I'm new to this and could really do with any advice anyone has to offer!
My 10 year old labrador sheepdog mix, Molly, was diagnosed with early stage kidney failure three weeks ago. The vet put her on Hill's KD prescription diet and she is also taking half a Fortekor tablet every day.
At first, she loved her new food and would tear through it. But last week she just stopped liking it. I am wondering if this is because she is bored of it? Before she was diagnosed with kidney failure she would have gotten different food to eat every day. I know the Hill's prescription food can be bland, but I am reluctant to mix anything in with it as my vet told me this will cancel out the work this prescription food does.
When she refuses to eat her food, I take away her dish and give it back to her a few hours later. It doesn't really seem to be working though. Her appetite is normal other than this, she still wants food will gobble up anything else she is given. I'm really at a loss as to what to do, because I'm afraid she will starve herself
