How can I get my dog back on commercial dog food? She loves table food but now she wants only table food. How can I get her back on her old dog food?

Sometimes it seems that the animals we live with know something we don’t. In this case, your dog realises that the nutrition she needs lies in the food you are eating and not in the commercial food she has consumed until now. So, perhaps it might be worth listening to your dog’s message and look at options for a homemade diet. It is a fairly easy process and a number of resources exist both in supplying further information and providing recipes. Please see the work of Richard Pitcairn, "Natural Health for Dogs and Cats", "The Complete Herbal Handbook for the Dog and Cat" by Juliette de Bairacli Levy and "The Barf Diet" by Ian Billinghurst. Once she is on a good, homemade diet, you will see many changes, notably a smooth, silky coat, more energy and a happy disposition.
