Maybe she doesn’t eat, because she’s sick?
Did your vet already examine her to find the reason for not eating?
Did you already try Taste of the Wild kibble? It was highly recommended by our dog therapist and dog trainer who also trained our dog in her home for 12 days to stop his constant biting attempts (it’s a white German shepherd puppy, will turn 6 months this month). Since then we use Taste of the Wild. Maybe worth a try?
Our vet told us to give him white rice with ground chicken (or ground beef), because the rice acts as a binder and firms up the dog stool. Well, supposedly. So far (after ca. 3 weeks of this bland diet) it still didn’t bring that desired result. His first stool in the morning is relatively firm, the next few are so soft that I could not even pick up his dog poop on a sidewalk completely. So I still don’t dare to walk him by myself.
On the other hand my friend from Germany told me that her collie had soft stools for the first 12 months of her life. So maybe it’s normal and we just have to put up with it?
I doubt very much that the rice is to blame for the diarrhea, because it takes a few hours until the stomach digested it all. It must have been something he had before, maybe some rabbit poop or other stuff that he got into?
For instance, our dog loves to eat the rabbit poop in our backyard and we just don’t have the time to supervise each and every eliminating break that he spends outside. Plus in the grass you cannot even detect that rabbit poop.
