What am I doing wrong ?

I have two dogs, zoey she's 2 purebred Siberian husky and we've had her for almost 8months now. And 3weeks ago we got another dog she's a boxer/white lab mix and she's only 1 and her name is precious. Anyways zoey just doesn't seem to eat as much as she use too, she was eating 2-3times a day plus treats but now I'm lucky if she will eat just once a day she seems to be happy we thought she may have worms but I have been checking her bowels and nothing she was on purina alpo and then I tried switching her food to pedigree but still she's barely eating. I know she doesn't like having too many people around her when she does eat I know odd but she is more comfortable eating alone. Could it be because we got a new dog or maybe she's just not as hungry as much and she's good with eating one full dish a day?

I don't know either, is she otherwise healthy?

My dog is about 50 lbs, she eats 1/2 cup twice a day, and a couple of treats. But she's pretty old and not that active anymore.

Yeah she's still as active as always she's still drinking too. I haven't noticed any huge changes just her appetite

I wouldn't worry then unless she starts really losing weight. And do keep feeding them separately :)

Yeah my brothers dog she is the same age as zoey and she only seems to eat in the evening and she is healthy so i don't know maybe she is just happy with once a day I think I'm being too paranoid but our dogs are our family and my oldest daughter would be crushed if she was sick

If her poop seems fine and she's not lethargic then I wouldn't worry.
If she starts acting strange then you should see a vet.
Some unsolicited info..You should try Canidae or another food that's grain free. Better food, better ingredients, better for your pooch...less pooper scooping too. ; )

It's probably the new dog, but she ought to grow out of it. Try feeding them in deprecate rooms. Good luck!

It is probably because of the new addition. Don't worry she won't starve herself. Just give it a little time. It has only been a few weeks. Good luck!
