    Cindy does she drink sufficient water? Maybe add canned with the kibble for the moisture or moisten kibble. Adding a little rehydrated with warm water. freeze dried such as Stella and Chewy’s or Primal freeze dried will help since these have veggies for the fiber added. Add slowly as a topper.

    Has the dog been to the vet?
    When a dog has a sudden change in appetite, behavior, bathroom habits; it is best to rule out medical issues for the cause before assuming the condition is related to diet.

    Hasn’t been vet for that but plan on. Has had b4 they not considered. Feed green bean or pumpkin but need daily. Hard with 2 other dogs control eating. She’s the oldest, like human I guess need more fiber. Thanks 4 response. I will look into a few options

    Is Nature’s Variety raw?? When raw diet is too high in bone this can cause constipation..
    My boy has IBD mainly stomach & he does really well on Wellness Core, Wellness Simple Turkey & Potato, Canidae Pure Meadow Senior & Canidae Pure Wild kibbles…
    Actually dogs need less fiber or no fiber, Patches vet told me, a dogs digestive tract is short made to digest a raw meat diet..

    If your looking for a kibble look at “Canidae Pure Meadow Senior” & “Wellness Core Senior” kibbles they both are high meat protein, low in carbs & the Canidae Pure Meadow formula is lower in fat 10.8% max & is very high in Omega oils for ageing joints & bones..

    Thanks Susan. I feed nature variety grain free limited ingredient, so not really raw.

    Best of luck.
