APPETITE

The more I see of humans, The more I love Dogs

Dog owners all over the world are faced with the problem of abnormal appetite their pets sometimes show. Some dogs tend to have a lack of appetite, others may have perverted appetite and yet some exhibit ravenous appetite. I have tried to list different types of abnormal appetite shown by the dogs and the causes which lead to such a behavior.

LACK OF APPETITE :


When my dog misses two to three meals at a stretch, I seriously start looking for the cause.

Causes :                                                                                                                                                          1. Emotional  :  The dog might be disturbed due to a stranger in the house or it might be due to a new puppy?


2. Infection    :   1) From sore throat
                          2) Worms
                          3) Gums
                          4) Bad teeth
The dog may want to eat but can't do so due to the pain.


3.Fever          :   As temperature rises, the dog will refuse food and go off his normal routine. He may go to his food, smell it and walk away.


4.Boredom     :  The dog might be bored with one type of food. A variation in diet might help restore his normal food intake.


PERVERTED APPETITE


Sometimes dogs eat rocks, faeces  or other inedible materials.


Causes:


1. This perverted craving may be due to dietary deficiency of minerals or vitamins.
2. It might be due to severe case of worms in the intestine.
3. Stool eating can be due to deficiency of enzymes.
4. Nervous and high strung dogs sometimes display a perverted appetite.
5. Often, boredom as a result of long duration of confinement and inadequate exercise will result in perverted appetite.


RAVENOUS APPETITE 


Causes:


1. Intestinal parasites; worms
2.Females during heat period tend to have ravenous appetite.
3. Happy dogs eat more.
4. Hand fed and pampered dogs eat more.
