Yep! I do the scoop and re-scoop again (multiple times)! It just that when the last scoop results in a smaller pile of food than she thinks is appropriate that she will stop eating it altogether. And, yet, it seems if I add another food to it, so there is a bigger pile, she doesn't like the concept of eating them mixed. It's crazy!The food that's Feeby leaves, is it flattened to the plate and difficult for her to eat. This happens with Kiwi and when I 'stack' it back up, she eats it.
I haven't done freeze dried meats. I have tried other types of 'toppers', but so far that is a big 'NO'. I am getting a sense she doesn't like multiple flavors mixed together, so each freeze-dried meat would have to match the food that is being served to her. She will eat mixtures of canned food - e.g.; liver & chicken, but if I would add some other brand with liver & chicken, it must taste enough differently to her that she shuns it. Something to do with mixing foods, I 'dunno'.Does she like freeze-dried meat treats? I used to powder those up and sprinkle them over Krista's food to get extra protein and to get her to eat more of her food.
.If Feeby doesn't have any chicken sensitivities, I would recommend EZ Complete as you can balance out a single serving of raw (or cooked) meat for her. Or you can make big batches once you're certain she likes the stuff.
She will save stuff for later, so I don't take food up until I think it has been out too long (~8 hours). But, again, an hour later or several hours later, if there isn't much left in the dish/bowl she seems to think it is somehow unacceptable (she did this when she was on dry food only too). A flat plate would mean food all over the floor! She's a licker/lapper.Does she eat off a flat plate? And have you tried leaving that little bit out for a few hours? Maybe she's saving something for later? Or maybe she just has her opinions on that last bit of food and you won't convince her otherwise.
So, you are saying the probiotics you suggested earlier smell like Temptations Treats? Hmmm... I do know she won't eat her Temptation Treats if they are crushed up on her food. By themselves, they are just 'peachy keen'!! I am getting the impression she is like those little kids (often not outgrowing the behavior) who don't want their different foods 'touching' each other on their plates!!!! I actually have a couple of nieces - well into adulthood - who still feel that way!I just had a thought, and sorry if it's already been suggested and/or tried. Since Feeby likes Temptations treats, and since I thought the probiotics smelled like Temptations, what about crushing up some Temptations and sprinkling the powder over Feeby's wet food. Might be worth a try.
I think so, but can't remember for sure. But the probiotics definitely had a strong smell, which Ruby apparently loved. When I was using it, I sprinkled it on top, then gently mixed it into the wet food, so there wouldn't be a dry powder on top of her food.So, you are saying the probiotics you suggested earlier smell like Temptations Treats?
There's some foods I STILL don't like touching, but I've gotten a lot better.Hmmm... I do know she won't eat her Temptation Treats if they are crushed up on her food.

I know about the weight!!On the positive side, even with the loose stools and vomiting, she didn't lose weight. Does she like fresh cooked chicken, that's got plenty of calories. It sounds as if you are trying everything, you must be exhausted and from frustrated. I don't know if you have tried this but does you vet sell high protein food .
