppy will not eat her kibble. I've taken her to the vet and she is healthy. I have tried several brands of kibble including what she was fed by the breeder I am really getting worried. I am giving her nutrical and wet food but I know kibble is better for her. Does anyone have any ideas? thanks. Gail

Try adding some warm water to it. Or, some low sodium chicken broth. Or, add some canned food to entice her.

I go with Katz advice. We feed our dogs dry biscuits (kibble, I think to the Americans ) and it would be very plain and dry on its own, I don't think I would eat it! We add a little tinned dog meat to the biscuits, mine get half a tin each and the biscuits. We mix the meat up really well so all the biscuits are nice and meaty and they really enjoy eating it. Occasionally we will put a bit of warm gravy in there too which makes it even more appealing to them.
Try that with Heidi's biscuits. Hopefully it will work! Let us know!

The warm water should definitely help. Unless maybe it is because you hvae not had her at your home for very long? Sometimes doggies can be very nervous for a while and not eat until they settle in. Whatever it is I hope it gets sorted out soon!
