How old is your dog?

Have you had your dog to the vet for a check up? This is very important.

Did you get your dog from a reputable breeder? If so, they will be very anxious to help you out with putting weight on your dog.

What do you feed your dog? Some dogs have a hard time with processed food such as kibble. It's full of fillers and hard to eat. Probably akin to eating cardboard. I suggest you try raw diet which is pretty easy. Google raw dog diet in your area. Your dog should eat 2-3% of his weight or, depending on what his weight should be, work it out to that. 10% liver, 10% bone, 80% muscle meat (heart, tongue etc.). Start with chicken for two weeks and then go to beef.

Let me know if you have any more questions but do get your dog to the vet and talk to the breeder first.

Would like to help but need more info to try, how old? Did it lose its appetite, what are you feeding her. Even heat could make a pyre not want to eat. The answers can vary greatly. Maybe you could add more info to get some input?

First a few questions how old and how long have you had her? Have you taken her to the vet for a full check up? If everything is fine Health wise I would suggest either a raw diet or a top notch Giant breed Puppy food just to put some weight on her Then switch to adult

Pyr losing weight picky eater
by: Anonymous

We could not understand why our male 1 year old was losing eight and would not eat. Tried every dog food out there. Took him to 3 vets who ran all kinds of tests and found nothing. We dewormed him and he started eating like a pig. Later he stopped again. Found him to have gained about 10 new teeth. When they were all in he started eating again. But this breed really does not eat a lot anyway. But save your money and try deworming first!
