Is Your Dog a Picky Eater?

Your Dog won’t Eat or Drink?

Goodness Gravy to the rescue!

We’ve been told by one of the largest pet hotels that the number one reason a dog owner is called by an overnight facility is the dog won’t eat or drink. For some dogs, a night away from the comforts of their own home can be a very stressful transition. Separation anxiety is a big problem for dogs.  They can’t comprehend why they are being left behind. The experts recommend providing as many reminders of home as you can to ease the separation stress. Bring your dog’s bed, toys and regular food.


If you are feeding your dog Goodness Gravy, add that to the overnight bag.  If you are considering Goodness Gravy, it could just be the one thing that gets your dog to eat or drink and saves your vacation.  The easy to serve individual packets are perfect for this situation.  The single-serve packets make sure your dog gets a consistent amount every time and the gravy stays fresh.  Your dog’s caretaker will also appreciate the simple and easy to serve packets.


New surroundings in just one of the many reasons why your dog won’t eat or drink. Your dog might be suffering an illness or they might have something in their mouth causing pain. It is important to seek a diagnosis from your vet to help understand the problem. However, some dogs are just plain ole picky without any underlying medical condition. There are several things you can try. Cut back on treats, stick to a regular feeding schedule, make mealtime more fun by playing first, go for a walk before meals, change the feeding situation, or (wait for it) add Goodness Gravy to the meal!


Here is a little known fact. According to the ASPCA a dog needs at least one ounce of water for each pound of body weight per day. There are a few simple steps to help your dog get enough water. Make sure your dog always has a clean bowl of water. When you travel or exercise, don’t forget to bring plenty of water to maintain hydration. Adding a flavor to water is an excellent way to encourage hydration. If you don’t think your dog isn’t getting enough water, then try adding some Goodness Gravy to their water. The delicious flavor might just do the trick.
