I’ve heard that hot dogs are not good for dogs.  I’m not sure how true it is, but I read that they will give dogs diabetes as well.  I would do your research first, but my gut instinct tells me no. There’s healthier options for your dog to eat.

Will she eat browned beef, rice, and a veggies?  Chicken and rice?  I wouldn’t give too much rice because it may bind her.

The chemicals would scare me from giving those to anyone.

Try some better food…if your sure there isn’t something medically wrong. Caesar isn’t very good quality. Lots of additives that she could be allergic to.

Hot dogs aren’t great as a staple, and should be more of a sometimes treat…try looking into homemade food-there are a ton of recipes online for homemade dog food you could try!

I would discuss this with your vet.

Have you tried the beneful soft food? It is covered in a gravy like a stew. I know when one of our Weims gets really fussy and for whatever reason doesnt eat as much as we would like to see her eat, we will supplement with that. I know it’s hit or miss with animals but it may be worth a shot. I wouldn’t just stick to hot dogs and processed meats either though, I too have heard they can be bad for our furkids.

I’m not the biggest advocate for people food for dogs, but there are plenty that are safe, like some baby foods, carrots, canned pumpkin, chicken and rice, as suggested, etc. I’d dig in to find some more safe-food options and see what works. GL!

have you tried putting canned pumpkin on the dog food? Like an icing? Pumpkin is known to be healthy for dogs and they love it.

And I would look for a new vet if they aren’t willing to offer suggestions or even recommend seeing her for a digestive problem, stomach upset possibility. I HATE when vets or any doctor are unwilling to offer time and compassion to a patient.

Baneful is full of additives and fillers, too.

She might have an allergy. Skip the grocery store brands and go to a better pet store. Do some research online about dog food ingredients and common allergies.

@happyface:  My thought as soon as I read “no suggestions”.  Good luck!

Oh, and just to share, it may be the brand/size of the food.  My maltese eats the beneful dry dog food and almost rarely ate it.  I stuck with the same brand, but bought the small bites for her.  She enjoys it a lot more.
