Hi, guys! Hoping to get some advice on a picky eater! We brought home our little girl this past Wednesday, and she is so great! Our only struggle is that she is an incredibly picky eater. Our poor girl did come home with coccidia and has been on treatment for that since Saturday. She appears to be feeling pretty good considering what she is going through as she is playing normally, drinking pretty well, and her stool is beginning to become firmer. I would attribute the picky eating to her stomach feeling upset because of the coccidia. However, I first tried a bland wet food from the vet and then switched to chicken and rice when she stopped wanting to eat the vet's wet food, and she absolutely LOVES the chicken and tries her very best to eat around the rice and only eat the chicken. She also loves yogurt, which I have given her just a little because I read that it could be good for her gut for some probiotics (she's also on a probiotic from the vet). She also gets really excited whenever I am eating my meals as if she's super hungry. I am not giving her any treats, so I can't attribute the picky eating to that. I've also tried putting a little bit of unsalted chicken stock with her rice, which only helped a little.. I just want her to be gaining enough weight and getting proper nutrition, especially since she is dealing with the coccidia! I wanted to get y'all's advice on what I might should try or if anyone else has struggled with this same thing because I just want to do what's best for her! Any help/advice is so appreciated! Thank you! :)
