Willy is about seven months old now and I have been feeding him eukanuba puppy food for large breed since he was about 9 weeks old he seemed to like it and it also seemed to agree with him. Now he just seems to hate it and he does not eat near as much as he used to.He always acts like he is starving but i will check his food bowl and hes barely touched it. The vet says he is in perfect health and he looks very healthy and acts like a wild child. So do you think I need to switch his food or maybe mix something with it. Any suggestions would be appreciated........ Thanks Rick

Yes, just like with humans dogs can get tired of the same food day after day.

I have found a few tricks to keep mine from getting bored. Here they are:

Put in a handfull of dry corn flakes in the bowl and mix it up before serving.

Maybe add some yogurt to the food now and then.

I have used Rice Chex cereal mixed in with the food. They seem to like this a lot.

Maybe 1/2 can of carrots or green beans mixed in with dinner.

You don't have to do this everyday, maybe once every third day. All these items I listed are safe for dog consumption.
