How to Increase Dog Appetite Control
Dogs have an innate desire to rummage through trash cans to look for. There are certain breeds though, like beagles and retrievers that are famous for how non selective they are when it comes to . There's an old wives tale that says that only eat what they need, but in some cases this is not necessarily so. Some are not concerned about what they eat, and there are that develop strange and repulsive eating habits.
Ruling out the obvious reasons: There are many reasons a dog's appetite can increase. If your dog has been getting a lot of exercise lately, meaning it's using a lot of calories, obviously the dog's body will need that "fuel" back. If your dog is pregnant, she will need to eat more too. Dogs that are still growing or young also need more
If you have discarded all of the previous possibilities, it's possible that your dog has a health problem and needs to be seen by the veterinarian. Sometimes an increased appetite can be a sign of parasites in the intestines. The veterinarian will be able to see if the dog has parasites very easily by analyzing a sample of the dog's feces. It's convenient to go ahead and take a sample of the dog's feces before you see the veterinarian since he or she will most likely ask you for one. If parasites are not the cause, the veterinarian will need to look into the eating habits. It's also possible that the dog has a behavior problem that is causing him to feel unsatisfied with the amount of he is getting. The veterinarian will probably also ask you if the dog's feces look any different, since this can indicate an intestinal malfunction.
Dog Eating disorders: There are other disorders that can also causeappetite to change such as renal and pancreatic problems, one of which includes diabetes mellitus (sugar in the blood). So if you are going to take your dog to get a check up, make sure to take a urine sample so the veterinarian can test it. Kidney disorders cause a loss of proteins and muscular tone, and this then causes the dog to try to replace that loss by eating more. There are certain medicines that also increase a dog's appetite so it's convenient to ask your veterinarian about this if your dog is taking some type of medication at the moment.
