I just wanted to know what could be the reason for its low intake.?

I have a GSD male of three and half years old, the intake of food is very low, looks thin I am feeding him with dry foods and tried almost all dry foods from nutripet to royal canine and it consumes only 250 grams a day or even less, he is reqularly dewormed even medicines prescribed by the doctors didn't work. He is very active and a proven male. It looks so thin and Iam not able to take him to the shows, I just wanted to know what could be the reason for its low intake.

i think it is due to lack of exercise. i had the same problem with my gsd when she was a puppy. she just refused to eat whatever i put on her plate. take ur dog out for a walk twice a day, atleast for an hour. the gsd is a working breed, and if they are not sufficiently exercised they get destructive. also, if the dog isnt exercised it does not need to consume a lot of food as the energy requirement is lower than other active dogs.

Thank you Mr. Jamil, even I had the same doubt, I reqularly take him for a walk but not for an hour, but even when it went for a training for a month, where it had a rigorous training it was looking the same. any way Ill increase the working hours.

Instead of giving dry foods try to give chicken with rice or else mutton with rice... and check whether this works fine or not.

Hello Thinakaran, the only way is to get it exercise well. Not only walking but fetching the ball, jumping, running. Spend one hr with this things till ur dog gets tired and its tongue comes out and waters.Then give him fresh water, it drinks lots of water that time. This helps to clear its digestive track. feed ur puppy with pedegree soked in milk for half an hr(daily once or twice). Beef should be cooked well with more water. Let it become watery but it should be well cooked. C the change in your dog.
