Hi all! We adopted Roxy from our neghbors son back in December and she has been a wonderful addition to our family but recently I have notcied that she lays by her food bowl and shakes. I don’t know why she does this, does anyone have any idea what might be causing her to do that?
Huh. That’s a new one by me! Kaos is such a piggy I can’t immagine him even looking at his food before eating, much less taking the time to lay down by it! Is Roxy still eating and drinking ok? Is she having diarrhea or any other side effects?
Well, I’m not positive, but, if she’s not having any other adverse effects, I would say that it’s more of a psychological thing that a physical probelm. Try moving her bowls to a different location in the house and see if that changes anything. Do you leave food for her all day, or feed her at specific times of day? If she normally browses all day, try picking up her food and feeding her only at certain times. If the problem persists after you change physical setting and routine, or if she begins not eating/drinking or having diarrhea, then I would deffinately call your vet as there could be something really wrong.
