My Man COCO
by Joseph Rachal
CoCo - Little Muppet !
CoCo is a mixed between Poodle and Schnauzer (Schnoodle) He is chocolate brown with a patch of white under his neck. I acquired CoCo on Valentines Day for my Girlfriend. He is so cool. He is 1 year old, house broken, but will release if he's not attended to periodically. He has a problem with wet and well as dry food. He wont eat,if he does its a small amount.So im asking anyone who has experience for advice. By the way he had his first Schnauzer cut today. Handsome Rascal.
NOTE FROM LINDA AND MAX:
Hi Joseph, he's a very handsome chap!
Sorry to hear about his food problems - try gentle foods like cooked chicken (no bones) and rice in the morning. Important - remove the food after around 15 minutes if he has not eaten and then don't give him any treats or anything else to eat all day.
Tery him with another gently meal in the evenig. Remove it if he does not eat it. Try this for a couple of days - he should eat when he gets hungry -and a day or so without food will not harm him.
You could also try a raw diet - but you need to know a lot about it and be very rigorous, so I'd try this first.
