Home for Irish Setter Lovers Around the World
Ruby went through a stage just before her first season.
Shes on the raw diet n gets a light brecky of chicken wing n biscuits then for tea when shes had a long walk she gets her meat with veg-fuller meal
Maybe he jus full(if having large meals) or nt hungry, jus like us wen we gt sick of having the same thing every day.
has your setter been sick or loose? sleeping alot and quiet?
Maybe worth vetcheck jus for peace of mind.
Kate and Ruby
Dash is 22 months and his appetite varies from ravenous to totally not interested. Some days, he won't eat his food, but he'll eat treats you offer. Other days, he wolfs down his food, our smaller dog's food and anything he can snitch from the counters and table - and still wants more. I remember when he was younger he went through a fussy stage - and just during this past summer, after a well-meaning friend fed him salmon from our grill, he wanted only fish for a while. So glad that phase has passed. Based on my experience, if your pup seems otherwise healthy, I wouldn't worry too much.
Hi everyone, Ogie's appetite is perfectly fine. We brought him to the vet and he has a sensitive stomach, so everything we gave him, he would just throw up. Apparently it's common in Irish Setters. We have a special food for him now and he LOVES it. Thanks for all your comments :)
hi michelle ! great to hear that Ogie's found his loved diet :) Oberon also became a picky eater at 9 months now, and we are trying so many different diets. probably he's got a stomach sensitivity, luckely all tests are excluding any major desease. so its just a matter to find the right food, and maybe he has to pass this age :)
may i ask you which food worked for ogie? oberon is now in a mixture of naturediet, ID food, and meat+rice and yougurth in the evening, but what works one day doesnt work the day after ;)
