  1. Any thoughts on “anorexia”. I have a lovely year old husky who is a poor eater. I have experimented with lots of different foods including those prescribed by our vet. Some times she eats it and sometimes she nibbles at the top and leaves the rest. I have added “yummy” stuff most dogs would love to eat and she walks away from it. Human food doesn’t appeal to her all that much and I don’t want to become her chef! Is there any absolutely irresistible additive you can suggest?
