Answered By

A. Do not give her human food, as this may aggravate any gastro-intestinal condition she may be suffering from. It also teaches her that when she refuses dog food, she will get fed yummy human food. If her stools keep looking off color and if she still refuses her usual food, then I would take her to a vet for an exam, possibly a pancreatitis test. In the meantime you should offer her some bland boiled rice with a little bit of broth and chicken after fasting her for about 12 hrs. Then slowly introduce her regular food again.
