"My dog is extremely picky. My vet recommended this food, but my dog will barely eat it... she's very thin and I need to get more weight on her."

"He won't touch his kibble unless something else is mixed with it. At first, I would only give him people food, then he wouldn't eat that either."

"My dog has food allergies, so what do I feed her? She likes homemade recipes, but there are so many choices! What homemade recipes should I use?"
