My boyfriend and I got our rescue dog back in October. He has been in charge of feeding her breakfast ever since then because I would normally be working, and then I would typically feed her dinner. She recently was sick and lost her appetite, found out she had some worms and also extra bacteria in her stomach. She gained her appetite back after being treated with antibiotics and dewormers. However, this past week, she has been refusing to eat breakfast for my boyfriend. I also just started a new job with more hours last week as well - i used to come in and out of the house a few times each day, now i'm gone for the entire 8:30am-6:00pm slot. (coincidence? or related?). I fed her breakfast with no problem on Sunday and Monday (yesterday). Today, she refused to eat or drink anything until I came home from work. What can I do to make her more comfortable eating for my boyfriend again??? I asked if he got upset with her or anything when she was sick and wouldn't eat, but he denies it. Also worth noting, she was absolutely terrified of my boyfriend when we first adopted her as well... But after a few weeks, they were best friends. Is she on a hunger strike because of my new work schedule??? Or has her fear of him come back?? or is she still sick and needs to go back to the vet???? Help! I worry that she will lose weight or become malnourished!
