Default What the...

Tucker, has suddenly decided that he does not like The Honest Kitchen. How a dog goes from madly devouring something to completely refusing to eat it, I'll never know. Rocky still enjoys it. This stuff is far too expensive for them not to enjoy!

I know its crazy. Before I homecooked I tried every food out there. Some she didn't touch and then others she would eat for a couple of days and stop completely. It's enough to drive you crazy.

Nutri-cal it's a supplement....I bought a tube thinking I'd need to give some to Paris after I brought her home but she adapted well with eating. I still have the unused tube. Guess I'll keep it in case she gets picky later on???

*Edit - here's the link from amazon.com
Amazon Amazon

This particular one is for adult dogs and comes paired...I have the single puppy tube.

Says it's for
  • stressed or debilitated animals, those recovering from illness, surgery or whelping, aging animals or just plain picky eaters
  • Nutri-Cal has an irresistible taste, just place the recommended amount of gel on your finger, on the animals paw or mix with food and watch them eat
  • Nutri-Cal is packed with vitamins, mineral and other essential ingredients

My dogs (especially the Yories) never turn anything down? I do feed them 2 or three different Kibbles, and add vegetables so they have a variety. I also add some Fresh Pet or a little Natural Balance as a topping at dinner.

This is what I would like to do really, a wide variety of things, but at this point dh rolls his eyes everytime I buy something new for the boys, in his opinion we have enough. They are still primarily on fromm kibble, which Tucker still eats without a problem,bI am just shocked at his refusal to eat thk when he loved it so in the beginning!

I actually do something very similar. I also add warm water to soften the kibble and bring out the flavor. And they love having peas mixed in with their food.

We stopped using it because of the number of ingredients.... Gus did great on it for awhile, then starting having symptoms. But since there are so many things in it, I couldn't figure out what he was allergic to.

So I stopped feeding it.

Tucker could be sensitive to something in there and it's making his tummy upset, even if he doesn't' show symptoms.

A dog who typically eats well (I think Tucker isn't a dog with "appetite boundaries"?).... won't just not eat for no reason.

You may need to go to something with fewer ingredients.
