Keep an eye on how long it normally takes your dog to finish his or her meals, you can identify health problems that negatively impact appetite in their earliest stages when treatment will be most effective and least expensive.
If your dog tends to graze through the day, there is no need for you to pick up the bowl between meals. Just watch how much food remains in the bowl before you add more. If it begins to increase, your dog's appetite is decreasing.
