Shelley - what did her breeder give her? - that could be important as if you're giving her something different it's best to introduce it gradually. If she backed away from Weetabix it sounds as thoiugh she hasn't had it before.
My Basenjis all like milk and drink it with no problems. I personally used to give my puppies Weetabix or Porridge.
Helena, the Pups wouldn't drink milk for Elaine and so they didn't have cereal.
Since coming home we have re introduced milk and she would have little licks off our fingers but not out of the dish. However once one of our Cats lapped out of the dish she wanted it , and drank the lot.
Today we introduced weetabix and she ate a little from our hands but again not much out of the dish.
Just as an aside - when she is eating more be careful that she stays away from actual cat food - it is much too rich for the doggies - we found this out the hard way when Shaye kept trying to steal our cat's food - each time she succeeded, she promptly vomited it, and her own food, back up. This prompted me to ask the vet about it, and he told me never to let dogs eat cat fod….
Magnum has no problem with cat food. In fact, I think he prefers it to his own food. I'm of the opinion, though, that there's too much protein in it for dogs and ingredients that cats need and dogs don't, so we do our best to keep him away from it. Easy to say, harder to do.
Just out of curiosity, it seems to be a puppy thing to feed cereal, yes? I don't think I'd ever feed it to an adult dog as it seems to be valueless nutritionally and, at best, a filler, at least according to my research, and JMO, of course. Maybe as a reward or treat?
