You have to know the reason for the lack of appetite in your dog to decide the accurate treatment. The loss of appetite may be the symptoms of any underlying severe diseases. Therefore, you have to find out the reason and give proper treatment.

What to do when your pet lost appetite, is the question you may ask umpteen times. Here are many ways to solve this problem.

• Providing proper diet, plenty of water, natural supplement and lots of exercise are the best ways to solve the problem of less appetite in your dog.

• Make a change in the diet of your pet dog is another pet care tip. A slight change in the diet once in a while does not create any problem to your dog. If the dog eats new food, it is healthy.

• Dogs like warm food with good smell. So always try to give food with warm and fragrant food

• The package diet may not provide proper amount of necessary nutrients to your dog. As nutrients are very essential for the optimal functioning of the body, you should be sure to give it the natural supplements

• The food should be free from all toxins and contain the essential nutrients.

• Adding some flavor to the dog food is good to increase appetite. Garlic can add flavor. But remember to apply in small quantity.
