Yorkie's Appetite Decreased

November 14th, 2006, 01:48 PM
Hey everyone!

My yorkshire terrier, who is about 11 months old, has recently had a decrease in appetite. She doesn't seem all that hungry anymore. She doesn't eat much of her food, but she does take treats during training and rewarding.

She is still active and loves to play.

Is it normal for dogs to have such a decrease in appetite? Could it be that she is just done growing and doesn't have a big appetite anymore?

She seems really bony... like I can feel her ribs and spine. But at the same time, we weighed her and she hasn't seemed to have lost any weight.

Am I going crazy or is this all normal?

Thanks in advance!

Have you taken her to a vet?

Also, what are you feeding her, and how much?
