    Zeus has been on meds now for almost 2 months for an infection. For the past few days he won't eat his food, I'm not sure if it's from the meds or something else. I have to give him his pills in something (cheese, peanutbutter, etc.) so I'm not sure if that's the problem or what. I'm guessing he is use to the extra yummies and is not eating, so I've started giving him pills at a different time. He ate fine before this this so I can only think this is because of of the meds and will hopefully stop when there done ( 1 more week).

    Don't have any advice to offer.........just well wishes with lots of boxer kisses for Zeus. Hope he is feeling better soon! We sure missed you guys at the park earlier this month. Mom sends her best, too. Keep us posted.

    Love,
    Madison and Gunnar

    How old is Zeus?

    Our little girl is going through a "snobby" food stage right now as well. Sometimes she eats, sometimes not. It's been going on now for well over a week, and we've had her checked and her routine hasn't changed. Wondering if it's just a "puppy thing".

    He's 2, and has always been a somewhat picky eater. But now he just turns up his nose. I'm hoping once he's off the meds he'll be back to normal. Sometimes he'll eat if I add something to the kibble, but I don't really want to keep doing that. I keep thinking if he gets real hungry he'll eat, but now the only thing he's getting is what I wrap his pills in. I've even tried giving him those at different times, so that maybe he'll eat but so far no luck.
