dog not eating??

Since Monday, my dog won't eat her dog food. She'll eat her regular treats and tries to mooch table food, which she has always done, but won't eat her food. She is very active,her tail is erect when she walks, loves to ride in the car and my UTV, and doesn't seem to be sluggish. I'm totally at a loss as to why she all of a sudden quit eating her dog food. Anyone have any ideas of what might be wrong? I have not fed her anything that she hasn't always eaten and none of her regular stuff in any different quantity. Her "bathroom" trips outside seem normal too.

I gotta go agitate the techies!

I don't mess around with a dog not eating their meals. Once may be a fluke but multiple times in a row they go to the vet.

No eat no poop get to a vet better safe then sorry. Hope it ends up being nothing much.

As Charles Barkley says, "I may be wrong, but I doubt it".

Years ago I had a Lab do that. He always ate dry food in his bowl and he stopped. I had no idea why,he would eat treats,table scraps and except for leaving food in his bowl was his old self.
I went to fill his bowl and noticed a hole in the bag we kept in a plastic trash can in the garage. It looked like someone had left the lid off the can and a mouse got into it.
I tossed out the food and got a new bag of the same thing and he was fine with it.

Like others posted if the dog has behavior changes or won't eat for several days a vet visit might be the way to go.

Good Luck

Called the Vet. He said if she's still not eating her food by monday, to call and get her in there. No mouse, as she's an indoor dog and the food is indoors. I have zero "rodent in the house' issues. She sleeps on a loveseat. I took her bowl of food in and put it right under her nose last night, and she gobbled up every bit of it. She had better not get used to Breakfast in Bed!!! LOL

I have had dogs do this after being fed something special. They expect it at every meal. If were eating or cooking they wont eat because they think there going to get some. Usually after missing a couple of meals things go back to normal.

I rarely feed her any people food, and if I do, it's very infrequent so she doesn't get to expecting it every day. This morning, she was back at her regular "mode". She ate every bit of it as usual. She may have had a bit of an upset stomach.

My one setter stopped eating in november. Took him to vet and found out he had lymes. Treated him with meds and he never rebounded. Lost him last month. Dog was 6 and always had top of the line tick meds. Better test him asap

my great dane just went through that he didn't want to eat like he normally did we were going to take his food back and get another bag but decided to try it a few more days and a few days latter he just started to eat like he always did with no problems so I can not say why he did it but it worked it self out on its on
