She will have a vitamin deficiency if she stays on that diet, which causes problems including organ issues. I would mix the chicken and pasta with dog food. As long as she gets both, she should be fine. Good Luck!

Put the dog food down. Leave it down for 20 minutes. If she hasn't eaten, pick it up and she doesn't eat again until her next meal time. Rinse and repeat. Do not feed her anything else and do not try and hand feed her. Don't hover over her and worry about it. Even if she goes a day or two without eating, she will be fine. No dog will starve itself when there is food there that it could eat. If you want to mix some canned food or chicken in with it, feel free, but mix it up really good so she can't just pick the chicken out. If she does eat just the chicken, don't add more at the next meal. Stop feeding her pasta, it's not doing her any good.
