Springer Spaniel not eating dog food

My 5 year old bitch refuses to eat dog food. She will only eat scraps from our meals. I have tried all sorts of dry and wet food. Although she might initially eat them she then stops after a few days and refuses to eat more. I have tried taking away her food if she doesn't eat it and putting it down again next meal time but she would then go days/weeks without eating much. She got so thin. The vet has looked at her, and can't find anything wrong with her and she is all wormed etc. I now have to basically force feed her otherwise I am convinced she would starve herself to death. Has anyone ever come across this behaviour in their dogs?
