:? Ok, a couple of weeks ago Stinky wasn't eating that much, if any, then I discovered he was teething...poor thing didn't have many left and couldn't chew... :? after that when he had most of them back he ate little...I thought it was his teeth again, I checked, one was coming on top of the other but then it fell... :? after that he still ate little. Then, I started thinking it was the food. I feed him Eukanuba puppy which he usually devours with no problem but in the last week he has thrown up the foamy, yellowish stuff you guys associate with being too hungry, also, I free feed him so I know he's not eating as much as usual and this food bag smells fishier than the last. I thought that was the problem....well, it wasn't :roll: ...yesterday morning he threw up again so I hand fed him...he ate half a bowl of food :shock: ... thing that FINALLY :D brings me to the actual question...

ARE CHIS PICKY ABOUT DISHES?? like, his bowl is plastic does that make a difference? He's been eating from it all of his life..about 5 months of it at least..and i noticed he ate it faster out of his treat dish (a ceramic mini bowl). Any suggestions? 'cause I don't wanna make him used to eating out of my hand, he's pretty darn spoiled already :D

P.S. sorry if i make no sense i'm not a very good writer at 3 am.. :D

I don't know either.
I think I read somewhere that plastic can pick up odors?
I fed my big dogs from plastic bowls all their lives and it didn't seem to matter to them. I did get them new ones when the old ones got all scratched up though.
I feed Sandy and Koke from ceramic bowls. They are actually bowls I had left from when I had my rabbit.

:D Stinky's bowl looks like I bought it yesterday! no scratches, no use, no nothing...but I do agree it might be some smell thing..we went to my mom's house for about 4 days and my sis has a dog...since that visit Stinky doesn't really eat properly (tho he was also teething at the time)..So, I guess is a new bowl for him...I just wanted to make sure since once I decide to get him a ceramic bowl...it'll take me AGES to decide what I wanna buy..plain white won't work :D :D :D

I have seen some really cute ones. The one I like has little paw prints going around the outside.
Of coarse there are always really pretty ones that were not actually made to be pet dishes too!

here's zoey's food dish- it's ceramic. i found it at petsmart!

she also started not wanting to eat out of her plastic bowl for some reason. plus i heard that plastic bowls are harder to keep germ-free.
